    Need to get rid of a little sidewheel slop.

    Basic strip down to get the wheel off looks ok to do. However, how the hell do I get the BSA badge off the center of the wheel without damaging it? No way to work anything under it that I can see, bit of heat? Appears much easier with the Nikko badges.

    Thanks

    I'll warm it up if needs be, it's just that there is hardly any edge to get something under even if i do warm it.

    Dave, it wasn't the central part that unscrews (I know it's a cack handed thread), it was simply the stuck on badge over the screw I wasn't sure about. I hadn't realised that the whole middle part was a complete stuck on "badge" that comes off in one go unlike the Nikko version, not just the "BSA Platinum" wording.

    All done and sorted, no more slop in the wheel. :D

    I had spoken to John who would have done it, but I'd rather do things myself if I can.
