Ully Service , after cleaning, put some fresh grease in there, and push the pin in to distrubutate the grease.


Ully Service , rubber seal put back in , and moutning every thing back.


Ully Service , also put a little neversease on the pin cap, these can be a pain to remove when they corrode.


Ully Service , as the bike had been running on 1 cylinder, the customer asked the plugs to be replaced , front scoop off for the front spark plug.


Ully Service , aribox cover off to get to the rear plug.


Ully Service , with a long extention and wobble joint you can reach the rear plug.


Ully Service ..eeeh the customer cleaned this plug... but closed the gap way to close... 0,9 mm to 1 mm will give a nice and strong spark.


Ully Service ,airbox cover back on


Ully Service , check and adjust the primairy chain


Ully Service , and bike turned around, to check the front end


Ully Service , some things you notice ?? axle sticking out ? forks under tension ? or bearings not good ?


Ully Service , the bearings are perfect, but the axle was loose :-X
