    Thanks Howard

    When I suggested that you to buy 2 brackets and send me one, it was more in jest than a serious request. But thanks for trying.

    If you want to buy a bracket, they appear to be available here: https://shop.benelli.parts/en/produc...zione-motore-3
    But at 25 Euro + postage, I reckon I'll be making my own.

    Cheers,
    Cam

    Hi Cam,
    no worries, for the sake of a couple of quid I’d have bought two anyway.
    having seen your latest post I think at that price I’ll be fabbing my own as well.
    Thanks for the bigger blow up as I think my sump guard is fitted wrongly and touching the exhausts.
    now I can check out the fixing brackets on this item too.
    cheers, happy biking.
    Howard

    G'day Howard

    I finally got around to making a bracket for the left side cover I bought a few weeks ago. It's pretty much a copy of the factory part that's shown in the parts book.

    I made it out of a chunk of 20g (0.9mm) gal steel sheet that I had lying around. It's OK, but perhaps a wee bit flimsy. 16g (1.6mm) would be better, but I couldn't find any in my off-cuts bin.

    In case you haven't done yours yet, I've attached a drawing of the flattened shape you need to cut out (before it's bent into shape). I printed it out full size and pasted it onto the piece of plate as a template to cut around. Bent it into shape and welded a captive nut on the back for the cover bolt. I looks a bit crap, but you cant see it with the cover on.

    Cheers,
    Cam

    Cam, you're a star.
    Thanks very much, that's excellent.
    I'll send you a pic of mine when I do it.

    TRE k question

    Hi Cam,
    Everybody has a stupid question in them,.......and here's mine.
    Hoping you can advise.
    I'm changing the chain and sprockets on my 899 TRE K.
    Previous owner has fitted rear axle bobbins and I have purchased a rear paddock stand to make life easier for myself.
    Looking at the set up I’m struggling to see the logic of what I need to do.

    How do I remove the rear axle pin, to take the wheel out, when the bobbins are resting on the paddock stand which holds the whole thing up ?

    I'll bet the answer is simple, but for the life of me I can't see how to do it. What am I missing ? (apart from common sense)

    Guidance much appreciated.

    Howard

    I had to get a stand that fitted under the swing arm in front of the wheel spindle/clamp adjuster.
    There are special adapters on the evotech site so you can use bobbins and adjust the chain ect at the same time .
    Edit ... Part required possibly....

    Rick, many thanks for your reply. Out there now working on it.
    since writing this earlier I came to the conclusion it was impossible to remove a part that was suspending the bike in the first place.
    I watched a YouTube vid on a similar Kawasaki wheel removal.
    As you suggest, it needs to be suspended in a different place from the axle centre line.
    So I’ve lowered the bike from the paddock stand onto two axle stands sited just in front of the rear axle line.
    Everything now loosened ready to go but one NEW hitch now. The R&G bobbins that bolt into, and cover the eccentrics, don't want to come off. Undo with 10mm socket and they just keep spinning and spinning. Any suggestions ??
    I see you're in Brynamman. I'm in Barry, so not so far away.
    Who would be our nearest Benelli (or Benelli able) dealer ?
    Cheers for any advice.
    Howard

    Hi Howard,
    I'm pretty sure you'll need to hold both sides when undoing the bolts /nuts .

    Thanks again,
    Howard

    Howard , I think our nearest dealer is in Hereford ..... However I'm sure Bevan motorcycles may do the tricky stuff if your not keen yourself .
    I do all my servicing Ect as I'm kind of out of the way and can't book time off ahead to use bike shops 😲👍
