SR185 Piston

Downtube parted with the rest of the exhaust on Saturday causing scoring to piston and cylinder. Tried to wet n dry them back to a good state, but when rebuilt now have terrible piston slap and can't get her running correctly.

PWK/OKO JJL needle required urgently

anyone know where I can get one within the next week? Running a JJK at the moment top clip (leanest setting) and she's spluttering/missing/four stroking up to half throttle, then clears nicely as I open the throttle more.

Re: GP Flywheel

I'd try a small terminal screwdriver and small hammer to tap it anticlockwise. I wouldn't imagine that you did it up that tight and it should start working loose.

Re: No spark

Whipped flywheel off and the points contact had snapped off where the retaining rivet went through it. It was stuck to one of the flywheel magnets. The spark from the LT had me fooled for a while. New points in and she started second kick. ;) :D :D

Re: No spark

Still on points, I'm afraid :oops: Gonna double check it this morning and stick a new earth twixt coil and frame, instead of relying on the bolt through the E piece as the earth.

Re: Gearbox endplate.

As far as the xmas tree/cluster is concerned, it gets pulled up away from the casing when the main sprocket/clutch is all fitted and tightened up by the large tab washer and nut, so shouldn't be a problem. You have fitted the shim underneath the cluster? And the track in the casing does have a shim ...

Cylinder Head Cowl

Can I remove it after removing the rear shocker and bump stop and spark plug with a Scoot RS expansion exhaust fitted, without having to remove the exhaust? It will save me grief if someone more knowledgeable can advise beforehand. Need to fettle it cus it rattles like a good 'un

Re: Broquet fuel catalyst - anyone used em

Interesting stuff. Improved fuel consumption and reduced particulates, better fuel burning etc. must all be worthwhile. I see some testing for say David Blythe with his EGT ;)
