Rubber coupling on rear wheel was created by whitey
Hi everyone
Checked out the bikes drive chain and noticed when I move the chain forward, there is about 10 to 15mm play on the forward movement. Then concerned, I checked out the service manual, it does not tell you how much play there should be. Only that if you stripped out the rear wheel, you should look for excessive wear. Any informative comments would really be helpful.
Is this rubber part readily available and how expensive is it?

Cheers

Hi Dieseldawie,

Thanks, how much did you pay for the cush drive at the dealers?

Cheers
