Twins / Re: A10 barrel
« on: 17 February, 2020, 19:04:39 »
Hi,
    It looks like one of the cracks has extended into the flange/finned area of the barrel and its location, drilling a small hole at the end of the crack to stop it progressing is near impossible. I wouldn't use it, I would say get someone like SRM to see if lining would be an option.

Hi Dave,
             If you are fitting fork gaitors the shroud has an inner of diameter of 55 mm and outer dimension of 61 mm. The gaitor slips over the 6 mm lip.

The spring butts up to the lower yolk in all cases.

Hi,
     Thanks guys, much appreciated.

Chris, the image is helpful as some sites list part 40-4909 (RHS) as 3/8 x 7/8 x 1.120, others as 3/8 x 3/4 x 5/16. Your image confirms it is the latter.

To add more images to your post, under the box stating "Choose file" hoover over the wording: (more attachments) , when your cursor changes to to a hand, left click. Max 4 per post.

Best wishes...

Hi Chaz,
             Unfortunately there is also a bracket which isn't:

I have both but I will be using the symmetrical with the spacers.

Thanks all...

Hi Chaz,
             So they are not symmetrical?

Hi Chris,
            Thanks for that, solves a mystery. I have 1 bracket symmetrical and 1 offset, I guess someone redesigned it to use the same size spacers.

Hi,
     Can anyone help with the bracket dimensions.

I believe it should be offset and the one I have been supplied is of equal dimensions.

Thanks...

Hi Chaz,
            Service Sheet 710x has the frame and seat section dimensions for a B40. You might be able to work out the dimensions you need from these?
