Hi there GRiSO Guru's,

Can someone tell me if I remove the rocker cover from a 8V motor can I tell if the motor has been rollerised (especially on the earlier models) just by looking at it.
A picture says a thousand words if someone could show pictures of a rollerised motor and a flat tappet motor with the rocker cover removed, I would much appreciate it.


Many Thanks
Alan

Hi Sidrat have a Mk 4 Lemans, am thinking of a Sport, GRiSO or Norge 8v, one day after kitchen renos, the other half must be comfortable riding on the back.

Strike the GRiSO then, it's a dreadful pillion bike. The Sport 1200 is a far happier thing for two-up. Do be aware though that NO 1200 Sport 8V's were built with rollers, they are all flat tappet bikes unless they have been rollerised regardless of the year on the VIN plate.
