The Star and Garter / Stolen bikes
« on: 11 September, 2017, 12:34:23 »
I know there is a lot of concern just lately about bikes that have been stolen and most of them are finishing up abroad, or so I am led to beleive, now, my question is what type of check is made at the ports and outlets of the country is there. I really do not think there is any, so your bike could be winging its way to Poland, Rumania or anywhere where there is no checks, once there, the bike is stored for a while before re- registering.
I really think that there should be more checks at the docks etc to see what is leaving this country.

Singles / B25 starting problem
« on: 11 September, 2017, 11:55:45 »
I have a recently aquired B25 with Boyer Bransden ignition, I have had it running a couple of times but now all I get is it fires up then almost imediately cuts out, just wonderinbg whether it could be a faulty coil, what does the team think?

The Star and Garter / Thankyou Hampshire Branch
« on: 07 August, 2017, 08:19:24 »
Well done Hampshire branch, for thier fantastic weekend camp and a big thankyou to all the club branch members and thier wifes, who made the weekend very special, all chipping in and helping out, Joe & Bobs wives for making all the scrummy cakes, Debbie who's work and effort into making everything fall into place. A great ride out on Saturday organised by Joe, the route was very good, shame about my bike playing up. Saturday night skittles was a real hoot with a lot of bantering, I've never played that game with square balls.
Sorry, if I've missed out thanking anyone of the team but you all know who you are, so give yourselves a big pat on the back, you deserve it.

The Star and Garter / Wiultshire branch camp
« on: 31 July, 2017, 21:23:04 »
Firstly thank you to the few Wiltshire members that worked their socks off to put on the camp. but the Wiltshire branch camp at the Bruce arms was, I'm sorry to say, a bit of a let down really and the Wiltshire members only noticable by thier absence, a few visitors were very pleased with the Calne bike show. And a few members were very happy with the alternative run that took place thanks to Bob and Clive. The only saving grace was on Saturday evening with Don Grundy and the two assistants providing a fantastic meal, many thanks for that Don, then after that the Yukie Dukes providing the entertainment for the rest of the evening in the pub.
In my opinion, the landlord is not doing a good job for the BSA owners club, overcharging for the camping area, also not cooking food in the pub and there is not enough facilities for the campers, ie, one toilet per sex for an overcrowded camp site. 
I know it's not easy to find the correct venue for these events but I did find one in the area during my jaunts out to get a meal and if the Wiltshire boys want to check it out, it's the Woodbridge Inn, aprox two miles from Pewsey, good beers, food was reasonable and good camping area behind, after speaking with the landlady, she seemed to welcome campers also.

The Star and Garter / Open day clothing
« on: 17 May, 2017, 23:37:15 »
With less than two weeks before the Open day, please get your order in for the Sweatrshirts & polo shirts together with the size to make sure you get yours, there is a number of items on route to our chairman hopefully.
As I will not be able to make the open day this year, please try to help out where you can, in releiving the staff running the show, ie, manning the booking in tent, directing the members where to park etcetera and hopefully you will all have a good time.

Kind regards TTJohn :) :) 8)

The Star and Garter / Amberley show
« on: 08 May, 2017, 10:52:54 »
Good to see a few familiar  faces yesterday, at the Amberley museum show including our own editor, who had hidden his bike amongst the Bantams, not sure why, perhaps it was because he wasn't booked in.  It was good to see you Chris and hope you enjoyed your egg & bacon butty, I was hoping to see a lot more Hampshire branch members but it was a cold ride first thing in the morning, 125 miles for me and I was glad when I finally arrived, I waas on a Matchless G9 but I wish now that I had taken the Golden Flash, slightly more comfortable riding. 8) ::)

On the 1963 A65 should the ignition warning light, stay illuminated when the bike is running, or should it go out?

Singles / Drive worm-Oilpump-Distributer
« on: 22 March, 2017, 09:07:23 »
Todays enquiry: Is there anyone supplying new worm drives for the C15 oil pump distributor shafts, it fits onto the crank shaft, my mate needs a new one, as there is quite a lot of play in his and we have checked the drive shaft and that appears to be okay but he has about an 1/8" play when shaft is in in place.
 Thanks TTJohn

Twins / Lack of adjustment on carb air screw
« on: 17 March, 2017, 10:14:10 »
I have had quite a problem with the A65L, now, I know it should have a monobloc carb on it as its a 63 model, however, it was fitted with a 930 concentric when I got the bike so I thought I'd leave that on there, I can run the bike on choke, when I take the choke off it cuts out, the mixture screw does not seem to have any effect at all, although I have cleaned out the pilot jet which ids the sealed type and blew it through with an air line, I have just raised the needle to the middle slot which I believe seemed to have  improved it slightly, the book states the needle should be in the first groove, now I'm thinking maybe I should try the third groove, what do the team think? :-\
