Sorry, I was pressed for time both on the engine removal and re-installtion so didn't take any photos.

But have to say its pretty straight forward and if you really wanted to push it you could take the engine out (or put it back in) from scratch in about an hour. 

I take much longer than that because I fuss around checking stuff and cleaning, greasing, measuring and generally being a geek.

But its an easy bike to work on.

I have few last little things to do and its basically finished.

Had a fantastic ride on Sunday  :ricky: :ricky:

The bike is going very well, took it slow and easy to start with , but sort of forgot about the recently opened engine after an hour or so.  Very smooth, and quiet and going very nicely  :thumleft:

Quite rusty after an extended break - so had a few moments  :o  Recon my boot saved me from some sort of nasty twist/sprain/break, when I was a bit too exuberant powering along a thick sand berm behind Mamelodi mountain - the front lifted and then fell sideways, stuck my foot out and had it wrenched/twisted quite violently, but apart from a slight ache on the way home its fine, could have been unpacking the crutches again  :P, so very thankful!









Soooo glad to be riding again!

Just a quick thumbs up for Conrad and OffRoad Cycles.

They did a great job and what I really appreciated is the level of care they took, you don't always get someone who cares about your engine the way you do.

Also appreciate them picking the engine up and dropping it off  :thumleft:

All for a very reasonable price!
