The Star and Garter / Bike recovery
« on: 15 March, 2018, 10:27:33 »
Hello people
Having rebuilt my C15 last year many of you gave me tons of
help and advice.
Now starting to trust my bike for longer trips.
So any advice on recovery in the event of a breakdown would be great.
Looking at RAC, very expensive for a limited service.
Thanks in anticipation.
PS.  Still looking for a classic to work on.

Hello people
Just decided to get my bike out of hibination.
Started after a few kicks.
Very pleased.
Replaced a faulty headlight bulb but main beam much too high.

Bulb came from vehicle wiring products
Any thoughts

Singles / C15 side stand
« on: 11 July, 2017, 16:53:44 »
Finally got a side stand only to find the fulcrum pin is too large to fit the lug.
I suspect pin is hardened.
Anyone had a similar problem

Singles / C15 Speedo
« on: 10 July, 2017, 09:12:51 »
Finally got a speedometer.
Would anyone recommend lubrication for the cable.
Also speedo end of cable drive seems too long.
Not sure if different at each end.
Cable was previously fixed so may have take off tank etc.
Just about to fit 180 main jet for road trail.
Booking MOT this week
Updates later.

Singles / C15 Forks
« on: 30 June, 2017, 08:18:10 »
After a few short test runs my forks are leaking badly.
So no chance of an MOT yet.
Have removed forks but seals look new but not a tight fit on stanchions.
In haste ordered 4 seals from Burton bikes but not sure if these will seal.
Stanchions look good no sign of ware.
Could anyone provide the diameter of stanchions please.
Summer riding time is going fast !

Singles / C15 rebuild
« on: 08 June, 2017, 11:42:14 »
As some of you know I have just finished a rebuild.
Just noticed the carb. Is 375/4
Engine is coded SS80
Information from Julian stated should be 376
Can I achieve reasonable running with the 375 or not
Not interested in top performance just a reliable run about.
Any advise much appreciated as usual

The Star and Garter / HELP C15 seat
« on: 04 May, 2017, 21:43:09 »
Hi people not a happy chapy.
 Cannot get the seat to look correct.
Bike been on the bench for months when on the floor seat is impossible to get in line !
I may have the wrong seat.
Would a Bantam seat cause this problem.
Help and advise much appreciated.
Fed up

Hello folks
Update on my C15
Some of you may remember the progress of this rebuild.
Late last night managed to lower the bike to the floor it had been on the bench for months
so I wanted to run the engine again.
This is the first time complete with proper petrol tank.
Bike is all together apart from chain guard.
After several Kicks not even a single fire, thought about wet dumping etc.
Then noticed the fuse on the bench from earth connection (idiot)
Started first kick
Lots of fettling to do clutch, leek on carb., tappets.
Still waiting to be informed of date for DVLA INPECTOR.
There is positive hope of return to the road

The Star and Garter / DVLA registration
« on: 02 May, 2017, 06:58:14 »
Hello People
Waiting for a DVLA oppionted rep. To inspect my C15.
This is apparently required before tax.
Anyone know what is involved in the inspection ?
NB I still have chain guard and seat to sort out !

Singles / C15 rear light
« on: 18 April, 2017, 22:56:30 »
I am experiencing difficulty fitting a bulb to the rear light.
As you know this is the stop and tail type I am on 6 volt, although I am using an offset bulb
in a similar type holder the pins do not align.
I thought the fitting may be different for 6 volt ? So tryed. a 12 volt bulb same no fit ?
Some of you may remember this bike came in boxes so not the original light.
Sorry to witter on but are 6volt and 12volt bulbs the same type of pins.
Thanks in anticipation.

Singles / C15 lighting switch
« on: 17 April, 2017, 23:06:25 »
Just completed rewire.
I think the switch is not making contact.
Can these be opened up for repair ??
Otherwise more expense.
Too far to turn back now.
