Re: What did you do Today

1 hr 10mins to fully to remove the alarm & do a nice neat job patching up the loom. Bike runs fine now 8-) I came to the conclusion that alarms are more trouble than they are worth. The Meta 357 I fitted to the SV1000S also failed and you could not start the bike, luckily this was on the drive not ...

Re: Some Tricycles are better than others.

That is far more appealing than a Reliant engined/stamped plate contraption. I think it's well cool :D

Re: Not starting, no "wet finger tip" ;-)

If fuel is getting to the carb I would suspect a sticking float needle. Try tapping the side of the carb with the handle of a screw driver to see if it jars loose. Otherwise remove the float bowl and clean the float needle.

Re: Bigger 3TA?

Why not just fit a set of 500cc pistons/barrels.

Re: Seeley Honda 750

Hello Dave, Yes, I have caught Mr. Cole and the Phil Read replica episodes. His presentation style annoys me too :D , but as he sold 10 bikes and borrowed to get himself a Brough Superior I guess he is as genuine a bike nut as most of us lol. If his valuation of the PRR (fully restored) is £15k that...

Re: Seeley Honda 750

The weather was glorious and we had a great time, Gez (rider/journo) and Tim (photographer) were bot...

Re: Suzuki TS400 crankcase screws

Hello Martyn,

I don't think you will need an impact drive if you are now using socket head screws. I use "feel", but I have stripped a few M6 case screws in the past so now have an idea of how far to go :lol: . About 6 - 8 lbs/ft or 10Nm should do it.

Re: Seeley Honda 750

I had my first go at carb synchronisation on a 4 pot lump. It turned out to be a fairly easy process with the appropriate kit. Of course I lost two of the washers when I first undid the vacuum blanking screws and now have to file a 4mm washer out to 5mm so I get a good seal, but that's about par for...
