If you are undertaking a complete engine rebuild or if at some time you may find the need to undertake a replacement of the gear selector if you do then this is how it is done;
The pictures are of a 3 speed model and the engine is on a bench stand. However you can just as easily do this with the engine on the scooter.
You will need a flat head screw driver and a socket set. If replacing the gasket (which is advisable) you will also need a new gasket.
Step 1 Preliminary Matters
The first step is make sure that the scooter is in nuetral and that it is firmly standing. Remove the flywheel cover and the gear selector cover as shown in the photo. You will see that this engine is on a bench stand but you can just as easily do this while the moor remains on the scooter.
Step 2 Release the Gear Cables
By removing the gear selector cover you will see the two gear selector cables. If your not going to replace the cables then make sure that you mark the way that they go back. If you get it wrong your gears will not select the gears as required.
Step 3 Remove the Gear Selector
Undo the two nuts that holds the gear selector to the case. This will loosen the gear selector. Hold onto the gear selector with one hand and with the other hand turn the flywheel whiling pulling on the gear selector. You will feel the gear selector pull away as in the photo.
Step 4 Replace the Gear Selector
Step 5 Replace the Gasket
Step 6 Fit the New Gear Selector
Final Step - Put it Back Together
Replace the cables and flywheel cover and while your at it replace the gear selector cover with a new stainless steel one.
Excerpt: If you are undertaking a complete engine rebuild or if at some time you may find the need to undertake a replacement of the gear selector if you do then this is how it is done.
