Twins / Re: Spitfire colour
« on: 10 July, 2017, 19:44:33 »
Hi folks, I'm about ready to paint my Spitfire fiberglass tank and have been told that there are two colours. Apparently, the mk11 was initially launched in peony red but later could be had in a brighter red that I don't have the name of. Anyone know what this brighter red may be called?
Regards Bob
Royal Red

Twins / Oil feed routing
« on: 27 March, 2017, 14:19:21 »
I have looked for a routing diagram, without success.
Does anone know which side of the bottom oil tank fixing does the rocker box feed go ?
When I got the bike it was routed on the engine side of the bottom fixing, I think it would look much better if it was routed between the bottom fixing and the frame.
Is there any reason why I can't do this ?

Picture shows it routed on the engine side of the bottom fixing.

Good thinking, I will give that a go today (Sunday) & let you know how it goes.
(If I can find a nut to fit the bolt)

Twins / Nut removal

I am trying to remove the acorn nut from the end of the rocker shaft but the shaft just turns and the nut stays put.
Any one got a trick to lock the shaft so that the nut can be removed ?

Twins / primary chain case cover

Does anyone know if my 1958 primary chain case cover with just the one cap will change for the newer type with the two caps and the drain / level plug in the bottom ?

A little louder would be beneficial.
Thanks.

Thanks Arthur.
Simplest thing is to test it on a 12V battery and see what happens.

Why didn't I think of that?

The Star and Garter / 6v to 12v
« on: 03 March, 2017, 08:06:22 »
I am going over to 12v.
Do I have to change to a 12v horn or will my 6v horn stand the pressure ?

Then the plug I have to use is a Champion N4c as a replacement for the N4 .
