A start

We got this bike a short while ago, unlike most bikes we get in this one was in really good condition. And as we disassembled it everything was fine, things were going smoothly apart from the oil plug in the engine, that bastard was stuck and took a lot of effort to get loose!

Unfortunately the bike has probably taken a fall sometime in its life, the gear lever was missing and the gear selector could be slid sideways. There is supposed to be a clip that holds it in place, that was broken. That means we have to split the engine and check to make sure the broken clip hasn’t damaged the gears and get a new selector in place.

This update works well as a guide to the order in which to disassemble one of these bikes, all the pictures are taken in chronological order.
