PS. if you paid £80 you were ripped off as relining by Villiers only costs about £18/pair.

Thanks HM. Ill let NLM know then :? Though I was talking about a complete set of new shoes/springs as opposed to a reline which I know wouldve cost much less. As it was, I didnt want to start posting bits all over the place. As i have the original shoes Ill be able to get them relined should I wish at some point.
Choosing not to go down the cheaper or a different route doesnt necessarily mean that I was ripped off. If I couldve bought a complete new set of 3 genuine shoes for 20 quid, then you may have a point :wink:

If you buy new Sureflex starter shoes, you'll get the later style laminated steel type with the reinforcing web.

The extra weight means they're thrown out against the drum harder.

It certainly sounds very healthy, Paul. It spins the mill like a good un :D
I didnt need to replace the worm gear either - though I did buy one to hang on to as a 'just in case'. :wink:

I hadn’t noticed that this thread had gone on so far. My starter clutch seems to have settled down again for no obvious reason, so at the moment I am ignoring it! I used the Morini forthe Moto Piston Rally again this year and although it did slip briefly a few times, it never failed to start the bike, so I’ve learned to live with it. I have made a note of the link to those heavier starter shoes recommended by Paul though!

As a brief off-topic comment, the Morini 500 has to be just about the ideal bike for the Piston rally - such a lot of fun!
