CRM Repairs

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Anyone would think I give the CRM a hard life. To fix it to a mechanically sound state I’m happy with after its last outing its only needed new rear shock linkage bearings, seals and collars, new swing arm bearings and seals, new rear wheel bearings, new front brake pads, clutch adjustment, replacement of the kickstart mechanism (requiring removal of the clutch), helicoiling the oil drain plug, air filter cleaning and re-oiling and the number plate hammering straight. Hopefully the MOT tester will agree with my idea of mechanically sound as it needs one soon although I still need to replace the fork seals.
