New Technical Notes available
30th March, 2012
We regularly publish technical notes to help our customers with some of the difficulties that they experience with their Royal Enfields. These latest additions to our Techical Notes library deal with dismantling rear shock absorbers, dismantling and reassembling the clutch on a Bullet 4 speed and solving Bullet clutch problems. We hope you find them useful.
Bullet 4 Speed Clutch Dismantling and Reassembly
Some riders find the Bullet clutch temperamental; either dragging, creating problems for gear selection or slipping, with consequent loss of power to the drive.
There are many possible causes for these problems, among them poor adjustment;worn or buckled clutch plates and unsuitable lubrication in the primary drive.
Dismantling and rebuilding the Bullet clutch is quite straightforward and should take no more than a couple of hours. (Much of what follows applies to RedditchBullets, Twins and five speed models.) Read the full article about clutch dissembly . . .
Bullet Clutch Problems
The standard clutch fitted to Royal Enfield Bullets and other Royal Enfield machines is a simple, traditional wet multi-plate design—with little to go wrong. Even so it is not entirely without fault and clutch slip, clutch drag and a heavy clutch action are not uncommon problems.
In this article we will suggest a few tips that may help avoid or cure a number of typical clutch problems.
Dismantling Rear Shock Absorbers
Shock absorbers require very little attention. They support the machine and iron out the bumps without need for regular servicing. However, even though damper units are not serviceable, there are occasions when it is necessary to dismantle the units.
You may decide to fit covers different from standard, chrome and black covers are available. You may remove the covers altogether, leaving the springs exposed.
