Singles / Scavenge Valve Replacement
« on: 29 January, 2018, 16:32:34 »
Hi,
My Starfire has a lot of il in the sump. looking at the scavenge valve it's difficult to see if it's working ok. The end of it looks a bit chewed up so i would like to get it out and inspect it and if necessary replace it but how do you get it out? Iv'e seen reference to a grub screw but can't see one.

Has anyone done this?

Cheers
Phil

Singles / B25.Starfire - Tachometer Question
« on: 17 December, 2017, 20:37:32 »
Hi,
I recently  bought a 1970 starfire. It's in pretty good condition but has enough things to do to keep  me busy over winter.
 
The model I have has a single speed but I have noticed that some Starfire's also have a tachometer.  I thought this might be a nice addition but when checked my bike there is no connection point. 

Looking at some pictures of Starfires online I can see a connection  point just above to the right of the oil pressure relief valve but on mine there's nothing (see attached  picture).

My question  is,  should  there be one or was it only on some models?

Cheers
Phil

Singles / Starfire Primary Chain Case Drain plug / Level Plug
« on: 06 November, 2017, 23:41:28 »
Hi,
I've just bought a 1970 Starfire and am just getting to grips with the basics. My bike has no drain plug and no obvious oil level plug on the primary chain cover. It looks like it was cast with the intention of one but it's solid. (see picture)

Also, on the case on the other side of the engine there is a strange bolt next to the kick start for with I can't find any reference to in the workshop manual or searching online. (see picture 2) Any thoughts on what it might be for?

Cheers
Phil
