Hi all, should new clutch friction (drive) plates be installed dry on a A65L would it be ok to use a semi synthetic oil in the primary chain case.thanks Roy

I know oil should be in the primary chain case but should the driving plates be wet mine are just damp if they should be wet would a soak in oil help.Roy

Thanks for the replies, JohnJag  going to look at clutch after trying  different  plugs the only thing I can think it might be is the clutch. Roy

Thanks A10 JWO the battery was fully charged, cannot understand why they spark when earthed to the cylinder head but will not in the plug hole, could something be slipping when kicked over when plugs are in situ and causing compression.

Hi all A65L would not start battery was charged up but would not kick over put some ingnition spark testers on each plug (red plastic plug type cap with I think a diode inside goes between plug and cap) tried to kick it up  but the diodes did not flash took plugs out with testers still on rested them on cylinder head kicked it over the testers and plugs flashed tried several times plugs in and out but would only flash on cylinder head bike has boyer ignition and duel coil,strange they would not spark under compression. Any ideas please Roy

When Classic Bike explained it, it sounded like when the power went through  the ammeter it warmed up and broke the circuit and the bike would not start but  would the next day (I don't know why they used the term dry) just a thought

Hi I had a similar problem, took bike for a run came back and it would not start again till the next day took it for a run again same thing happened but started next day after weeks of asking questions Classic Bike mag suggested I had a dry connection in the ammeter I bypassed this and it started even after a run bought a new ammeter job sorted. hope this might help

Hi all, having found my timing light not working after lending it out awhile ago, on boyer bransden ignition where should the slotted stator plate be adjusted to starting from the centre of the slots I know every engine is different but would like a starter, also any recommendation for a strobe light that I might only use once or twice a year. Thanks Roy
