    Can anyone identify this spacer?

    I recently bought a bike that had been stripped by the previous keeper so am working to rebuild the bike.
    In the box of engine bits I found this:


    Looking at the exploded diagrams on speedway it looks like a spacer that goes near the crank and should be one of two? I certainly only have 1 in my box.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Tony

    Yes they are, or it is should be 2 I think shims for the bearing on the crank for axial clearance,Shims.on the magneto side.

    Thanks, spot on. You measure the crank main bearing to opposing crank half with a vernier and the measurement dictates 1 or 2 shims needed

    Yes having the right bearings certainly helps grr. Plus ignore what the manual says about installation of the gearbox input/output shafts if you go to YouTube and type rs125 gearbox there is an Australian fella who explains a really neat way of doing it much easier.
