The Motobrick Workshop / LaDini Tail section

Hi all,

The Ladini K11 was the reason for me buying this bike.

I have been planning to make a similar curved tail from fiberglass and somone at work told me today that this tail was one you can get off the shelf...
I havent seen one like it at all, ever... and i am browsing a lot.

Anyone seen anything like it for sale?

Even if there was i think id rather make it.

Best regards

Changed the brakelines as the old ones were from '92. The new are reinforced from Motobins.
Cleaned out the rear caliber since the rear brake was dragging a bit and the inner brakepad was worn to about 1 mm. Changed pads.
Has my joy trying to get the air bubbles out of the ABS and the brakelines.
Cleaned out the FD splines and gave them new Guard Dog Moly.
Changed oil and filter.
Wash and polish and i'm ready for this years 10kkm

brief walk around with explanation of its nicks and whatnot.

starts and rides (though in vid you'll see it needs more than a 20min charge) loose exhaust makes it louder than a brick should be but it grew on me.  rough idle likely crank case breather hose

new pads and tires, also replaced the inside the tank fuel filter (fun!)

moving and have another bike I ride daily, would rather magically find the time to wrench on this myself but if someone out there could give it the attention it deserves I could tell myself I will get another one some day.

sigh. :)

When I got my K this winter, the throttle wouldn't return.  After checking a few things, I remembered it had been dropped on the right side by a previous owner.  Hmm, maybe the grip hit the ground and was jammed up against the switch housing when it hit.
Yep, that was it.  It was jammed hard against it.  Pulling it out a little gave it some clearance and it worked fine.

Thanks for the warm welcome and the info Laitch  :wave:

The bike got delivered this morning with a flat battery and an empty fuel tank. Yay.

It is actually metallic pine green (683) and came with a sheepskin seat cover and seat rain cover, headlight protector, touch up paint kit,full tool roll and a factory flat tyre kit.

The radio turns on but i suspect i need a code to access the features as i can't change station or AM/FM.

I will add pics when i can get it out of the garage to the top of the driveway .

The Motobrick Workshop / Re: Rear main seal tool

Yes there was oil leaking from the transmission but as you say that could just have been from how it was sitting after taking it off.  I started this whole process because the bike was 'marking her territory' quite a lot and there was oil all over the belly pan and the bottom of the engine.  So something somewhere is leaking and it is just a matter of working out what. I thought/hoped it was the rear main seal because that might have helped to explain part of the excessive oil usage.

You have to take that metal washer out first to see the seal wiper and make that assessment. 

BTW, I agree with Scott that the pool of oil under the transmission could have come from the push rod area where the clutch boot should sit if the transmission was allowed to sit on the centre stand mounting legs or if it lay facing downwards.

The seal that is in there is metallic as far as I can see. 

On the whole I think you are right and that since I have come this far I may as well change it out.
