    Hopefully No more Diff Oil Leak ! It turned out the new Parts were not fitted correctly, something to do with the position of the Anti Braking Cog being 30mm out on the shaft ? Anyway Fingers...

    Hi Surfer01,

    Can you remember the area or part that was at fault with your two Surfs ?

    I am struggling to find the cause of this shaking coming from the front wheels / suspension / steering.

    The Engine is a ticking timebomb ? How So ? My 1998 Surf has only done 120,000 miles.

    Thanks tashtego9. I will get all these parts ordered. The Bolts will probably need sawing off. Are the Bushes something I can remove myself or are the Bushes a Nightmare to remove ?
