Went to the SRM figure when I put the Boyer ignition on my A65 and it has always run fine.

Hi All
Having not received this months Star thought I’d check to see if anyone else is missing theirs.
Cheers,

Hi Mike
Some “user” anecdotal info to support Julian’s data. As mentioned in my reply to Phil this was my first bike whilst still at school, used it to pass my test. Went to Scotland two up for a holiday. This tested the whole 192cc’s as you can imagine!
Returned close to 65mpg during the trip cruised at around 55mph not the most exiting bike in the world but very reliable, started easily and handled very well for the time. Gave me a great introduction to biking, remember this was in the days before compulsory crash helmets, kept it until school was behind me and working life started then got my first B31  :)

Hi Phil
The tinware just basically covers a space, bike looks pretty odd without the panels. The Valiant was my first “proper” bike 60 years ago!
Cheers Old Biker

Hope the pic works

Did you ensure there was no airlock in the feed line after you refilled the oil tank?

Need to make sure you don't use plugs with in built resistors along with the resistor caps, one or the other with BB ignition
