Re: Norton or how to not behave...

I like building, fixing, and riding motorcycles.

When I can't be on them, I like to think about them and talk about them.

I have no dog in the fight on this place. I love it and have derived...

Re: Motorcycle VIN inspections

I had three CHP inspections when I moved to California (Bay Area) four years ago.

Some points to consider:

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Hmm. I had posted about oil pumps but can't find it now . . .

If you can, replaced this pump with a later model "D" or "DD" pump (as identified by stamp on body/nose). These are doweled to ensure...

Re: SU Eliminater2 carb

Rivera's Eliminator II is not supposed to run ANY oil in the damper.

I just looked for my instruction sheet but couldn't find it. I'm certain the instructions that came with min said no oil.

Re: A properly tuned stock Panhead.......

It has been said that I'm a man of extremes and like to visit the ledge on both sides.

I wouldn't refute if given the chance.

Re: A properly tuned stock Panhead.......

No bullshit here.

Have owned a particular '64 panhead (totally stock) that will start within three kicks even after sitting for half a year.

I drew some oil passage ways on your pic.

Yellow lines are drilled passages.

You can see the rear feed fitting entering the head and leading to the center boss for the intake rocker arm. That...

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Those look like welch plugs to me. Look at the rocker arm feed bore. It's directly in-line with one of the plugs.

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Looks like you're doing it right! Nice work.

Are you using the steel cup/washer that guards the shim(s) from rubbing on the case? I think the .005" shim wouldn't last long otherwise. Are these the...

Re: A properly tuned stock Panhead.......

I have a stock 74" panhead.

When I was riding it daily, it was one kick to prime and one to start.

Now, after it sits for a months on end, it takes two or three primes, then two or three to...

Re: Bike stalling at developing and idle sometimes?

If that's a kick-only bike, you're going to need someone with the programming kit to make setting change.

Setting is called DeadRevs and it dictates how many times the engine rotates with power...

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

I believe it turned out to be a rod bolt failure. I had already done the sludge trap.

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

I'm with Goldy.

Engine rebuild is a must or all your efforts may turn out to be in vain.

You can do most of it yourself guided by reference materials online and help in forums such as this.

Re: Changing fork oil on my 68.. what are these bits??

Good choice giving those forks some love if they were sticking.

To my thinking, there is little chance of fixing the sticking just by cleaning up and reinstalling the damper components (shown in...
