Re: shovelhead clutch

Agree on the shell retainer (ram jet).

A note for those worried about five vs three stud clutch hubs. . .

Most of the ram jet kits i've seen are cut for three stud hubs. If this is what you...

Re: shovelhead clutch

Some more to check . . .

If the steels are polished to a mirror finish and have oil on them, they are likely hydraulic locking to the frictions and not releasing cleanly when clutch is thrown out....

Re: Hydra Glide Front End

You have to force the damper unit (the "cup shape bushing") up into the fork tube to install the clip.

See the two oil holes at the end of the damper rod? You can use a long piece of wire through...

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.

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

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.
