Singles / Re: C15 Forks question

Hi,
    Looks like they are fitted to competition models, probably to reduce the fork damper travel for better control and leave more stanchion in the slider for addition strength during arduous conditions.

Hi Julian,
              Interesting document. I haven't had an issue, I do regularly check fastenings throughout so I guess I wouldn't.

Hi,
    I had similar problems, to narrow identification:

1962 - 1969 Valve guides are this shape   https://www.feked.com/bsa-a50-a65-bronze-inlet-and-exhaust-guide-68-0809.html
1970 -1972 Guides are this shape   https://www.britishbikebits.com/valve-guide-g542pb-bsa-a65-1971-72#.WdkVQ2hSyUk

1962 - 1968 The two rear head bolts are 5/16" diameter
1969 - 1972 The two rear head bolts are 3/8" diameter

1962 - 1970 The rocker cover studs are 1/4" diameter
1971 -1972 The rocker cover studs are 5/16" diameter (the rocker cover has the head-steady bracket, hence the larger studs)

I also used the valve specification as Julian previously posted.

From your posted images you have a 1969.

Hope this helps....

Hi,
    I use a bar with a notch, hook the spring on the bar, put the notch on the frame lug and lever on. See Utube link at about 27 secs, a nice young lady will show u how...
