Parked up for a bit longer…

30 Sep

So, it turns out we need to order the bearings, and the earliest they’ll arrive in Sofia is Friday. So by the time we have them sent here and put the bike back together, it’s going to be Monday before we’re on the road. If they don’t arrive ’til Monday, we’ll be here until probably Thursday.

The upside is that it’s not costing us a lot to be here. The bummer is we’re kinda stranded in a small village with nothing around, so we have to rely on other people to give us a ride to the nearest town. We’re getting a taste of what it’s like to be a backpacker!

I guess we’ll need to reassess our timeframe, as there’s no way we’ll be in Croatia this Friday as we’d initially thought.

    Check that the paralever pin (that you screw into the swingarm) doesn’t have a lot of wear on it. Otherwise the new bearings won’t last long. DAMHIK.

      Thanks Steve, I checked and they look OK – but I’ll give them another good inspection tomorrow. Also I’ll be figuring out how to remove the outer races. Disappointed that the bearings didn’t go the distance, as they were new when we started. They have taken a hammering though. -Igor
