    Not sure what age your bike is, however generally the driven plate should be 0.140-0,145" thick with a maximum wear of 0.030.

BSA service sheet 153, March 1967. This outlines the revised instructions for A65/50 clutch spring adjustment found in the members area.

       These are close to the original imperial dimensions, may work with a bit of fettling:

    I have 2 A65's with tufnol not metal spacers. I have seen and used metal similar to these but they were not a standard feature:

Hi Willie,
             Try checking the tappet clearance.

    Plus, ensure the clutch centre nut is tightened to a torque of 65 lbs/ft to eliminate clutch drag.

    I agree with Julian. Its difficult to quantify unless you know exactly what is required, some engines need next to nothing done some need major refurbishment. I realise you consider SRM expensive but here's a link to their 2016 prices which should give you some idea of costs.

     New vehicles are subjected to a drive by noise test. No limits apply to motor cycles or mopeds first used before 1 April 1983.

    I don't think there are any specified.

I use the A50/65 setting which for the 9/16" BSC, 20 TPI. In the 60's it was 28/30 lb/ft and changed to 35 lb/ft in May of 1970. Not sure which bolt length you require.

Hi Bill,
          its these you are looking for:

Alternator rotor 2.85" bore 19-8017

Stator 6v RM19 2.85" 19-8016

Maybe worth checking here:

It gives measurements to enable you to check.

Twins / Re: Indicator buzzer
« on: 05 June, 2019, 20:39:50 »
    I have fitted LED indicators, E marked which are successful. I didn't use a buzzer as with a close fitting helmet and exhaust noise I thought it would be difficult to hear.

You can purchase auto turn off relays such as above which work with momentary or normal rocker switch. The E marking and relay option is not cheap but I feel safer on the road and it suits my bike. If you want pics let me know.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

DC - The +ve (mounting stud, positive earth) to the frame. The -ve to the battery (could be via an ignition switch and ammeter).

AC ~ - Two wires from the alternator white/green and green/black to the other two connection on the rectifier.
Three wires from the alternator white/green to one connection green/black and green/yellow to the other.

Best wishes...
