Singles / Re: B40 Star air filter - what's the best option now

Unfortunately the photo is too large, but the setup comprises of the standard rubber tube to the filter inlet.
then a conical air filter on the inside stub. As its hidden by the tool box cover it will do until the genuine article can be found.

This is my setup as I could never source the correct air filter for a 1961 B40.
I will continue  the quest at autojumbles but don't hold out much hope.

Singles / B40 Speedo's

With a 1961 B40 having a grey speedo face, I am having a nightmare trying to find a replacement
magnetic head unit, can anyone recommend a replacement? not necessarily a genuine one but one
with a 2:1 ratio and 60mm diameter. Here's  hoping.

Singles / B40 kickstart
« on: 19 November, 2017, 10:45:31 »
As a newby to the B40 fold any help would be greatly appreciated, my problem is that the kickstart keeps coming loose as I kick it ! Tapping the cotter pin down and doing the nut up doesn't seem to help as the cotter becomes progessivly more mangled, the kickstart does seem a bit loose on the shaft though and i'm wondering if this is the cause. On these early models the shaft is 5/8" and trying to find a new kickstart is proving difficult as most are 3/4". Any help will be appreciated.
