    I set mine with no offset. It may be worth putting it into the forks and centralising it there.

Twins / Re: A10 primary belt drives?

     I am contemplating a belt drive, preferably oil free in the primary, I would be interested to hear people's experiences and recommendations.

Many thanks...

Twins / Re: 1969 A65 Rear Mudguard Attach Points

The front/bottom of the mudguard locates in a lug immediately under the lower oil tank rubber.
There is a bracket between the shocks, some are offset some are not. You can use spacers between them I used bolts to centralise the mudguard.
The short strap (68-6768) goes underneath the mudguard to stiffen it.

When you have the bottom front, the bracket between the shocks and the support rail fixed. The grab rail, rear light etc will fall into place. The cut out for the chainguard and the pressings on the sides for the battery and toolbox will help positioning but it's not easy.

    I found this from a guide of classic bike plugs, types etc:

Alloy Head - Champion N8 or N5C NGK B6ES - .020"
Iron Head-  Champion  L10 or L86C NGK B6HS - .020"

It Equates to Draganflys list:

Hi Charles,
                When the fork is fully extended oil migrates back to the bottom of the slider. When you use the bike the stanchion lower end dips into the oil and dampens your ride picking up oil to lub the upper bearing.

Hi Pippinz,
                The sleeve acts as a well. When the damping is working it lifts oil to lubricate the fork stanchion.

Je n'étais pas au courant du camp.

Je suis plus d'un type de château de luxe 5 étoiles avec une fontaine de champagne, caviar, majordome et chauffeur moto et side-car.  ;)

J'espère que vous passerez un bon moment.  :)
