650 Interceptor & Continental GT / Downsides to a 140 outback
« Last Post by General_Apathy on May 25, 2024, 10:44:38 am »
Curious to hear from those that have gone to a 140 at the rear if there have been any downsides to the slight upsize.

I’m usually one to keep stock but I am not convinced that the 130 was used for a technical reason, more for cost.

Bullet with the UCE engine / Classic 500 kickstart shaft oil leak.
« Last Post by Ianmac on May 25, 2024, 09:00:38 am »
I’ve spent the last few months sorting various woes on a 2009 500, a stolen recovered project but also with longer term neglect. The last job has been an oil leak from the kickstart shaft and the obvious solution of course was a new seal. No joy. Second attempt was the seal holding plate which has sealant but no gasket. I bought a fresh tube of sealant and applied a more generous coating. Still no joy. I decided to check the plate surface for true but it wasn’t badly out. My enthusiasm for project work was seriously waning at this point, dismantling it for the third time. I reassembled it and filled it with oil. Ten minutes later I looked under just as a tiny bead of oil was emerging from a crack in the crankcase. The crack was so small that I hadn’t seen it when it was clean or when it had been leaking for a while and the oil had spread. JB Weld has hopefully done the trick, no drips in a week!

When I had my Meteor performance mods never entered my mind. It was a lovely relaxed motor as standard and that's how I rode it, relaxed.

I enjoy power as much as the next guy, I even did some club racing when I was young but the RE doesn't call for it in my mind.

I do have an original seat, but I'd guess with shipping and customs sending from Germany it might get a bit expensive...
