Re: BLOA dead?

Not much chance of that, I've not seen any photos of any of the "rallies" he's held since 12 people turned up at Sywell over 12 months ago LOL. Only 12 really? Or are you just knocking him. That's a genuine question by the way. If you're right, I feel a bit sorry for him despite it being his own do...

Re: How hot does a TS1 kit get? Kosos CHT gauge ?

My bet would be that it depends on where the sensor is mounted. On bikes and other air cooled motors without fans you can mount it under the plug and this will give you more of an instant reading. Because of the cowlings on a lammy, you have to mount on a fin, so different people are going to mount...

Re: Wrong frame cones.

Thanks Adam. If that's your (more experienced than me) prognosis, I'll use what I have. It's only a temporary engine as I have 2 more I want to experiment with waiting in the wings.

Wrong frame cones.

I was just about to put the engine in my budget bitsa but I think I need different cones. These ones were used with small engine mounts. I think I need ones with a small shoulder (can't think of a better word) for large silent blocks that I've fitted. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190527/6410ae...

Re: Finally have the LiS 185cc running ok

Ha ...I cannot say my experiment was fun but It sure was a steep learning curve. I cannot tell you the number of times I left the sccoter for weeks at a time determined to just give up before the stress got too bad. First think I found was that both the 2x Indian cyclinders I have a 185cc and a 200...

Re: Crikey its quiet in here ..iet in here...in here... here..

On such a large forum simple search terms can return hundreds of 'hits' - some search terms are sometimes blocked or ignored because they're too common - you need to be quite savvy with the search to find some relevant information. It can be quite frustrating trying to find what you need so it's of...

Re: Finally have the LiS 185cc running ok

Sounds like it goes better than my ts1 225! Good work.

My next build is an Indian alloy 175 which I bored to 185 for Suzuki ts piston. I've heard they wear like cheese but it's fun to experiment.

Re: Crikey its quiet in here ..iet in here...in here... here..

Personally I MUCH prefer this forum and lcgb to the FB waffle and arguments.

I miss the constant interesting and constructive discussion that would appear on these forums, but I guess it's just the world turning.
