Floppy gear lever on the way home
« on: 08 January, 2020, 05:34:14 PM »
Gear change lever went floppy on the way home tonight  :005:
Made changing up or down difficult but not impossible thank chryst,  thought it may be a loose screw on the gear lever but no, looks like the return spring has gone  :159:
Do I just need to buy item 13 in the attached or the whole gear shaft assy item 12, gear change mechanism ?  :084:
Is it easy to replace or a pita.

Is yours definately that type, (Up to Engine No 340169). Later type has the spring complete with mechansim in one unit

Whatever you probably wont know until you strip it, pretty sure the  clutch assy has to come off to get the shaft out

Engine number is 436400, so looks like it's the 340170 so part no T1190270 for the gear change assy?
Am I right?  :187:

OK,  cheers Tim,
I am thinking about seeing how much it will cost to take it to a garage as am not sure if I have the time to do it myself.
Will get  couple of quotes tomorrow. 
Cheers for your help  :031:

Hey Mike, sorry to hear that yours has gone floppy. Might be an age thing  :008:

Went and saw the boys at 'onyerbike' (A41 Kingswood). They seemed to be pretty onto it.

80 per hour wasn't too bad I thought.
