Re: Assembly defects, with pics & other stuff
The customer that came in this week, (clutch gear photos in the first post), had figured that his engine was too noisey; but he wasn't sure why. He had pulled the clutch cover off and noticed that the clutch gear was loose, but figured it was normal since the engine was "new". Had he rode it much longer, it would have been totally ruined.
I'm hoping that this thread and the posts that follow will help others prevent major failures. If you catch some of these problems early on, they are completely repairable. It is up to us to be as knowledgeable as possible in order to get the most enjoyment out of these MB's.
