Valve lifter cable for 350 cc Lightweight

Postby Roderick » Sun Apr 16, 2017 12:13 pm

I need a valve lifter cable (Part Nos. 026254 for the cable plus 011373 for the Nut/lock/adjuster) for the G5 I’ve nearly finished. The bike never had even an old one with it so I have nothing to measure.

JAMPOT Spares don’t seem to carry a valve lifter cable for this model nor anyone else either.

I wonder if LWT 350 cable is sufficiently similar to the valve lifter cable also fitted on the rocker cover on the Heavyweight singles that I could adapt the latter to use on the G5?

Can't you just bung up the cable hole and then get some kickstart training from the Panther Owners' Club? ;)

It's a thought! The Panther Club do meet nearby in the Commercial PH on Sunday mornings. Maybe they run kickstarting courses. The little 1/2 compression lever on their timing cases is their salvation, however.

Hi Rod the cables for the HW & LW are the same its just the year that makes the differance which is the style of end fitting into the lever. My 61 G3 & 59 G5 are identical.

If you get the wrong one i am sure Gary in the stores will swap it for you.
