5 speed Maxi - 3rd gear gone

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just came back from taking the Elite on a run and lost 3rd gear - hobbled home in 1,2 & 4th gears.

Has anyone else lost 3rd gear in their Maxi based box?

If so, was it just a sync (baulk) ring required for repair, or more, such as 3/4 hub and sleeve or (heaven forbid) worse still ie. gear clusters and shafts etc?

Any experiences would be helpful.

Cheers,

Andrew

Or source individual components and rebuild accodingly.

Decisions, decisions.
