I'm working on a Burman GB (b-52) gearbox for a project,and I was wondering how to find OEM part numbers for the different brands of bikes without buying several parts catalogs.I have been told that Burman has it's own numbers and some manufacturers use their own numbers. Can anyone enlighten me?

Propwash, I just 'Googled' "Burman Gearbox" and found several sites which may be of help to you. (I havent had the time to explore these as yet) (I am looking for a Burman GB (B52) kick starter lever for my Matchless G3LS 1955.) Hope you find what you want. Cheers!! Naozar R. Garda

I have never seen a Burman spares list, but here you have an AJS/Matchless spares list including their gearbox part numbers:

Hope this helps.

Thanks Naozar&Mig 16:It appears to me that these gearbox numbers may be the Burman numbers,since they are different from most AJS numbers.A friend loaned me a Mustang manual(they used the GB for several years) but they used their own numbers.Ariel used these boxes but I don't know about their numbers.Also Naozar: it appears the kick start levers were probably from Burman and fit several bikes the folding one being optional

Without knowing more on this I somehow doubt that would be so...i 'feel' that the manufacturer would have its own kick start lever ....otherwise did Burman have different design of kick starter levers for the different marques their gearboxes were used on? From what source did you get this info? I am not doubting or challenging, just trying to learn more. Anyway, thanks for the tip, in which case I will now definitely have a closer look at the sites I suggested to you through Google, and look to Burman as a source rather than AMC. Thanks again, and any more info will be appreciated. Naozar R. Garda.

Naozar:I've been researching these gearboxes for a while,but I'm not an expert by any means.If AMC bought the gbox clutch and other parts it would probably be cheaper to also buy the k/start arm & shift arm at the same time.Did you look at the link that MiG 16 listed?AJS and Matchless were very similar. On the AJS link the Gearbox parts numbers were mostly like X-7-19 while the cycle and engine parts were like 012345,which most AMC parts seem to be,this makes me think that they are Burman parts(gbox&controls).I also spoke to a retired bike mechanic and he said he had seen lots of different shifters but only the 2 different k/starters

Thanks propwash, good info, and looks like your deductions are correct. Yes I am familiar with the link suggested by MiG16, it has a wealth of info. The milling/knurling on my 1955 G3LS kickstarter has worn out and so I am trying to rebuild/replace it. If you find info suitable for me please do give me a tip-off!!. Cheers!! Naozar.

Naozar: Do you mean the splines where the kick start lever slides onto the shaft at the gearbox or at the top of the lever?I looked at some of the lists on the AJS web site but my connection is so slow I didn't look at many.At least 3 different bikes ,your g3ls, an AJS 16ms,and a AJS twin all use the G-43-2 lever theG-45-1 pin and the 17-3-2 nut.amcclassicspares.com shows a G-43-2 for 25 pounds UK.Maybe you can find a used one .good luck

Hello Propwash, first I really appreciate the interest and help, thankyou. Yes, i do mean the splines where the kick start lever slides onto the shaft at the gearbox. I had earlier seen the spares list and have the spares numbers given by you but on checking with the jampot site i find that unfortunately they do not have this part. Circumstances here have been such that after my earlier postings, i have just had no time to pursue the matter further. Thanks again. Naozar.
