just thought i'd put this on as it don't appear very lively on this page!,
i had play in my cush drive(XL500R),so whilst fitting a new tyre(nearly killed me) i thought i would have a go at taking up the free play,so what i did was- cut several inch and a half piece push bike tube,brushed patch glue over the drive prongs and then stretched the tubing over the prongs,it took up the free play a treat,i was very pleased with myself!,i hope this helps and if not you have read it anyway!, good day to you all:).
