Re: Clutch release bearing cause & replacement

I am back. 8) Replacing the bearing was not as big of a task as I first though. All you have to do is remove the cotter pin holding the clutch release arm and remove the pin, the arm falls off, pull out the slotted piece and the bearing assembly come out. So simple even I could do it. The difficult ...

Re: Clutch release bearing cause & replacement

After finding a diagram of the clutch arm assembly the repairs do not look like much of a challenge. Finding a SKF BA7 is interesting. One distributor said there was stock in Belgium another said the stock was in France, maybe one in the USA,. some clown on ebay wants U$36 for the bearing and U$40 f...

Re: Clutch release bearing cause & replacement

It's a long post but the actual repair only took me about 1/2 hour. The real trick is not trying to do it at 10 degrees F. :? As far as getting that square rod into the hole the trick is to either get a strong magnet that will hold the rod as you turn and push or to use a hack saw to cut a small no...

Re: Clutch release bearing cause & replacement

You are right it is long. I am wondering if it would be simpler and less nerve racking to pull the motor out of the frame. I helped Lutz in Halifax remove and replace the transmission once while the motor was in the frame, that was a test of nerves. Getting the clutch rod to fit into that square hol...

Clutch release bearing cause & replacement

Yesterday the bike suddenly started to make another strange sound, first I thought it was an alternator bearing; but sound would increase in volume when the clutch was engaged. I am guessing it is the clutch release bearing. Why? The clutch and bearing were replaced about 7500 km ago, there was alwa...

Re: Questions for dealer before I buy?

Ask the dealer for a list of people they have sold to and call these people with questions, don't be shy. You can have the best bike made; when the service sucks.... As far as a 2 mile commute, walk or bicycle it is better for the environment, your health, prolongs your life and also that of the Ura...

Re: Headrest

We fix a piece of soft UGLY coloured foam tubing over the Luggage rack rail (pic 64s)

Re: Harmonizer is here!

Nice toy, had one for about a year, been using the same instructions Northernguy posted. I works quite well. The tach feature is real handy, a lot easier than counting the number times a cylinder fires in minute :)

Re: Balancing Beads & Tubes

I haven't had any problems lately but I have to remember to position the valve stem @3 O'clock position, tap on the stem before I checked the air pressure. Prior to this, when I checked the pressure without orienting & the tapping of the valve stem, all the air leaked out. I managed to re-inflate t...
