Place a broom handle or whatever you have up thru the axle first. Instead of flying off (usually aimed at your head or arm) it just spins on the handle. The head of the broom stops it going any further...and maybe a well-placed shop towel. It's amazing how far that thing will fly!
Very impressive!Yes, original motor I've owned from new and with zero work other than valve checks, replace plugs and TB balance every so often. I change oil - Motul 300V - and filter every 10K km and have never had to add oil between changes. Stonking motors these 1050's. Has never stranded me though I have replaced 3 stators.
More than I've been able to manage, so yes.Let's see, I cleaned, oiled and adjusted the chain! Impressive eh?
