Hello again Carl,

I probably ought to check my gearbox oil level too & its a job I can do while I’m waiting for my new primary chain to arrive in the post!

Could I just ask for a bit of clarification; Is the gearbox oil level plug the one on the right hand face of the gearbox towards the front of the ‘box? On my bike it is tucked in tight behind the foot rest so I can’t get it out without moving the footrest. Does that sound about right? 🙄

I gather the bike needs to be on its wheels (and presumably as close to vertical as possible) when checking the level.
