Re: WM20 kick start seizure.

I've already made the solution, how quickly people forget. :wink:

These bushes have been machine to take an O-ring to keep the dirt out and lubricant in.

Re: WM20 kick start seizure.

Useful to keep the oil in for sure..There isn't a problem in the other direction but I guess there's a 'belt and braces' benefit from the O ring fitment...If there was a problem with ingress of anything I'd have had it by now...I've done over 200,000 miles on just two of the many BSA singles I've owned...Ian

Re: WM20 kick start seizure.

This would absolutely never happen on a Norton gearbox ! Oil comes out everywhere, as was intended. Presumably at some point in the 1950s, society began to worry about a few drops of oil.

Re: WM20 kick start seizure.

I did see the bushes on your website while I was looking at side stand parts Mark but didn't notice the o ring feature.

Re: WM20 kick start seizure.

I’m guessing Stuart your experience is why I’ve seen so many outer covers with worn bush housings. Hence the oversizes.
I don’t expect every owner will give their bikes the love and attention yours do Ian.

Very nice picture, Ian.
Luckely there is a filter on the tank (!)
