Distance piece behind engine sprocket

Does anyone have the distance piece for behind the engine sprocket lying around? Part number is 1250-56. Drags don't do it any more and single spares don't list it.

Re: Singles timing chain

The very creatively named....derby bearings!

I've used them before for chains, bearings and seals, they are right next door to what used to be wilemans motorcycles, and used to supply him - so they know what they are looking at when it comes to old kit.

Re: Singles timing chain

I had a simple conversation with the local bearing supplier yesterday and was able to purchase both new primary and timing chain for a VERY reasonable price, and I'm very happy with the quality.

Re: Singles timing chain

Interesting, it was Andy that said to me that there wasn't a supplier of good quality chain any more!

I'll take a trip over to the local guy at the weekend and see what that one is like.

Re: Singles timing chain

Thanks Keith, I'll contact them.

I am aware that drags sell them, but I sent it back as I wasn't happy to use the type of link they supplied with it.

Singles timing chain

I've been given the impression (from my usual chain supplier) that there are no decent 1/2 x 1/8 chains available any more.

I'm interested to see what everyone has been doing with theirs, or indeed if anyone has been brace enough to try a good quality bicycle chain?
