the spur gear in the housing on the wheel had stripped some teeth.

It's not a spur gear, it's a crossed helical gear. Might be worth asking Red if he has a spare set of speedo gears. He's replaced a few original Laverda FLAM wheels with Suzuki wheels.  I don't think he re-uses the Laverda speedo drive.  It's probably simpler to go with a magnetic pickup on GSXR wheel conversions.

Not if your using the original instruments.
I refitted the drive on the Motodd when changing to GSXR front wheel using SFC1000 instruments.

Cosi is correct, I reuse the speedo drive and housing when changing to GSXR wheels, is a bit involved getting everything to fit but is achievable
only time I don't reuse them is if the owner wants to run a GPS Speedo like on the SF3 I am building at the moment

Great pub the mita mita, don't drink to much that road can do strange things to you stomach after 70 Klm using only 2 and 3rd gear. Left right left right etc

Have fun guys.

8.30 am departure time seems some of us were on time and some of us not.



Some more stragglers finally roll in something about Sydney traffic or such but we all know the real reason... dont we



Seems ChrisK forgot to reset his watch after he crossed the border so according to him he was in fact early ??  (banghead)



Hmm then someone needed to stop for the first of many pee stops... so not to let on that we had Chinese bladders we came up with a cunning ploy of pretending to work on Chris K's bike.



Seems the fuel tap police weren't on vacation after all hmm dare I say he is not the first one to be spied on the trip being lax.



Seems the 3C still has what it takes to pull birds





Bathurst the group became one again and Sascha's brother Dave finally turns up on his Formula just as we are rolling out of town.. so whilst Chris K can be excused for his late arrival, Dave on the other hand is from NSW so his watch should have been correct







Chris Pritt doing some praying to the Laverda gods



Waiting for the 4 BEARS to open for Brekkie



At least the owner got into the act and was wearing Orange for us  :o



Marty going the healthy route .......no bacon





Turn off to Kankobin



What we have here is the other Chris deciding to have a leak stop oh and that cause someone had complained that we were doing enough miles this trip invented away for that person to make a detour to Albury  :-X



Why you shouldn't use shocks made in China



Seems even BMW riders forget to turn off their fuel





Let alone Lav riders though the excuse from one is that its already got Carillo's

All reunited once again at Mtta Mitta



An oil tight motor no leaks here for a change





One last word from ChrisK before we called it a night and got into some drinking the real reason we came on the ride, oh and some dinner I guess

Looks like an absolute hoot, you are lucky to be so many and organise rides like this. Very happy to see one SF there at least, do the big strong triples carry his luggage?
All those fuel taps left on and not a single busted gudgeon pin yet, are you guys playing the lottery?

Mine has had an intermittent miss under 4,000rpm. That became worse and worse, until it ran on one. Brett the fix it man changed the plugs, played with the ignition mapping, no change, bar running on two except for the miss.

So I road Australia’s best road in third and fourth to keep it above 4,000rpm. While that’s all good, jogging around 45k corners with a bike that bucked like a bronco wasn’t much fun.   ::)

Bike is now on the backup trailer :(

Right now having reds after dinner, and as don’t have to ride tomorrow, more are to come. ;)
