  • TLR Snapped chain, smashed engine casings etc

    My chain snapped last week breaking off part of the generator cover casing, and cracking the gear change casing, breaking the clutch bit off too.

    I wanted to know if all year of TLR use these same parts (mine's 2002) and also if TLS & SV1000 parts are the same as I'm having trouble finding them.

    Also, is there anything I should know about removing the gear change cover? Obviously oil is out first, thanks.

      Yea I don't like the location at all lol. But the haynes manual says it can be done with the engine in the frame.

            How did that happen? Too tight or loose? Bad chain?

                  i used a 1/4 drive 8mm socket. and find the 1/4 dr adaptor that fits the drill chuck. then use a 6mm wrench on the adaptor to break it loose. once that;s done you can screw it by hand.

                    and when you put it back on you will have to feel the spot to put the spring around the post inside.
