Re: Burman CP kick start locking

Your assessment is correct......the reason is that the gears should have pointed teeth,not rounded off.If the first tooth on the quadrant is rounded off,you can grind it away and rely on the next tooth to mesh.........dont overdo it tho,or you wont have any teeth.........then you cant join the army!

Re: 4G Conrod Advice

In view of the foregoing,its obvious that the old rods are sold on for reconditioning.If the rods were discarded ,then it would make no difference which kind of rod.Anyway,who pays 100 quid for something then throws it away.Certainly no one from Birmingham.
