hi Chris,
nice shots. concerning the timing cover, are you talking about the casting at the clutch actuator?

The TR25W- does a fella need a size 22 boot to reach from the peg to the shifter? Or does he simply not shift once underway? Was the brake pedal also left in its normal location?

That's fairly common in trials Jack. Move the footrest back to the swinging arm pivot for better weight distribution, rider's weight over the back wheel and better grip. And yes, you move your foot off the rest to change gear. Most trials sections are ridden in one gear, so not really an issue.

On my pre-IHO I turned the camplate upside down and reversed and shortened the gear lever. You have to add a kink to get it outside the kickstart shaft, but it gives the 1-down, 3-up change and you can keep your feet on the pegs.

Cheers

Yes.
I have seen them like that before - do you know what they were fitted to?

Chris,
i thought i had posted pics of this type from one of the ABR's (2 years ago?). the silver metal flaked, big tank B50 from Sydney (that caught on fire briefly :oops: ) that won the trophy for best unit single had that style lug. i've never seen it before. i also thought that i asked the question then (deafening silence :roll: )
