Burman modifications on a W/NG

Postby mike.giannetakis » Sun Sep 30, 2012 8:04 pm

The W/NG is indeed a fine bike to ride, and a pleasure on today's roads with small modifications..........the original WD gearing provided a dreadful gap between 3rd and 4th gears, so if you change the gearing to civvy Burman equivalents it markedly improves the situation...
Does anyone knows where to find the parts to do that ?
Or can i change the complete gearbox ? and 350 NG's (Rehunter) is suitable ?


Thanks Mike

Yes, Mike, you can change the complete gearbox. Any other Ariel CP box will go straight in as will the heavier duty BA from the 500s. However I am sure that Neil Baker, Aomcc gearbox guru, details page 2 of the Cheval, will have the necessary parts to make the change to your own box. I had a VCH for some while with the same gear ratios and it drove me crackers so I swapped the ratios.

Co-incidence. I was reading a 1990 copy of Cheval and found this.
