Shimming up the selector drum correctly can make a huge difference to the smoothness of changes.

Do you mean it stays in second gear?

Well I built a new garden workshop and finally got the mk v home .
I have just started the strip down,the front engine bolt turns freely ,which is a real bonus .
The bike needs a complete strip down,all the metal work needs refinishing the gearbox rebuilding ,the wires are a bird nest of insulating tape and oils,so I think I will rewire .
All in all a winters work . Pics to follows along with lots of questions

so i had a little time this afternoon so I started to make my seat base from some boat building resin and woven mat ,its very easy to do just some cling film gaffer tape and a cup of tea




 once it has cured I will get the foam on the seat pop the tank on and sculpt the foam i use an angle grinder and a 24 grit sanding disk only because I use this for sculpting oak at my work,and 120 grit disk would do less damage

The frame lowers have been altered to fit the battery's so they fit behind the gearbox and centre stand .





More to follow when I get some work done on it
