Re: Avanti headcowl on TS1

Is the head machined like the ones on ebay at the moment?

Re: Avanti headcowl on TS1

Need a bit more information, what crankshaft set up have you got? If you are running a standard 58mm stroke 107 rod you should be able to get all three cowl bolts on and should fit flush to the mag housing assuming you have a SIl or Innocenti Mag housing. Are you using 4 x long standard head nuts? RM

Re: 4 stroking between 1/4 and 1/2 throttle

Personally I would run it through the air box without a filter. Is the carb a genuine 22/2 Dellorto? Go smaller on the pilot jet, keep the main jet high.
Also air screw at 1.5 turns out. give me a call if you get stuck. RM

I started with a Ron Moss clubman, changed to a Franspeed Tourer (not the super) and i'm now running the Franspeed Race. I've ditched the varitronic and i'm running 17 BTC static. I've c...

Re: Avanti set up

Just to clarify this: I did NOT set that carb up, A.N. Other did, the sizes given were exactly as given to me. Also I have never test ridden that machine so I cannot say how it was running. It was an assumption on my part that the customer was happy the way they had set it up! Having said that the c...

Heads with Slots Update! I made another pattern a couple of weeks ago with slots in, unfortunately being sand cast it did not work as the angles were not right for removal from the sand! So this batch are going to be as before, I can do it but it will take a bit of time which I do not have at the mi...
