Re: Outer timing cover oil leak

Probably beat but that's over a period of nearly 4 months off being stood without starting.

Re: Outer timing cover oil leak

Well I drained the sump and got about a pint of oil out. So it seems that was the problem. As Mark said draining from there back through little hole into outer case. :roll:

Re: Outer timing cover oil leak

It's not wet sumping, that happens whilst your riding. Very messy. If your oil tank holds enough it can fill the crankcases. When it gets to the level of that little hole, rather than draining into it. It flows out filling the outer cover. Next place it escapes is the gear lever. Cheers Mark sounds...

Re: Outer timing cover oil leak

Thanks everyone for the advice I'll get the cover off and check the hole you suggest. It is very small according to your vid Crankbuster ( nice video by the way) and yes Mark your right it has been stood for about 3 months. So would wet sumping get through the gear change shaft ?

Outer timing cover oil leak

I've got oil leaking from the gear change shaft. I thought there shouldn't be oil behind outer timing cover is this correct. If so what is the cause, the bike hasn't been started for about 3 months.

Re: PES Clutch Question

As chucksy mentioned, the PES gearbox has needle roller bearings in the sleeve gear as well as the other spinning gears. There are also various ratio options depending...

Re: PES Clutch Question

I've got the PES clutch and very pleased with it,and I'm thinking of fitting the 3 speed NEB gearbox so have 2 questions.
1, Does the PES clutch fit the 3 speed NEB main shaft.
2, Also what size sprockets do people use on the 500 CCM with the 3 speed NEB gearbox.

Re: Wet Sumping

I'd be worried if I didn't get a tea cup of oil when I removed the sump plate. The non-return valve in the bottom is supposed to be replaced as a service item, mentioned in one of the sheets. On a Bolton CCM it holds back a lot of oil. On a B50 it holds back the oil in the pipe returning to the top...
