Re: - GIRDER FORK SUSPENSION -

As well as being longer the W/NG forks are narrower where the wheel goes in and the axle is smaller diameter (Stepped nut smaller.) You can't readily swap front wheels. Nev

Re: Field stand and one of its two spring clips

Re: SQ4 Sludge Trap enlargement

Most engines have simple straight drillings and there's nowhere for the sludge to collect. It has to go through the bearing and just does, but slowly. When you feed two bearings from one source you get problems. If all the oil goes out the first bearing the second gets none. With a set up like the S...
