Re: re-corking clutch

Hi Frank, Took the discs down to about 5.2mm average and that has done the trick!
Thanks
Chris

Re: re-corking clutch

Hi Frank, Thanks once again, you confirmed what I wondered. Perhaps the 7mm refers to the three plate 250? I'm having the back of the clutch basket machined, and the kickstarter rachet bushed to suit in the hope I can start the bike again! I bought (rather foolishly in hindsight) a IZH 49/56 transmi...

re-corking clutch

Hi all, just re-corked my clutch and I made my own corks to precisely 7mm, all 94 of them! as specified in the parts list, so the four friction plates add up to 28mm exactly. problem now is the combined friction plates and clutch steel plates add uo to 35mm, and the clutch basket is only 30mm deep (...

Re: carburetion problems

are you sure it's the correct carburettor? My 1939 NZ350 has an Amal-Fischer M76-426 fitted.

Re: 350NZ kickstarter

Hi Andy, sadly not fixed the kickstarter yet, my jeep has taken priority of late (driving it at the Goodwood Revival tomorrow). However, I fully intend to take my bike to the Brooklands Military Vehicles Day on 17th November. Also, my mate is building a sidecar for his Matchless G3 and we are talkin...

Re: 350NZ kickstarter

My primary chain has 20mm play, the manual states replace the chain if more than 15 mm of play. Can anyone recommend a good source of supply for new chain?
Thanks Chris

Re: 350NZ kickstarter

Thanks for the reminder about the LH thread :D

I hope to find time to remove the clutch this week and will indeed check the starter sprocket.

all best, Chris

Re: 350NZ kickstarter

Hi Frank, thank you for your valuable advice again! I've had a look at the 'Russian' segment on eBay, judging by the photos it is just a rough cast copy, so I will try to rebuild my original segment as you suggest. By the way, is the IZH 350 the Soviet DKW copy after they took the factory to Russia ...

Does anyone have a kickstarter segment part number 122228-0?

350NZ kickstarter

My kick starter has been 'jumping' and 'jamming', so recently I have to jump start the bike, not easy with a sidecar! Took the casing off today and notice the first two teeth on the segment are broken. Can the segment be reversed, or will I have to replace the whole thing? thanks, Chris broken teeth...

Sidecars

Hi all, my apologies for lack of contact, playing with my jeep in 2017! But I have been researching my 1939 350NZ and discovered the sidecar is a 1938 Simard Standard 13. Simard were a French manufacturer based in Lyon. So I wonder who joined a 1939 German motorcycle with a 1938 French sidecar? My r...

Motorcycle and sidecar markings

Happy New Year to all! Regret did very little to my DKW in 2017 as I was using my jeep! 2018 will be the year of the bike! Two items of interest: I have discovered after much research the sidecar on my 1939 350NZ is a 1938 Simard, manufactured in Lyon, France. I wonder how a German motorcycle got a ...
