Unfortunately there's no way for me to attend one of these. Would be very interested as people around here (where I live) don't seem to know this bike.
Can you please tell me what where you doing in this picture below? Is that the shift linkage pivot? Were you greasing it? Was it giving problems? I ask because I'm almost sure I'm getting a knock from that area when I let go of the clutch and I've seen the shift linkage being addressed in a video as a particular source of knocking when engaging gears.
Also, is it really that hard to put the boot back? I'm really interested in doing the greasing myself but I've heard putting the boot back is a pain.
