Clutch plates not separating correctly, need to strip down clean and adjust, perhaps the abrasive plates are worn down, check them with a micrometer, I cannot remember off hand what the correct thickness should be, should tell you in the book, or Julian will put an answer , I'm sure.

Welcome to the club mate, I do hope you can make it to some of the events we hold, The International is usually very good & you will be able to meet quite a few of our members from foreign climes, a good bunch, also the BSA open day which is always held over the last bank holiday in May, at Mkt Harborough rugby club is one for your diary and really one not to be missed.

Hope to meet you at one of these.

Kind regards TTJohn

If I remember correctly, that is our own Robert Smithdale from Norfolk branch. If you take a look at face book, he's always posting on there, I could be wrong as there are quite a few BSA reg plates in the club.

It's all very well storing the bits in these plastic containers but I can never find the container after I have put the stuff in them, then again I have got my own gremlins in the shed, who definitely move the things I am looking for. See they have even hidden the s off of container. ;D ;D

Have you checked the length of the push rod? Not quite sure what bike you have but I had one problem with the clutch and when I looked into it the push rod at the end had mushroomed over, so no matter how much I adjusted it, it would not disengage, length is also crucial, check what that should be for your bike.

Singles / Wiring B25 Starfire

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the B25 Starfire without the Zenor diode and solid state rectifier, I had the misfortune of having to do away with these two items and getting an all in one regulator relay unit from Rex speed shop, what I'm really concerned about is the two wires from the Zenor which I took up to the ammeter.

Thanks in advance TTJohn

The Star and Garter / PWK Carb
« on: 26 February, 2019, 09:45:54 »
Hello all.

I fitted a PWK carb to my A7 it's great starts first kick etc, no problems there but it has a down side, I found that it was not getting the maximum on the throttle, gets up to 50 -60 mph okay then nothing after that, the original jet was only 118, so have increased this to 125 but still the same, trying a 150 today, hoping that will do the trick, anyone else had anything to do with these carbs, for advice please?

I always thought that a forum is like a pub where you can discuss anything without offence, the idea that one must not upset the administrator just because it may offend is wrong, I totally agree that language should be restrained as there is too much of that on FB but  a genuine topic,whether they feel it's right or wrong but for the interest of the club, a members view or opinion should be respected and allowed.

Nuff said, TTJohn

Hello Dave.

I'm sure your correct, and I will  most likely attend, we will most likely have our say at the meeting 3rd March, you will hear all the moans & groans I dare say.

Regards Mate to you and Chris.
