The part number for the tool you are looking for is 61-3003. I bought mine from Lighting Spares some while ago. I would try asking Draganfly if they have one because they bought all the stock when Lightning Spares closed down. C&D Autos might also be worth a try.

Thanks Trev,

However the part number you quote is for the tool for the Top Fork Nuts, not the Bottom Plug.

Thanks for the responses,

I still have to wonder why the brand new WD B40 wiring harness I purchased recently from Burton Bike Bits has a 35 Amp fuse in it?

Sorry for being 'electrically dumb' but when you say "..on a 6V classic bike, 15/16A fuses should be ok with half that rating needed for a 12V system..." what amp fuse should I use?

Not being very clued up on electrics, I am trying to find out what fuse I should use on my WD B40, it has a Boyer electronic ignition and, being ex-RAF, is fitted with indicators.

A new wiring harness I bought has a 35 amp glass fuse (the amp rate is printed on blue paper inside the glass tube) however, I have read somewhere that a modern glass tube fuses of 35 amp 'blow' fuse is equivalent to a 17 amp 'continuous' fuse.

Can someone please explain all this please and recommend which fuse I should fit.   ???

Anyone here own this motorcycle, BSA Thunderbolt OCY 681 F ?

I owned this ex-South Wales Police bike in the early 1970s and have a few photos of it from that time if the current owner is interested.

Thanks Arthur

We managed to removed them OK with a large adjustable spanner, I just thought I'd get something 'proper' to assemble the forks again.

Large adjustable it is then  :)

Hi

Does anyone know what size the Fork Stanchion Bottom Plug is please, the part number is 41-5130.  I want to purchase a socket to fit it but it seems an odd shape/size.

Hi John

The part number is for the metal part, the so called 'Packing Piece'.  It's the O ring I'm trying to identify, if its an original fitment, or not...

Singles / WD B40 Forks
« on: 01 March, 2017, 14:42:50 »
On dismantling my WD B40 forks I discovered an 'O' ring fitted on the following part on one fork leg described in the parts book as "Packing Piece, Top Bearing" part number 68-5134.

On checking the other fork leg there was no 'O' ring fitted to the same part?  The parts book doesn't show an 'O' ring?

My question is, should there be an 'O' ring fitted here or not?

If there should be one, does anyone know what the part number is for it?

P.S. - Yes I know I need new stanchions  :'(

Noted.

I don't reckon the forks have been apart since the bike left the factory in 1970, as its only got 997 miles (documented genuine  :) ) on the clock.  But that's another story...

Hi Arthur

Thanks for that, yes the sliders are going to be painted so I'll try the heat treatment next...

Hi

Trying to remove the chrome fork seal holders using a new correct special tool but they will not shift.  Am I looking at applying some heat to them and/or longer bars on the arms of the tool.  Not done this before so any advice please.
