|Fixing a broken odometer by Bart
While servicing my CJ750 M1 after 3000km of holiday travel, I needed to replace a 6V bulb inside the headlight.
I took out the reflector unit and two small parts fell out... The bearing cap and the horizontal odometer gear-axle!
A big hole in the odometer quickly revealed the original position of these two parts. The meter must have stopped counting on the last kilometers driving home.
So, I decided to have a good look and see if the odometer could be put into service again. Yes! It's built really clever and it can be serviced. But, due to sloppy assembly in some factory, the bearing cap sits loose in the housing. Much to our delight, we do not see such sub-standard assembly quality very often in our Chinese bikes... (-;
