Week : 17-08-2013
Next week battery got recharged but since all cable was all pulled out while checking, it took a helluva lot of time for the workshop guy to set things back . Finally with all week follow up with him by next Saturday bike got set out . Ha.. feeling high i took Black D for a test drive. After two three kilometer i heard a strange sound from back , slowed the bike down and again slowly raced throttle , to my dismay
I heard something snap with a clunk sound , stopped bike then itself.. Bike Chain has been snapped . Night time there no nearby open workshop. Again back to square one , looks like trip needs to postponed again
I called the workshop guy , luckily he came with his Yamaha. We planned to push bullet using his bike back to my home. So workshop guy pushed bullet with his one leg and me guided on it back to home. I checked sprocket closely while reaching home. To my surprise most of the bullet chain sprocket teeth was broken
. So as it turned out i was really lucky to get chain broken near my home rather than in long distance place. So in final need to change chain and sprocket. Since rear sprocket is being changed i told workshop guy to change front sprocket also. Little i knew that changing front sprocket in Bullet was a lot of time consuming job as we need to remove all clutch assembly , alternator. When everything is removed and clutch case is removed only we can change the sprocket and chain.
Chain and sprocket rate came around 1600. After continuous following at the last he started working on dis assembling clutch assembly.
Had to wait for another day to start fitting back clutch assembly. Guess once again the time was not rite, the clutch cover screw threading was not seating in properly. He said the whole case is coming out even if screwed tightly. No idea whether its his tools problem that thread has gone or this problem was there earlier. So bike needs to goto engineering shop to re thread the hole . By luck he said no need to remove engine we can push and rode bike using other other bike and come back. So Saturday morning i follow up him and did the threading and bike was ready for final assembling from 6:00 PM on wards. Phew that was a long wait.
I told him i will also join for clutch cover re-assembling so he said we can start by 8:00 PM. So as scheduled he started working on bike around 8:30 PM. It was a learning experience for me also with clutch real working, alternator working, clutch adjustment. All clutch plate where in good condition so there was no need to replace it. So fitted clutch inner cover, clutch plates, magnet . I think again the time was not right as n while fitting the Alternator one bolt went missing. His helping guy while washing seems like misplaced it.
Since its a unique bolt we can’t set any other bolt. We searched the workshop for sometime but still couldn't retrieve.Looks like that weekend also trip will not tour won’t workout , without setting alternator correctly we cannot set magnet rotation correctly and its AC. So at 10 30 PM with no other option we shifted our final clutch cover assembling to next week along with my trip
