Believe it not Graham, even though mine had been installed wrong at the factory and the shell was split, it ran as smooth as it should and the shaft was perfect. It had done over 45,000 miles on that bearing.

The housing is only a housing, if the pins are badly worn then, the shaft is damaged  ;)
It is the pins that are in contact with the shaft, not the cage or the housing

Trigger, it all seems fine. I was going to replace as I had the gearbox apart. I'll re use them. I've ordered two replacement bearings than run in the gearbox though they seemed fine.

You old boys worry too much.
 If gear box bearings are good then just reuse them. I only change gear box bearings when they have play or have gone rusty from standing   ;)

Never checked that one but i suspect m6x1 same as the adjuster bolt
NB remeber the adjuster bolt is a "special" as there is a bit of m8 thread under the head for the lock nut

Hi,

just had one of the pistons measured and looks like a standard 51mm piston. As suggested before, do I got straight in the 0.50 mm over size for a rebore or the 0.25mm?

Thanks
