Removed rockerbox today and found one exhaust pushrod a little chewed at top end.

It seems this rod is about 1/8th inch longer than the other.

Are the rods hollow?

If solid, could a little be taken off the long one, as it seems its extra length is pushing the rocker higher and the outside ball cup is chewing it.

I did not pick this up on first assembly and this bike was a basket case, so who knows where or what the rods came from.

Are there different length pushrods from different years?

Pretty sure they are hollow with inserts at each end. I don't know how you would go removing inserts and shortening rod.
All A10 pushrod sets are the same length, 2 long & 2 short. A7 are obviously shorter.
The long stroke A7 used a completely different type.

Thanks Trev.

I put it back together as I have a rally next week.

But they seemed hollow by the light weight.

The exhaust long ones look one piece but if they are hollow they can't be.

Can you measure a long one and post measurement.
