Title: Dragonfly spacers
Post by: cbranni on 08 Sep 2019 at 08:38
Good morning all,

Could some kind member confirm to me which side of the engine the longer of the two front engine bolt spacers fit and should the front of the engine fit central in the frame?

Kind regards Colin

Hi cbranni,
  Sitting on bike, long spacer fits on left.  You will find that if you just nip the through bolt up, it will bring the gear box into line, so that you can fit the gearbox end adjustable spacers without any problem.

Cheers, Dave

ps.....just a thought, don't forget to put the centre stand spring clip in place (as I did)  before you fit the footrest/rear engine and gearbox shaft and build everything up.  It gets quite awkward otherwise.
Regards, Dave.
