    Can you open the image using Microsoft Office Picture Manager? If so I will post a step by step guide.

Which BSA do you ride? / Re: Latest bike build

    He's my latest and last build. I'm having trouble deciding on lighting, exhaust and mudguard arrangement, any suggestions welcome.

    Modern bikes use a variety of connection systems mainly waterproof. I tend to use continuous lengths to and from, soldering together and using heat shrink over the any joints. I only use the connectors supplied on the device (horn, headlight, battery, switch etc.). I use LED and have changed to -ve earth on all the latest builds.

None of it is difficult, I start by making up a wiring diagram reducing the wiring and joints to the absolute minimum. Loosely put the wiring around the bike to find the best routes, I try to hide as much as possible. I use earth cables taking them back to the battery so not relying on the frame a a return path unless its a direct path through the frame (not the fork bearings or mudguards etc). Then put on the outer covering making a loom, zip connect to frame, connect to the equipment connectors, turn on and watch the whole thing catch fire (hopefully not  :) ;))

Hope this helps...

    The mix will be leaner, hence screw in pilot screw.

You may also need to raise the needle, fit a larger needle jet, smaller cutaway and larger jet.

The Star and Garter / Re: End float
« on: 02 November, 2018, 18:11:01 »
Hi Mike,
             The easiest way is to look for the 3 number stamping on the crankcase (not the matching case numbers) and the 3 number stamping on the crank. When you have these take the crank number from the case number and you will have the end float in thou of inch.

Example 790 on crank 800 on case = 8 thou shim for 2 thou end float.
