Singles / Wiring B25 Starfire
« on: 11 March, 2019, 15:58:49 »
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?


The Star and Garter / Hotel bookings for the open day

Hello all.
Take a look in the rally section for hotel bookings for 23rd to 27th May open day.


National, Branch and Group Events / Open day hotel bookings price
« on: 06 February, 2019, 13:57:45 »
Hello all.

I have been on to the Travel Plaza at Desborough, which some will remember is the Gurkha restaurant and I have negotiated a special price with them of 60 per night to BSA club members, through Sonia,  breakfast is extra should you want it. Just let them know it's the BSA club rally, I know that the booking  the hotels at this time of year is in the region of 75 per night minimum. So if you are looking for somewhere, it's four miles from the rally site, get booking before it's too late.

Mention my name, John Michael.


The Star and Garter / The Star, Well done Chris Golby

The last issue of the Star was really interesting, with some really good content from members, as was the previous December issue, Keep up the good work Chris, you are doing a fantastic job, I know it's a daunting task that everyone seems to take for granted but I think you deserve a huge pat on the back mate. Heart felt thanks for all your effort.


The Star and Garter / Awards weekend
« on: 20 November, 2018, 10:07:51 »
Looking forward to this coming weekend down in Wales, at the awards weekend, I suppose there could be a few less this year, with a lot being or returning from the international but I am sure it will be a great weekend and I'm looking forwards to seeing a few old familiar faces there.
I do have my trusty hip flash and wellies at the ready, see you there.


The Star and Garter / Chronometric speedo repairs
« on: 07 November, 2018, 11:39:34 »
I would like to strongly recommend Chronometric Instrument Services,  What a fantastic job they did for me, I sent away my Chronometric speedo to them, after talking with Russ, the chap who runs the place, he gave me a turn around time of three weeks, which was spot on, received it this morning and was delighted with the result. A complete rebuild, re calibrated and it looks like new, 140 plus 8-50 recorded delivery, fantastic. Highly recommended.

Regards TTJohn

Singles / B25 problem
« on: 30 July, 2018, 11:18:40 »
Hello All.
I have a slight problem with my 1969 Starfire, after a short out, due to the horn wires melting on to the exhaust pipes when the bracket broke, almost burning out the loom, repairs were made and Zenor diode & solid state rectifier replaced with a RR 12v-14 unit, I am showing a discharge on the ammeter, when lights are on but no sign of charging, although checking with the meter at the battery it's showing a charge, ammeter is okay, when I took it for a short ride through the town I notice the primary chain case was very hot, I know the weather was hot, which didn't help but I could not hold my hand on the chain case for any length of time.
Maybe I've missed something, or maybe I need to get a new loom, what do you think?


Singles / B25 Wiring
« on: 01 July, 2018, 12:27:09 »
Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a B25 1959 model, using a RR12v-14 with a Pazon electronic ignition? I seem to have a problem, I have done away with the solid state rectifier and Zenor diode but I don't seem to be able to get the thing wired up to work, on the diagram they send out with the RR it looks so simple, what am I doing wrong?


The Star and Garter / Diamond jubilee year
« on: 25 April, 2018, 11:34:50 »
I am slightly confused about the date of the diamond jubilee, as I know we had a diamond jubilee memorabilia for the BSA open day in 2012, can someone in the know please check and possibly verify the correct date for the Diamond jubilee?

Kind regard TTJohn

The Star and Garter / Members meeting at Long Compton
« on: 06 November, 2017, 10:11:33 »
It was a very good turn out of members at the meeting yesterday, with some interesting & informative, discusions. It was very good to see other members, who are dedicated to supporting the club, (we all know it's the best club out) I know that it's a bit of a chore getting up on Sunday to travel sometimes 150 miles or more but that is the only way we have to keep in touch & know what's going on and what events to look forward to.
It was great to hear that Daphne is doing a parachute jump to raise funds for a very good cause, she has got more pluck than me but I hope you will all sponser her by making a donation.

Just my two penneth TTJohn

The Star and Garter / Stolen bikes
« on: 11 September, 2017, 12:34:23 »
I know there is a lot of concern just lately about bikes that have been stolen and most of them are finishing up abroad, or so I am led to beleive, now, my question is what type of check is made at the ports and outlets of the country is there. I really do not think there is any, so your bike could be winging its way to Poland, Rumania or anywhere where there is no checks, once there, the bike is stored for a while before re- registering.
I really think that there should be more checks at the docks etc to see what is leaving this country.

Singles / B25 starting problem
« on: 11 September, 2017, 11:55:45 »
I have a recently aquired B25 with Boyer Bransden ignition, I have had it running a couple of times but now all I get is it fires up then almost imediately cuts out, just wonderinbg whether it could be a faulty coil, what does the team think?

The Star and Garter / Thankyou Hampshire Branch
« on: 07 August, 2017, 08:19:24 »
Well done Hampshire branch, for thier fantastic weekend camp and a big thankyou to all the club branch members and thier wifes, who made the weekend very special, all chipping in and helping out, Joe & Bobs wives for making all the scrummy cakes, Debbie who's work and effort into making everything fall into place. A great ride out on Saturday organised by Joe, the route was very good, shame about my bike playing up. Saturday night skittles was a real hoot with a lot of bantering, I've never played that game with square balls.
Sorry, if I've missed out thanking anyone of the team but you all know who you are, so give yourselves a big pat on the back, you deserve it.
