Hi
Yes the pushrods are connected.
I think I need to go back to the start again with the timing and tappets etc and reset everything.

Help please.
I recently had my c15 running but exhaust valve kept sticking.
Stripped back down and sorted out the tight valve guide.
I have Fuel and spark but won't start. Bloody frustrating.
Any advice would be welcome.

When everything is in place. I can start the engine and it will run for a few minutes. 
Then there is a loud ping and the exhaust valve stops moving and the rocker is not under pressure from the valve.
It's as if the spring get stuck.

If the exhaust side tappet and rocker becomes separated from the push rod am I right in thinking the exhaust valve is sticking on my c15.

Hi.
Do I still have to send in photos to get a report to send to DVLA.
Or will a club official come and see the bike.

Thanks

Bess.
Could you not start your own branch in Devon.
I wonder if something could be printed in the star to see how many owners down your way would come along if one was set up.

I am glad that membership has increased over that few year's. As a Bsaoc member I happy to help in any way I can to encourage others to join.
But as the older generation get older they are becoming less and less and a lot of their knowledge will go with them.
Sadly in 2017 there are less people wanting to ride motorcycles when they have a modern car with all mod cons.
As to recruiting  new members .
There are lots of auto jumble around the country were local branches could have a stall and hopefully get some new members.
Social media is being under used . Not many branches use the likes of Facebook.
