I once had a bike that was a 1983 machine, imported from Italy, when the log book came it was a 1963, I wasn't going to complain, (free tax etc) I can stand a mistake once but not twice. ;D ;D

A lot of owners just put a normal screw in the chain case oil feeder hole, to seal it up, I don't think it's really necessary to have an oil feed to the chain, as you cann lubricate that manually.

New carb and set up did the trick, I can now report that the starting issue has been solved, I also went out on Thursday last just to try it out, one or two teething problems which were quickly overcome, so I now have a nice little bike to poodle along on, while I spend some time on the others.
Thanks all for all the advice and suggestions.

Kind regards TTJohn

Thanks for the pictures Rob. This was one outstanding rally, one of the best I have ever been to, theorganisation was superb, location, rideouts, were fantastic and what could you say about dinner dance at the Toucan hotel, INCREDABLE. :)

Stolen vehicles are just statistics now, there are about 60 scooters/motorcycles stolen in Camden Borough every month. Food for thought.

Answer, don't move to Camden Borough, there's a lot of theives there. :) :) ;)

I really don't think thirty thou out is anything to worry about , when you think of the distance between the two sprockets, this is quite acceptable.

Weak battery, dirty carb, blocked breather in fuel cap.
No mate, none of these, all checked.

I know there is a lot of concern just lately about bikes that have been stolen and most of them are finishing up abroad, or so I am led to beleive, now, my question is what type of check is made at the ports and outlets of the country is there. I really do not think there is any, so your bike could be winging its way to Poland, Rumania or anywhere where there is no checks, once there, the bike is stored for a while before re- registering.
I really think that there should be more checks at the docks etc to see what is leaving this country.

I have a recently aquired B25 with Boyer Bransden ignition, I have had it running a couple of times but now all I get is it fires up then almost imediately cuts out, just wonderinbg whether it could be a faulty coil, what does the team think?

I think B&Q quarter turn gas taps are the answer, I use them on most of my bikes, screw straight in and do not leak.

I have a spare bolt up gearbox for my plunger Golden Flash, now, most gearboxes have stamped on them STD but the spare one I have is marked up XX any clues as to why this should be, or is there any signifigence in this?

This is no different to what you already have, so I cannot see your point in this.


The Star and Garter / Thankyou Hampshire Branch
« on: 07 August, 2017, 08:19:24 »
Well done Hampshire branch, for thier fantastic weekend camp and a big thankyou to all the club branch members and thier wifes, who made the weekend very special, all chipping in and helping out, Joe & Bobs wives for making all the scrummy cakes, Debbie who's work and effort into making everything fall into place. A great ride out on Saturday organised by Joe, the route was very good, shame about my bike playing up. Saturday night skittles was a real hoot with a lot of bantering, I've never played that game with square balls.
Sorry, if I've missed out thanking anyone of the team but you all know who you are, so give yourselves a big pat on the back, you deserve it.
