The Star and Garter / C15 speedo
« on: 17 July, 2019, 14:37:51 »
I would like to replace my 60 mm speedo (In the headlight cowl) with a digital one.
I have trouble with speedo drive parts failing. I have a larger digital speedo on my B25
Satellite driven, which works well. no mechanical drive to fail.

silver solder should fix it.
You must get the parts near to red hot, flux on the joint and feed in the solder, it should run into the joint easily.

Singles / B25 to B40

I wonder if it would be possible to increase performance of a B40, by  fitting higher compression piston (9:1)
and the sportier cams 40-707. Has it been tried?

Singles / Re: C15 clutch advise
« on: 16 April, 2019, 11:18:39 »
DEPTH OF ENGAGEMENT IS IMPORTANT.
TOO SLACK - clutch slip.
too tight - hard to pull in.
springs must be equal adjustment - pull in the clutch lever, turn with kick start pedal.
Clutch shoudl be free to turn. outer plate runs true. if not, adjust screw until it is.

full width hubs are no better than normal hubs, and heavier!

rrt gears are close ratios - good for racing and high speed cruising. Normal ratios are better for general riding.

Singles / B25 front brake.
« on: 10 April, 2019, 16:19:36 »
my B25 front brake is poor, compared to the effective brake on my C15 SS.
The rupert ratio book shows diagram with the shoes in trailing position. the wrong way round.
I tried changing them around, but then the adjustment did not have enough range to allow free turning.
Whats wrong?

The Star and Garter / BSA 500
« on: 03 April, 2019, 06:23:41 »
Last year, I saw a large new van parked near my house, with the reg number - BSA 500.
I think it also had BSA painted on the side. I wondered what it was about.
I left a note under the wipers, that I was a BSA owner, hoping the driver would pop in to see me.
That did not happen.
I wonder if any member could solve this mystery for me?

I found that I would forget to cancel the winkers after turning.
I fitted a large green diode in the centre, linked to each side of the indicator circuits,
and with a diode on each side to isolate from the other circuit. Works very well.

I have some slim, eye shaped indicator lamps on my C15, but large ones on my B25.

If you have bought one, you have the link!
Has anyone used the sockets that are supplied on the wires?
I cut mine off, then joined as appropriate on the bike.
