Re: Shovel/Evo parts interchangability

Thanks a lot guys! Just the info I needed. Reason for asking is I got a real cheap (like dirt cheap) low mileage Evo engine, and didn't know if I should resell it or use it to restore my shovel. My...

Hi all. Just a couple of questions that a lot of you probably find stupid, but that I would greatly appreciate an answer to.
will a ca 1987 Evo camcover (hognose) fit on a shovelhead (it's a 79, so...

Re: Rigid Gilera Racer - #2 project

Hi PT. Glad you took it the way it was meant, not like I was trying to be an ass:)
I can see you definitely know how to measure trail:). The trail is what you've got at the blue marking in the...

Re: BMW misfire

Ratso: can the carbs be switched around, to see if the problem moves to the other cylinder?
I don't think it's a carb problem, as a bad diaphragm probably would give consistent misfires, but...

Re: Rigid Gilera Racer - #2 project

It looks great, and I'm looking forward to following your build, BUT (and I hate saying this) you got the trail thing messed up. Longer lower rockers gives you less, not more trail. Sure the stance...

Re: Piston help needed!

HRC and Jaws, thanks for chiming in.
Dan r, great info thanks a lot. 1,1875 being the same as 1-3/16" shows me my calculation was spot on.
Choosing between a 1200 Sportster, a 4-5-8" stroke EVO or...

Re: Piston help needed!

Fun trivia: I believe the highest recorded speed ever for a sidevalve M model BSA, was about 108 MPH, at Bonneville, running N2O. I've heard he didn't make the return run due to blowing the engine...

Re: Piston help needed!

John: thanks for the pin size measure btw. Believe the BSA is 5/8. Anyway there's plenty of meat in the small end of the conrod, so absolutely no worries here.

Re: Piston help needed!

Dave B: thanks! No loss of compression with a plate. The Evo piston will stick1/8 out of the cylinder, so a 1/8" plate will just keep the piston from banging into the head. Maybe a stroker plate is...

Am in the process of building a "new" engine from scratch for my BSA M21.

Yes he does almost everything himself, machinework anyway. I seriously doubt he'll join here. He's in his mid 70ies and probably doesn't speak English. Nice thought though, I'll send him a message to...

Re: speedway engines in road bikes

You're welcome:). Well, I don't get parts. I had 2 engines and (regrettably) sold one. The other one I took apart and put the crank and head on a 1946 Royal Enfield some 10 years ago. So far I've...

Re: BSA unit single oil line diagram?

The inner tube (left on the engine) sucks, the outer returns to the tank. Let me know if you need a picture, and I'll find one for you:)
