Twins / A65T Pre OIF Tuning Help Needed
« on: 11 April, 2018, 15:16:50 »
Hi all,
I recently gave my 1970 A65T a birthday (new float valve, carby clean and gaskets, new fuel lines, taps and filters) and now it runs terribly. It idles well but is hard to start, backfires and does not want to rev out in any gear. It ran fine before my intervention.
Anyway, as all settings (float height, idle air screw, needle valve height) were returned to what they were before the carby clean, can there be some other reason for the problem?
It seems to run rich so I was going to drop the needle a notch but thought I'd seek advice 1st.
Also, does anyone know of someone in Aberdeenshire who could help me tune it?

Twins / A65T Fork Slider Length
« on: 30 October, 2017, 12:39:53 »
I'm just returning to British bikes via a 1970 A65T (Pre-OIF) project. Previously I've restored a Bantam and B31. I'm a new member of the BSAOC.
On rebuilding the forks, I cannot correctly align the front wheel. It appears that all components on both sides are identical except for the sliders and axle/spindle caps. The RHS (Brake plate) slider seems to be ~ 1/8 inch shorter (from top of slider to top of spindle groove) than the LHS, with end caps also showing ~ 1/8 inch difference.
- Have I got sliders from different models?
- Which one is correct?
- Can I just file down the spindle groove on the LHS slider?
Any advice would be appreciated.
