gearbox woes.

Hi All,

If I can call upon the collective knowledge of this forum on a gearbox question, if the G50 is not setup correctly i.e. the battery tray is either pushing or pulling the G50 would the result be a hard selection of first and second gears but not third and fourth and also the difficult selection from second up to first gear.:(

As an aside, is there a collective noun for a group of Vincent owners, my choice is a “forum of Vincent’s” any others?;-)

Hello Chris, Try it with the battery tray loose, Also Vins feel hard to change by hand, It helps to turn the rear wheel while you do it, We are talking 63 year old bikes so not like the new stuff. Good Luck, Bill.

This sounds like a selector adjustment problem. If you have moved the nuts on the battery plate so the just touch the back of the G50 and tested for flatness with a six inch rule across the face of the G50, after tighetning the footrest nuts, you should be Ok, with that. Then go through the instuctions in the Rider's Manual to set up the selector mechanism. Ken

To borrow from actual animal group names, and because of the alliteration, how about Volary (aka Volery), or Venue?

I thought at first, a blether, then a discussion then, an argument of Vincents i'll leave it to the cognoscenti.

On the request, the stuff that slides out of the side of any discussion can be gold.

I think I have seen the colective thread before
general feeling was not my Gaggle it was a Clatter (obviously no lead in the timing covers)
