Primairy chain adjuster... Failure!

The bike after the 6-V wekend. Ready for the summer... 

Until my primairy chain adjuster started to fail...

Leaving quite big marks inside the engine

Starting to clean & Flush the engine

The broken primairy chain adjuster...
The primairy chain adjuster lasted about 2.5 years...
Last check i did on the chain was in 2014
And i have an average of 2500 - 3000km a year with the bantam.

6-Volt wekend 2015 with the bantam!

A slightly "Before pic"

The mud from ronse is really a pain in the ass to clean off!

On the last day of the event my HPI iginition had a serious malfunction...

So i had to wait with a Chimay Bleu in Anvaing for help...

Oil & Carb

I cleaned the carburator and changed the floating angle. So it won't leak fuel anymore.
Added fresh oil to the gearbox/clutch and it's allmost ready. Now waiting for parts to arrive from the UK (rexcauntracing.com/)

Fresh oil!

I still love these old advertising!
