Ahh, that makes sense. I didn't realize they used a pushrod though the shaft.

Enjoying your projects Doug. I thought if you like to go on the back roads down to key West you might want to check out Herb's Limerock Country Club about ten miles north of Arcadia. I always stop there on my way home when I've been up north. Neat place. He keeps an Indian Bobber parked in the bar. There's a picture of the bobber on his web site. Even Herb has a web site.

looks interesting. I think I'll be passing thru there, as I like the west coast better than the east, if so I'll stop in & say howdy.
And look at the Indian too!

thanks for the link, I'll email them tomorrow & see if they have seals & stuff. these have been rebuilt, but I want to carry spare seals with me.

this is from an 88 300, so the springs are probably going to be a bit light for the bike, but I have no idea what other years would fit, or what size/weight I need.

Thanks for the offer tho, I'll see if I can figure out what I need

Doug

I have some 03 & up .48kg springs (Way heavier than stock) you can have for free.
If you need any parts or info on your forks- be it springs, seals, set up, oil level, etc, contact this dude, knows his stuff- one of the good guys in the industry.

Yes, the stock clutch setup is a bit tricky to work with..
I have the special tool that locks the engine drive sprocket.. and that makes it much easier. I can retighten the locknut inside the transmission without the need to disassemble the clutch. But, the tools made in Siberia seems to do the job well!:)
I put in the "modern" 4speed transmission several years back, and the clutch is much easier to install with the new clutch basket. But I keep breaking/ wearing out the second gear in this box.
The gears in your 3 speed looks good, who made them ?

I have a 1947 chief frame++ heading over here, I hope to build a bike from this ..eventually. I have some of the missing parts for it, and hope to trade parts for the rest. I'm still not sure if I fancy the skirted fenders, but like the weather protection and the comfort:)

A slight misalignment would put huge strain on the chain.

Im not sure who made the gears, but they are the US made ones, not the imports from India, which are not as good. these gears have about 25k miles on them. a little worn, but not bad. I know Kiwi & Rocky both sell good gears.

the gear locking tool works good, but when I broke the trans in Russia, the secondary shaft bushing went out, & the shaft dropped. so you couldnt lock the gears together.

I'd like a 4 speed, but they aint cheap. One of these days I may bite the bullet & get one tho.

The clutch basket has 3 rows of teeth, the missing row is where the generator drive goes in.

Good tip, make sure you install the genny drive with the clutch, it wont slip in afterwards, & you'll have to remove the clutch again to install it.
that sucks. you'll only forget it one time!

Doug

I got some parts in, UFO black fenders, Prog Suspension shocks, & a gas tank.



The tank is made in Nevada by Paughco, they've been in business for years. good stuff! holds 4.2 gal, that, with a 1 gal spare tank should cover me anywhere Im goin, 200-250 mile range.

Ive got an old Triumph parcel grid I think I'll put on the top, & I need to find a set of 03 anniversary tank badges for it.

Also, it looks like it cut into my steering radius a bit, so I'll probably install some reliefs where the forks need more room (thats a fancy way to say Im gonna put a couple dents in it, so it turns more)

You didn't even need to say that By this time we gathered as much.


It's starting to look the part, dude. Hey, are you swapping that belt for a chain?

well, I feel I need to overexplain things, just in case any bmw riders look at this thread.

And yes, it will get a chain drive.

hahaha
I wont have to dent it that much.
the pan held 4.2, the shovel 3.5.

the worst place for gas will be mongolia, where I may have 180 miles between fillups.
(300kms)

Huh? Hey, I resemble that remark!
















So where are you going to take the tank for custom fabrication to increase capacity whilst creating clearances required to maintain maximum turning radius, sir?
