Singles / Re: C15 Forks
« on: 07 July, 2017, 23:31:20 »
Forks done.
Burton seals are fine after all.
Put additional O- Rings to seal at threaded joint.
No leak yet so fingers crossed.
Still some tuning to do with the 375 carb running on 200 main jet but seems a bit rich so I
have a 180 to test.
Probably need to check timing because starting seems more difficult although once running
Goes well.
Engine is rebuilt so need to run in.
Next step is MOT.
THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE HELP
Regards

Thanks for a quick reply Julian.
All the seals old and new comply to your figures within a very small difference.
The new are a more favorable size that is slightly smaller I/D and slightly larger O/D
My main concern is the deeper recess in the fittings.
By the way which way up are the seals fitted ?

Yes the diameter is 1 1/4
The space for the seals in the crome holders twice the seal thickness and could allow the seal
to "waddle" in situ. Also there is a machined ridge which will not allow further reduction of the
Seal space.
There is no ware or damage on the stanchions.
Two seals are fitted each side and it appears new seals and possibly stanchions have  been fitted
recently.
The new seals purchased from Burton arrived this morning and seem a Good seal on the stanchions
but not in the chrome holders.
So could leak between outside of the seal and seal holders
Looking at the possibility of packing spacers/and or glue??

Singles / C15 Forks
« on: 30 June, 2017, 08:18:10 »
After a few short test runs my forks are leaking badly.
So no chance of an MOT yet.
Have removed forks but seals look new but not a tight fit on stanchions.
In haste ordered 4 seals from Burton bikes but not sure if these will seal.
Stanchions look good no sign of ware.
Could anyone provide the diameter of stanchions please.
OR ANY OTHER HELP
Summer riding time is going fast !
Regards

As some of you know I have just finished a rebuild.
Just noticed the carb. Is 375/4
Engine is coded SS80
Information from Julian stated should be 376
Can I achieve reasonable running with the 375 or not
Not interested in top performance just a reliable run about.
Any advise much appreciated as usual

Hi Although you have replaced the condenser I have experienced a number of faulty NEW condensers.
Because your bike is giving same fault on two carb. Set ups it points to electrical problem !
I would try another condenser.
You could use a non standard external condenser for a static trial.

Hi Oliver
           I have just finished a C15 myself.
           With lots of help from the BSA forum.
            There are many more experienced people to help but you could start by
            checking the float and level in the chamber.
             Have you the normal 375 carb ?
Regards
           Tim
