Re: My Dnepr MT-11 Story

Nice. Now junk those Bavarian Money Waster tank badges and get a set of KMZ ones from Oldtimer Garage. That will really puzzle the great unwashed then.

Re: Dnepr gearbox photographed strip and rebuild

If your gearbox is an MT804 type?

Sounds like you have left the spacer MT804594 out of the box during the rebuild

Re: Dnepr identification

And some old parts - M72 style controls. Later K65 or K63 carbs with adapters. Later style tail light. Hope it was indoors or tarp covering (but I doubt it). The transmission may be full of water or in the least contaminated as the speedometer cable is missing and the hole looks open. Those handleb...

Re: Kettenkrad

I think that's a "fishing" price, I've seen them for sale for far less in recent years. Way back in 1986 I got to ride on the back of one at a motorcycle museum/restoration shop that specialized in WLA's in Roy Wa. They had it for sale and wanted $8k for it. Not too sure whether that is a 'fishing'...

KMZ K750m from 1963-65 ish with a few updated parts. Fairly genuine bike that has been modified with available bits to keep it running.

Re: 1WD vs 2WD Dnepr

Get a handbook and parts catalogue off Charlie Harvin's site at http://cvkustoms.com/index.html You have the modern lightweight drive shaft off the MB650M1 or MT16 model there is a mystique about the performance of 2wd and much of it's praise is by people who have never owned one. the golden rule is...

Re: 1WD vs 2WD Dnepr

The driveshaft shown in your photos is the later lightweight one. it is pinned into the U/J at the wheel hub end and slides on its splines at the Diff end. This copes with ALL loads quite adequately. Just make sure the diff has 100cc of good oil in each compartment and grease the nipple on the diff ...

All used the same 30204 wheel bearings and spacer assemblies
So, any 30204 bearing will work?
Obviously

Re: 1WD vs 2WD Dnepr

I have all 3 types. !wd, 2wd diff and 2wd with diff lock. The most capable all rounder is 1wd with tyres to suit the terrain. Big problem with the 2wd models is traction on the sidecar wheel. MT16/MB650m1 is pretty good for reliability and your mechanic is talking crap. Phase the shaft correctly acc...

That's a bit rich .... works out around £1200 sterling :o I'd take it for half that at most.

Re: My Dnepr MT-11 Story

What I've gleaned from owning a number of Dneprs, and working on more, is that the hubs with the oil drilling/grease nipples were fitted to the K750 K650, MT9 and MT10. The MT10/36 got the same hubs but without the drillings and nipple. From MT11, a new hub was introduced with three flats on the ou...

Re: pinion bevel gear lash setting

Thanks for input. Dneprlover the bolt holes on the final drive where it bolts to the swing arm fork? helicoil for the same size bolt? They are currently in good shape and don't loosen up. Any tricks to removing the bearing for the output shaft to the sidecar side of final drive? In trying to remove...

Re: CJ750 For Sale

It does look nice!
Manufacture of the M1s started in 1986 so you can take that 1959 title as a completely spurious one. I stlll like it though
