    Best of luck getting shot of that matey. I *do* hope all is well with the
    gbox too, as spares will be a 'challenge' to come by.
    I had the incredible misfortune to have to strip and repair one a good few
    years ago without the genuine Honda manual.
    Not nice at all. Output shaft bearing had gone. Thank God it wasn't the
    gearbox or torque converter.
    Interesting design from a technical standpoint, but as with the 900 version
    and the 400AT Dream/Superdream, a solution to a problem that doesn't exist,
    much like the auto version of my trike engine, the Guzzi 1000 Convert.

  4. I knew a chap once who'd have had one. Had an artificial leg from the knee
    down, which wouldn't have allowed for foot-operated gearchange.

    first off: does it really matter where I post
    second: I wasn't asking any question and didn't get any answers
    thirdly: the only comments I got seemed to be snide rather than '(mostly)
    finally: I feel that I was quite polite in my original posting and strangely
    expected to get similar replies (if I got any replies at all as it wasn't
    the kind of posting that needed any) unfortunately that was obviously not
    the case, I guess it has been that long since I used a newsgroup that I
    forgot why I stopped in the first place but thank you for reminding me

    Well it does because it makes it very much easier for everyone to follow
    the thread of the conversation. It is polite to do so (even if some of
    the requests to comply may be thought of as less than polite ;). I am
    sure it is in the FAQ, a link to which is posted on this NG most weeks.
    Give it time - not everyone who may have an interest in replying will
    have yet read your post. If you kick up a fuss already, perhaps people
    won't feel like engaging in a 'conversation' with you.
    There is a certain 'style' that characterises many of the regulars in
    this NG. Don't fight it. You will get as much as help as people are
    able/inclined to give....

    Which bit was snide ?

    Yeah, that's a popular reason for buying autos. These days, I suppose,
    you could fit an air shifter and a bar-mounted button changer, though
    I'm boggling at the sort of air shifter that could cope with a Guzzi
    gearchange. I have a mental vision of a cylinder with a six-inch
    calibre, possibly converted from a naval gun, and running on 2000psi

    Yeah, but it still wouldn't be able to achieve *that* pause to get a
    clean up-shift
