The rear drive vents through the transmission in theory. I've never found the need to add one to the rear drive. None of the Loop (or Tonti)rear drives came with a vent from the factory. I do "burp" the rear drive though - get it up to operating temp, remove the fill plug, replace the fill plug.

Don't over fill it - only 180 cc total.

I think that's probably down to one of motorcycling's heaviest flywheels.


I didn't have a loop frame model, but that reminds me, I noticed several times that my 850 Tonti braked quicker if I pulled the clutch as well. Big smile

Thanks Dave, I thought a heavy flywheel meant better engine braking
And thanks Amboman, I've burped the bevel twice, but never measured it in dead accurate, just waited till it appeared at the level plug. I'll be more precise next time and see if it helps.
Cheers, Paul.

Tonti brakes are better than loop brakes.

The Loop flywheels weigh over 13 pounds and that's without the ring gear and the clutch components, plus the weight of the massive spinning crankshaft.For comparison the LM1 flywheel assembly weighs little more than half of that of your Loop.
I weighed the flywheel assembly of a Panther M100 that I used to have many years ago and that must have been the daddy of 'em all, just shy of thirty pounds.
