|Hi all, well, with having a bit of spare time on my hands as I wait for my new job to start I've been busy with the Garden, getting my Africa Twin back on the road and now I've moved on to my old Cagiva Elefant!|
The bike has sat for over a year with very little been done to it so thought I'd make a start at these damned Ducati timing belts! I stripped the bike down today and found you don't need the engine out, just needs an engine mount removed to get into the belts.
Unfortunately the pulleys are rusty with sitting for almost a decade in storage so I've stopped while I decide to try cleaning the adjusters or replace them.
Just thought I'd share a couple of pics from today's caper!
Here's the old Elefant in bits, a nice bike to work on really!
Here's a pic showing the dreaded timing belts everyone goes on about
Amazing how the bike shines up, that belly pan's no stranger to a tube of Autosol! It must have been loved at one time!
