Hi Thumper. I have almost the identical 1971-72 diagram, it does not show the black switch that is on the top of the headlight shell. It would appear that mine was factory fitted ? Can't find it in the Lucas manuals either, a right puzzler ? Just looked on Dragonfly site, they list the switch in the headlight 19-1095 as a Kill Switch and in the price list they call it a lighting switch.

I am about to buy a new ignition switch for my 1971. I was lead to believe that all OIF's had a four position switch. I too have a switch on the headlight shell. Does anyone have a definitive answer on these 1971 and 1971 OIF's, sorry to hijack thread.

I am looking at new Lucas 4 position switches for my OIF. They are about 42 new. Looking at the 2 position, it will work and is cheaper. Do you really need a parking light ?

They look nice Bess. They may foul the chassis of the air-box if it is still fitted to his OIF.

Pancakes allow plenty of air in I would suggest. Plenty of second hand OIF air boxes about and they do spray up nice.

Try a block of wood under the tyre to get it on the stand.

Twins / Headset bearing adjustment.
« on: 16 February, 2018, 17:15:40 »
I started with a bare frame, new abutment rings, new bearings fitted and new stanchions. I have fitted the fork legs and front wheel. The problem I have is the final adjustment on the new setup. It is all too heavy to feel the adjustment. Worried about over-tightening.  Any tips please. 1971 A65.

What do you think of the price ? Too much, it's still there.

I have been reporting these for over two years. Ebay state that they won't reply. They don't do anything to have them caught either.

If you cannot touch it, don't buy it. These guys also read forums, it shows them the best way forward.
