At the least replace the seals and gaskets, both engine and transmission.
If you don’t replace the oil pump at least replace the o-rings on the feed
and discharge tubes… Pretty up the engine and tranny since it is out and
accessible. Also a good time to do whatever detailing the engine bay might
need. Also you might consider replacing the prop shaft u-joints. Do you
need to do any front suspension work since the bonnet is off (access is now
easier)? Is the radiator OK (access again)?

…and since it’s out… main bearings aren’t all that expensive, and
easy to replace.
…and since it’s out… rod bearings too, so might as well do rings.

If its not broken don’t fix it! What was a simple clutch job will turn into
a complete frame-up restoration and you won’t be on the road for several
years. Stop! Clean it up and put it back together.

Howdy, friends,

I’m travelling to New Zealand tomorrow to spend two weeks or so travelling
around the south island by motorcycle. I’m going to leave my email going,
and it will be fun to see, on March 7, how many new notes were sent to the
list. I’m guessing 368 or so.

I will be in Auckland for a few hours in the afternoon on March 7, between 4
in the afternoon and six in the evening. If there are any listers on the
south island, I’d love to meet you, and if there is anyone in Auckland who
wants to go to the airport for a beer on the 7th I’m buying. If you’re a
Kiwi and want to meet, just drop me a line at “@Roger_Los”–my girlfriend
will be monitoring my email and will pass along any notes. Include your
phone number and I’ll get in touch.

Thanks for everyone else’s patience, I’ll look forward to reading the
backlog when I get back!

I agree as well . Notice the amount of " in pieces " and " not making any
exhaust " etc etc descriptions on the list . This is probably the result of
continuing well past the original task. Clean it up , put it back together ,
and go for a drive !!-----Original Message-----

Do You Yahoo!?
Talk to your friends online with Yahoo! Messenger.

Two things you should not miss, there is a back road from Georgetown
through the mountains to Te Anau, narrow, steep and gravel in parts but
absolutely stunning vistas, also go and walk on the Franz Josef glacier
all the way up to where the ice is breaking off, you can feel the
thunderous vibrations. the only problem here is that where you will be
parking the bike is inhabited by a species of parrot who love rubber,
they will come and start pecking away at anything made of rubber on your
machine.
The South Island must be one of the most beautiful spots on this earth.
Cheersm, Robin

Hi Rodger,

I’ve only just started receiving the list and note that you are coming over
this way for a holiday.

It’s nice to see some one out on their bike, my beema’s been gathering dust
for the last couple of years.

You are most welcome to drop in for a beer or so.

Cheers and safe biking,
