Part six is up. This is probably the most difficult stage of the job, and yes, I do manage to screw it up at least once!

Second try went better, but it was running a bit long so had to cut it off. Hopefully less of a wait for part seven. Enjoy!

Another great video, I felt for you when you realised you had left out those damned locating pins, I hope it wasn`t too hard to clean up all those spider webs and that you got it all.

Thanks guys. It wasn't too bad to clean it up, just a bit of solvent and elbow grease. This is where it's really great to be a hobbyist as opposed to trying to do this for a living - if you're trying to make hours there can be a lot of pressure to just slap it back together and hope it doesn't come back in a few months. If you're just at it for fun you can really take your time. It's all part of the process

Default Congratulations Jon.

What a sensational contributor Jon is!

He has set a new standard in "HOW TO's".

Not only have I enjoyed his posts, I've learnt a lot too.

Congratulations Jon.

Hey thanks! We'll save the congrats until she's back together but in the meantime I'm glad I'm not the only one nerding-out on these bikes. Had a moment of pure mechanical joy last week when I got the crankcase together (for hopefully the last time) and reattached the shift lever to bench test the gears. She responded with that addictive sound and feel of each gear sliding neatly into place. Perfection

I'll try and get the footage sorted out for the next episode in the coming days

-J
