A chromed aluminium 'Sundance' handlebar grip is suitable for many drifting jobs on scooters and pre-heating the casing with a blow torch also works wonders. 1 - Engine Strip Now you can remove the gear selector fori< ('wishbone') which is unusual because it is secured by an M6 bolt and wavy washer with a 9mm head. Withdraw the splined shaft from the outside of the engine. Be aware of the shim between the gear selector fork and the casing which will drop down when the shaft is removed. 43 The best alternative to a flywheel holding tool is an electric or air impact socket driver, which can shock the nut undone without the need for a holding tooL If you are stuck at the roadside however, it is possible to lock the crank well enough to undo the flywheel nut by knotting a piece of nylon rope and inserting the knotted end through the plug hole so that the knot is located in the squish area between the piston and cylinder head .

This bearing is not only very important in that it carries the fun weight of the rear of your machine, but also because it forms the bottom stop for the layshaft and gearbox, and therefore its position effects gearbox shimming. As a result it is always worth checking the condition of your old one, since many dealers would still rather use a good original Innocenti bearing than the poor Indian pattern parts available up to now. Lever out the old oil seal then clean and de-grease the bearing. If you spin the clean bearing it will probably sound pretty rattly, but try again after lubrication with a little gearbox oil.

Such casings are to be either welded or renewed . Check the condition of the bronze bush for the kickstart shaft. if this is worn it can be replaced by heating the side casing and tapping it through with a suitable-sized drift. The bronze bush should be flush with the casing looking from the inside. If not, tap it back into place. Early klckstart shafts are weak and prone to breaking just where the shaft comes through the bronze bush, as shown below. 2 On later models Innocenti thickened the kickstart shaft by 2mm at the weak point and machined Ihe face on the casings further back to suit.
