Hi

On the gear changer bracket where should the M5 hole be for the grub screw to retain the shaft.

Just put mine in the other day and it is on the right hand side under where the shaft goes into the gear change bracket i am sure there is a iso in the instructions? if you need any pictures of certain set up just ask.

There is no hole shown on the iso and mine is missing on the bracket so need to drill one.

I wonder how they managed to leave out the hole maybe a one off!
Here is a picture of the grub screw although the pictures to very good it will give you an idea of what i was saying.

Hi Guys,

Looks like we've made a cock up. The original batch were a fabrication which we changed to a lost wax casting to improve the appearance. In the process of the design change for the casting it looks like the M5 thread to lock the shaft with a grub screw was missed.

The following options are available:

1. Return the part and we will drill and tap it.
2. Drill and tap a hole to lock the shaft in place. (M4 or M5 or there equivalent will be fine)
3. Instead of tapping and locking with a grub screw. Loctite the shaft in position with a bearing grade loctite.

Sorry for the error.
