Leak free RGS
Posted by JERRY on February 9, 2018, 12:45 pm
Yesterday the new rocker box bolts arrived after the first order was lost in the post so my RGS has been up on the workbench longer than intended. I have now fitted the copper gaskets tightened everything down and set tappets. Not sumped too bad while being up on the bench for around five weeks. Went to start it this morning and hey presto it started second kick and then when warmed up settled down to a nice tick over. So far all ok and leak free. I was going out this morning for a test run, but rain put paid to that. I'm looking forward to a few classic runs on it this year just like this one taken a few years back on the Fleet run. The forks aren't normally this short, its just that the picture was taken as I realised I had to turn left and didn't see the sign until the last seconds and had to do some very sharp braking. The old mod did tell me off for not paying attention, but hey I was just enjoying a ride in the country and being 17 again!
The oldest rocker in town!
