  1. This is what the usual style of elephant foot adjuster looks like. The ball end type Chuck showed off wildguzzi I've not seen before although they would offer the same benefit. Ciao
  2. I still dont see why you cant take a twin plate hub to a machine shop and surface grind the engine side down to the same friction plate spline width as the 6 speed. Ciao
  3. Whats that material fitted between the front mount and the shift arm? Doesnt look std to me. Ciao
  4. The later bikes had the well known oversize selector arm pivot boss which caused spring failure on a regular basis. Replace or machine/file this down and a new Chuck Spring which I can send you if no one in the states has one and you're good. Ciao
  5. Looks in great shape for that mileage. Ciao
  6. Looks clean, rare to see original relays and an unmolested relay base and wiring. How many miles? Ciao
  7. You say that like its a bad thing And yes I at least accept your apology for your lack of previous clarity and loose interpretation of figures.I can't comment for the others. Ciao
  8. I love how this internet stuff works. People throw out there some second hand, unsubstantiated, fuzzy grey claim as fact and when they're called out on it and asked to justify/verify this info they start back pedaling, clarifying, and accusing the ones asking for the facts as involving them in an internet pissing competition. The joys of trying to wade your way through off the cuff dross masquerading as fact and getting to some genuine information that might be of actual use now or in the future. Ciao
  9. My moneys on NOT, by some margin as well. Ciao
  10. This unit will fit your bike with the exception of the gearbox input hub which should still be useable on your bike. So you will end up with a spare part to suit a 5 speed bike. http://www.mgcycle.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193&products_id=1698 Or you can spend 4 times the money with TLM. I know which I'd choose. Ciao
  11. Yes I used the Benz one on the Daytona throttle bodies and it worked fine. Ciao
  12. I wouldn't buy anything from TLM due to the frankly outrageous prices they charge. You can buy a complete new clutch assembly including flywheel for your bike from MG Cycles for around 6-700 euros. I also agree you check the clutch lever freeplay screw isn't restricting the master cylinder piston from returning to the fully out position which may cause the clutch to slip. Ciao
  13. I have one of these. http://www.dynaplug.com/pro.html Ciao
  14. That's because it is. Carb conversions are generally done by two types, first group, the strip it down to the bare bones and bugger the common sense real world day to day useable bike and the second group that's incapable for one reason or another of getting their head around even the basics of a std EFI system. The bonus is of course you get to spend around $700US to do the carb conversion when its all said and done to save a reputed 25LBS. Dont quite know where that figure comes from but there you go. Ciao
  15. You probably had some air in the system before you replaced the levers so it was a little spongy which would give you an engagement point closer to the bar. Now with the system bled the engagement point is further out because the system has less sponge in it. Dont your new levers have adjustable reach? BTW the best method for bleeding by light years is with a pressure bleeder. You can buy one in the states for $60. Thats what I did. Vacuum bleeding is pretty rubbish and there is always the risk that when manual bleeding you push the master piston a lot deeper in the cylinder than normal and risk seal damage from the seal passing over an area it doesn't normally see. Pressure bleeding avoids this and makes fluid flushing really easy. Ciao
