    Benelli 125 Enduro

    Success at last i have finally removed the cog from the end of the crankshaft and split the engine and removed the bearing and seals. The cog has been stuck fast to the end of the crank for months i decided to give it another try today and it came off straight away.
    Has anybody had a crank repaired i have a new big end bearing,pin and conrod kit i just need someone to fit it and balance the crank ?
    Might be able to reassemble the bike for Stafford show.

    Good news - that gear popping off so easily must have freaked you out after months of effort. Many years ago in my MZ riding youth I had to rebuild cranks quite frequently and I used a company in bath called Piston Broke in Fishponds Bristol (get it?). They were still going recently but I've not used them since 1991.

    PistonBroke
    Unit, 13-15 Felix Road, Bristol, Avon BS5 0HE
    0117 941 2300

    They had a big old precision press for cranks, an old Dennison I think it was - cream coloured anyway. We have big presses at work but they are not in good order and we are no experts when it comes to pressing up cranks.

    Thanks Chris will give them a call, cant believe it has parted from the crank its had heat applied 3 different pullers and various levers all to no avail. Yesterday i applied small pressure with a tyre lever and it came off the only difference is the garage was very cold.
    Thanks for your help

    Have finally got the 125 to change gear and run ok. Went out on a short run today and came back an hour and a half later smiling. The bike has never run so well i spent a lot of time setting the static timing with a dial guage to find the exact Top Dead Centre. Its a fiddly job setting the points and timing but it now runs better than previously. I also set the carburretor floats with a guage to get them level this has also helped.
    Cant wait to put some miles on this little trail bike !

    Have got the 125 Mot,d and taxed and plan to put some miles on her when moonsoon season ends!. I hope i have finally sorted all the Gremlins these two strokes are very temperamental beasts. Everything needs to be set spot on to run well. You cant beat the crackle of a two stroke though brings back teenage memories though. I can still change gear ok on the right hand side in spite of having left hand change bikes for years. I think the brain holds a memory of riding these and adapts really well.
