Offered it up, obviously for an A65 but the two rear lugs are about 2" further back from the bottom engine stud. Looks identical to spares list and will be easy to drill out spot welds and move it forward. No part numbers stamped on it, the cut out for the side stand is in the right place.

Thanks for that, is it the 00052 ?

Twins / Which Boyer for 1971 A65 OIF

Decided on a Boyer Conversion but which one. I want to retain my 12 volt coils. There are several for BSA twins on the market from 94 to 134. I emailed a well known dealer asking this question, their young lady just sent me the fitting instructions.  :-\. I just want a bolt on with no need to buy other bits. The Mark 4 00052 seems to fit the bill. Thanks.

Hi Thumper, maybe they didn't want to get their hands dirty LOL  :D

Great fun getting them out, two hours or two minutes if you are lucky. Some make up a home made tool for this job. Just bought a brand sludge tube from Kidderminster M/C's. Good luck  ;D

I just bought a new old stock one for little money. I shall offer it up when it arrives. I can always put it in the stores  ;D

Were these guards standard on new A65's please.

I thought that they would all have to honour the new MOT rules, otherwise everyone will move companies.

I put them new on my A10 Gold Flash and they were very good, not sure they would suit a 1971 650. Thanks for contribution, will consider it !

I am trying to decide which exhausts to put on my late A65. I like the look of the Dunstalls and they have-had a good name. I don't want too LOUD, any views welcome; thanks.

My one was quite rusty, my mate sandblasted it and powder coated it gloss black 25, looks really nice.

Thanks Julian. Thats a few weeks off yet. 's loads of engine parts arrived from Kidderminster M/C's so I have some building to do first, then lifting the beastie engine back in.

Thumper, it's gone straight over my head now. Will get one of my sparky mates to read your entry and let him do it. Many thanks for your time.

Got the barrels back today, still masked up with heavy duty duct tape so the gun never hit the bores or gasket edges. I have sprayed it gloss black with Halfords home make VHT and it looks nice. I will check it over tomorrow and bake it in the oven. I will put the whole lot in a bath when it's finished and finally put an air line through the oilways. This guy did my frame for me and other bits.
