This model has (what RE referred to as) a "floating bush" big end and caged roller mains.
Must admit I've never seen it criticised...what's allegedly wrong with it?

Sorry, no luck there either! When Brinnicks the locksmiths opened the case I found maker's labels in German but no further identification.

Julieo, you need this site:  I'm surprised you haven't found it already. Absolutely everything an M20 owner could want. Check the Technical Section for wheel building information, good dimensioned diagram and details of spoke lengths etc. Check the Forum page for the most knowledgable group of enthusiasts on all WD motorcycle subjects as well!
REgards, Mark

If its the kind I think it is, with 3 little gizmos expanding inside the filler neck, you will find that the neck is stretched over the years, I have the same problem with pie crust fillers on AMC.

Make a gasket out of soft leather if poss or make up some kind of baffle.

I did once have an idea for an insert and threaded filler, but it was beyond my skills to finish it. Now I never fill past the critical mark.
Not sure what the answer to this is. On my RGS the tank cap has always been incontinent. I have tried various different materials to seal it. It originally had a rubber seal. So far I have found nothing which works very well. I have just learned to live with it. I just try to avoid sharp braking and bumps when the tank is brim full.
