Hi all, hope everyone had a wonderfull Christmas...

And I want to thank all for the tips on my trannie..I now see why that the work on these old bikes ain't cheap.

I have the end-play problem corrected and the rest of the transmission put together..the only other problems was the TIME involved in adjusting the shifter forks, so the trannie would change gears smoothly...assemble-disassemble..measure..repeat several times...

But it is now completed....Thanks to all..

Now I have one final question on the trannie,,what is the general opinion of using 60-80-90 wt oil in it? What's the better of the three??

Thanks again, George
