Hi all, having to buy two expensive tubeless tyres for my modern bike in two years due to punctures I was lucky I noticed them back home next day, I cant remember seeing any adverts in the MCN or OBM for get you home repair kits I know they are available from Ebay but does any one know if they have been banned from the media for some reason.Thanks Roy

We had a ride out today unfortunately not on my BSA but my Suzuki to Holmfirth and followed what seemed to be a BSA group they looked and sounded awesome, wonder if they where a local club. Roy :D

Yes all wired up and with the relay under the side panel of my A65 the buzzer was very loud but out on the road I could not hear it due to the exhaust note but I am able to see the front indicators but I have forgot in the past so I might fabricate a light between speedo and rev counter I don't think it should be called an idiot light if it works.

Is there a sump plate with a drain plug available for an A65 that uses the original mounting studs I seem to think 2 of my studs may have been helicoiled in and don't want to upset things,Roy

Ok I have purchased a 12v flasher relay with a good loud beeper and fitted it but can any one tell me what the letters represent on the terminals they are B on one terminal and L on the other thanks Roy

Thanks for the suggestions new horn and battery sorted the problems, the new horn does not have +or-on the terminals but the terminals are insulated from the horn body can the brown/blue and brown/black wires go to any terminal when mounted on the frame. Roy

Thanks spaceman never had it explained to me what volts,amps,ohms,resistance  had to do with the flow of electricity I was under the impression that showing 12+volts every thing was ok. Roy

Hi all still not able to work on my problem yet but if the horn is duff would pressing the push button act like a kill switch and if I took the head light bulb out of its holder and put the probes from a voltmeter in place with the engine stood would it read 12v plus and is there another way to test a battery other than leaving the lights on still open for suggestions thanks Roy

Hi all whilst out on my 1966 A65L I had to  touch the horn button the sound was just a faint pip and the engine seam to stop for a split second, further down the road I tried it again and the same happened the bike was running great, back home for some reason I put the lights on and they just glowed checked the battery and this was showing 12.6v the horn and dip switch are a couple of years old, any idea where to start looking thanks Roy  ???
