I know a chap that builds cooling system parts for Hurricanes, and there's even one of his on a certain ww2 bomber, an Indian could do better on the side of the pavement.

I consider myself moved! The TS 250 was made in a far eastern country that churned out noisy two strokes and inline 750 four cylinder things that didn't handle at all well. So don't worry they'll never catch on, poor quality control and ludricous engine designs like FOUR cylinders with electric star...

The B50 is hard to start, vibrates like a jack-hammer,very loud - have been known to trigger car alarms, make dogs bark and upset babies in prams and as such is an anti-social machine.....DO NOT put this bike on the road !!!

clutch centre thrust washer ??

Chaps,

I notice that my b44 clutch centre does not have a thrust washer between itself and bearing end faces, whereas the CCM has, should I put one in, or is this a CCM mod ??, also, how many of you run primary chain tensioners ?
