Re: BSA A65L Final Drive Chain

Pick a brand; RK,Tsubaki,Diamond and others all produce fine chains more than capable for your application.

You will need a 530 chain, as others stated, there is not room for 'O' ring, so it'll...

Re: 1968 triumph help

There are two issues that I am very surprised no one mentioned here:

Carb syncronisation, and valve clearance. Both will affect how quickly the revs fall. Set both to spec, and let us know.

Re: What gauge wire - Batt to key

That chart is a bit pessimistic. I see 18 ga recommended from 5 amps to 40 amps. And my experience with late model stuff sees a lot of lighter gauge wire being used.

Re: What gauge wire - Batt to key

10 ga is my instant thought. Then I wondered: what do you have on that Sporty that needs a 30 amp fuse??

Do a current draw, add 10-20%, and use that as your main fuse. Or do current draws on each...

Re: Best way to saddle bag remove rivets

If those are the clips I am thinking of, do NOT try to remove them intact. Break them off the tits. Buy new ones from numerous aftermarket sources, or use moulding tape.

Re: CB750 Forks on a BSA?

I put CL77 forks on a '70 Triumph. Used the Triumph trees, bored out to the Honda size, with a lip on the top tree, so the fork was trapped by the top nut/tree. Custom axle made, too. Worked a treat,...

Re: stupid question for oil pump?

This is a case where it is far better to read the factory manual before taking the advice of random strangers on the internet.

The function of the spring is to apply pressure on the ball to avoid...

Re: Making Brass shift knobs

Rode one years ago. Guy still has it (AFAIK), still hooked to a sidecar.

Anyway. It impressed me with it's torque output, seemingly endless supply of torque, and still kinda revvy.

Re: That's it I'm building one

Take heart (medicine).

The "wheels sticking out of the fenders by 6" or so" trend DID end.

Re: Spark plugs with a mind of their own

When I was running older Triumphs regularly, I always had problems if I'd use Champion plugs.

Re: Headlight bulb question.

Did I mention you will need a relay?? And if your lamp is plastic, a fire extinguisher will be handy, too.

Heated gear is key, really. Heated grips and a heated seat will take the chill out of just about any temp.
