Re: Bastard Speed Twin build

Instead of chancing welding on the crank, clean up the OD then cut a new keyway in another place.

Re: Bastard Speed Twin build

I can't help with first hand knowledge of or pictures of your bike. But like any return spring, the eye of the spring goes in the direction of the gear moving to the parked position. The spring...

Re: Musings on the SU carb

As another thought you can make a simple plate adapter with a butterfly to mount between the carb and air cleaner. 3/8'' or 1/2'' thick is all it would need to be. Pirate a butterfly at or slightly...

Re: Musings on the SU carb

Have you leaned the bike far enough to get the gas coming out of the over flow. Then throttle closed to do prime kicks. As you say your bike may not respond to this, but be assured many do.

Re: Musings on the SU carb

Tickler or lean is about raising the fuel level in the float bowl. The result of which is the mixture enrichens.
to add: Fuel coming out of a over flow when leaned over, is how you know it is doing...

Re: 1977 ironhead battery??

Battery, Group Size B16-B, 260 CCA I would be in the lead acid conventional battery camp. So in your case make a tray to fit. Group B16 have been a OEM battery back to 1971 FX Superglide.

Re: Musings on the SU carb

Anything that raises fuel level in bowl enrichens the mixture. Your idle circuit with the throttle closed draws more fuel. Also the tipping till fuel over flows gives you the most you can get in the...

Re: Musings on the SU carb

You can lean the bike to the right to get a rich condition, then upright and start it. Not a tickler pushing the float down, but gets more gas in the float bowl and that enrichens the mixture.

Re: Shovel 74" or more? Seeking sound advice!

What parts do you have? How much money to spend? Boring .020 74'' cylinders to 80'' is a waste. '87 evo cranks were 3 piece and shook the cast in bearing support loose in the left case. In '89 the...

Re: 74 XLCH-1000 chopper

Making mistakes are fine. Letting him continue when you could correct him, is a disservice to him and allows others to think poorly of him. This isn't to take him to task, but to get him aside and...

Re: Have I missed something here .. 51 Panhead clutch nut

Have you measured the thickness of the old and new sprockets? Likely a difference with the new being thicker, and running that after market seal nut isn't helping.

Re: Build a 84" shovel.

If you have a complete 74 inch the standard 80 inch pistons will work they are .060 o/s of a 74. That would be a real waste of stock 74 cylinders that may likely clean up at a smaller oversize. Back...
