she starts with no choke
she idles
she goes like the wind
and handles great
since the valve clearences check and gapped the plugs
her carbs are smooth as silk

will ride her a few more times this year
and will put her Yuasa battery on a new gunson battery conditioner
and trickle charge it over winter £35.00
ebay number over 50% off  361385970521

2 weeks ago the battery let me down but i desulfered it with a gaget
took 2 days to work its magic, pulses a 10k tone to shake the sulfer off the plates
that cost me £15.99 from china and it recovered the battery from 12.5v to now 13.5v
dont throw away your old lead acid batterys guys
Battery Desulfator Desulphator Auto Pulse 12V to 48V Batteries
( 151539119014 )

Will be putting her to bed soon but there might be more sunny days  ;D

In the Shed / Forks done now the petrol leak returns sometimes
« on: July 01, 2017, 04:57:38 pm »
Had this problem last year, the two left carbs leak gallons of petrol I say gallons because it seems enough to leak from the plastic T piece between the left carbs only.bike runs great and idles at 1100 so ballanced right.
needle kits fitted
new petrol pipe fitted
new original petrol pump from my brother in the usa fitted
O rings fitted to T piece but think not big enough to seal under 15psi pressure ( 1 Atmosphere ) once carbs are full.

Does this sound correct if so carbs off again before Mot  Dam Carple tunnel more pain coming


Could this be the culprit they look small and not wide enough,does dave silver have the right ones ?

gave up getting her on the road this year due to carpel tunnel in my hands and hurting
my foot building a 17 foot and 13 foot wooden garage so my recording studios can make money next year
but can still work on the recording room cos its got its roof and shiplap on the outside.
looking forward to next year
**** what a hard year its been
then to seal the deal my HD 56" computer tv JVC tele bulb popped :)

Just 1" left its a squeeze I measured it twice

Safe and sound
