1957 VH discovered in USA

Dear fellow enthusiasts, I have acquired this 1957 VH today (you may also get a chuckle from the license plates of my friend Rick’s truck). This is a fairly complete bike with solid compression.

V5C certificate and ownership

Re: Solex carb - adjusting fuel mix

Hi Stuart,

Thank you. I have ordered a no. 25 jet from David. I will update after it has been installed. I also wanted to point out that the rear left side spark plug definitely seems to be "darker". I am not sure if the valve guide is leaking oil or if the rings are suspect.

Solex carb - adjusting fuel mix

Dear fellow enthusiasts,

This is regarding my 1948 framed Square with a 1937 engine. I was checking the spark plugs and noticed signs of a significantly lean fuel mix. How does one adjust fuel mix on a Solex?

Thank you.
