Singles / C15 update
« on: 02 June, 2018, 19:50:47 »

Hi everyone hope your all well.
I thought it was time for an update on my c15 rebuild after another bout of illness. (Depression and anxiety).
Last weekend I rode it down the street for the first time in many years.
Still more to do but it's getting there.

Singles / C15 won't start.
« on: 11 February, 2018, 17:10:58 »
Help please.
I recently had my c15 running but exhaust valve kept sticking.
Stripped back down and sorted out the tight valve guide.
I have Fuel and spark but won't start. Bloody frustrating.
Any advice would be welcome.

Singles / Sticking valve

If the exhaust side tappet and rocker becomes separated from the push rod am I right in thinking the exhaust valve is sticking on my c15.

The Star and Garter / Machine dating for age related plate.

Hi.
Do I still have to send in photos to get a report to send to DVLA.
Or will a club official come and see the bike.

Thanks

The Star and Garter / BSAOC future .

Hi
Being part of the owners club is great lots of knowledge and tips on various subjects.
My question is what are the different branches and the main club doing about encouraging younger BAD owners to join the club or even those who are already members to be more active.
Thoughts and ideas will make interesting reading.

A few weeks ago I finally got round to going to my local branch which is South Derbyshire.
Before my first visit I envisaged it would be full of lots of old chaps who wouldn't have any interest in any young whipper snapper.
Well on arrival there were several chaps of certain age all gathered together but there were also a lot of young  chaps there.
Everyone who I spoke to made me very welcome and took the time to ask me what bike I had and who may be Able to help me if I needed.
I will be going back to more natter nights and would encourage anyone who hasn't been to local branch to get themselves down there.

Singles / C15 engine
« on: 23 September, 2017, 15:29:45 »
Hi
I am a total novice and can not sort out my c15 engine.
I am constantly going backwards with it when i am trying to get it running.
Is there anyone who can take it to their  garage/ shed and get it running. I have followed lots of advice etc but still no joy.
This is the last chance to get it running or I get rid of it and pack away my spanners.

The Star and Garter / C15 Timing
« on: 02 July, 2017, 20:44:24 »
As a complete amateur to rebuilding British bikes could anyone please explain electronic timing on a c15 distributor model.
I ve learnt that you have to move the distributor to make it run.
However I ve have had flames shooting out the exhaust and on another occasion smoke being blown out of the back of the  carb towards the air filter.
I still cant get it to run so any help or advice would be gratefully received .

Does anyone have any tips on how to stop oil dripping from the sump studs.
