Re: BLOA dead?

So does this mean my lifetime membership is invalid?

It seemed really good value at only £5 per month.

There doesn't seem to be a way to cancel the direct debit.

Oh well, the multiple discounts I can get at Woolworths, BHS, maplins etc. Will more than cover that.

Re: 175 Piston

With a 60/110 and a gp 150 barrel bored to 175 you can pack it so that you have mid 120s transfers. Mine rides really nice like that, but I've also raised exhaust to 178 and inlet is something like 140.

Re: LT Coil.

You absolutely could do just that, BUT the other 2 are in series to give 12v. So, you could put 3 in parallel and have 6v but with 50% more power. Anthony tambs is developing a 3 phase stator which in my opinion is absolutely the best way to go. I'm not alone in this opinion though; try to find a mo...

Re: Painting rear hub

I see no reason for heat resistant paint either, but I hate powder coat. It just looks wrong to me.

You can buy rattle cans and do it yourself. Unless you're s**t at painting and it will look worse than powder coat. :-)

Re: variatronic ignition fitted to a casa 225 timing instructions

24 at 2000 rpm will be about 16 degrees by about 7000 rpm.

Re: Engine Mount Disaster

Hard to say without seeing it, but personally, I think I'd be ok with just leaving it.
