thanks guys have checked your suggestions out I think it must be a fuel/air mixture problem, but it fires up with a squirt of easy start,(but what wouldn't)

Hi I have a 1966 lightning with Boyer Bransden ignition and modern rectifier/zener diode when I turn the ignition on  the ammeter needle goes to -3 for a couple of seconds then returns to zero is this normal or is there a fault somewhere, thanks Roy

Hi Trev just read your problem when your bike is on the centre stand is the engine running? could it be your chain is too tight when the bike is not on the stand putting pressure on the gear box internals just a thought but might help Roy
