hi, how much are you selling the tensioner and idle pulley for? I'm in need - mine are looking worse for wear and could do with a new set for the journey back up norf from spain.
My bottom pulley also looks like it's cowering slightly.

Have pm'd but not sure if you got it...
I'm back in blighty next week for a few weeks, it's be great to bring back some treats for her :lol:

Cheers.

The one I tested failed in around 600 miles. It's easier to use three single bearings with a washer underneath as a spacer to replace the idler. I will dig out the beating numbers in the morning that I use.

NB Correction , this should read 6000 miles

I checked it last week at service and it is still like brand-new. My bike is used primarily off road in what have been very wet conditions and as a commuter run around.
The quality is superb.
Today, you posted this....

That was meant to read 6000 miles!!! Typing on an iPad is like being Cornish...... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Bovidung vanished off the face of the earth so you can't get his anymore.

The three replacements bearings are 6382RS and you want an M8x15x0.7 washer to sit underneath to provide spacing from the case. All of those parts are available in excellent quality from my good friend George (P.I.Stalker).

Names can be a bit off-putting, I was looking for a contact at a church in Cornwall last year. The name listed was Mr Jim Bastard (no joke)- I never got to meet him but I'm told he's a fine chap.

When I lived in Plymouth in the early 70's there was a guy ran an antique shop there, his name, I jest not, Robin Bastard.
His prices reflected his name...
