Re: Tall Man and His Mystery Motor Scooter

I too first thought in Jawa, but definitely Claus is the way more knowledgeable man here. Photos show the truth. Puch was very common in Southgermany, not so much in the north were we grew up. Jawa 350 from mid sixtees ran in my costarrican home town until some 7-5 years ago. We used to locate my on...

Re: Noise in Gearbox (?)

Yvonne and Fran in march were stopped by their load with only one disc shot. Florida is flat, they were on a harsh climb. By the way their shaft from clutch into gearbox was badly worn too. So when you dive into the clutch check for the transmission shaft spline too.

Re: Noise in Gearbox (?)

not used for some time? Then I would guess rust or scratching friction plate rivets.

Re: Final Drive Stud Shearing

This should not be a problem for you I think but worth a check to make sure the FD casting is flush against swingarm. :) IMPORTANT: and when you stick through the axle without the wheel, left swing arm bore and final drive HAVE TO LIGN up perfectly. If not you obligate the axle and cause wear on th...

Re: Cutting Up with Uralists

"A man without knife is worth at most half a man!" Original tone Grandpa Heinz, the east prussian plumber on his 50 marriage anniversary. Lifted his suit, pulled out a cigar. Pulled his wallet and poked out of it a tiny indescribable thing of 3/4 length, 3/16"wide and 1/8" thickness: opened it, cut ...

Re: Final Drive Stud Shearing

how much riding in between reassemble and second shear off? I had on my final drive a certain twist of the final drive "ear" that holds the 2wd FD. With the result, that it was dificult to pass the shaft straight through from left to right. In your case, there might be something more to it, like a c...

Re: Now THIS is a sidecar!!

Keith, if I remember right, that photo showed up earlier in time and is supposed to be from someone in Netherlands.
It would be a good idea for buddy Medio Tico though. Half of his grandkids fit in there, so only 2 rounds around the block needed... ;)

Re: Refurbishing a 1980 Yamaha SR500

Re: What brand sidecar is this

Re: Difficulty shifting into neutral/reverse

Just one observation: A) Move to neutral while still rolling. In stand still the gears can stay opposed and will not permit to match into reverse at all. B) I prefer to use to shift into reverse with the heal. = good control and enough force to overcome the sticky point. If needed push a bit the rig...

Re: Ural / Enfield Dealership Selling Stock

Do Ural motorcycles attract hoarders, or does owning a Ural lead to a hoarding mindset? :lol: :lol: :lol: It is not a condition caused by the bike, it is a logical consequence of: A) The bike requires a "preper kind of rider". B) The rider is a hoarder by instinct and therefore chooses a Ural. C) A...
