Re: New 350 owner/help ID a 66

If you find slack in the gears its often because the bearings for the shaft are shot, so shimming the gears will not solve it. The bearings get damaged by swarf from the cam or rockers that gets carried down with the oil returning.

Re: Mudguard wanted

The forks are not Ducati and the rim diameter is bigger than we normally use, Probably just about any other Forum would do better than we will!, However anything Ducati related we will be pleased to help.Can't help thinking thats a heavy frame for a 160 sprinter,
