Re: WD Contract Plate

John If the underlying paint is basically intact and your going to spray the enamel then you should be able to flat back what is already on there which should give you a good prepared surface for spraying. Obviously check the enamel does not react with whats on there already. If you decide to get th...

Re: WNG Rear Mudguard measures

Adrie Here are the two nuts from my WNG, as far as I know they are original. I had a problem in that with the pannier mounting brackets fitted I could not get a spanner on these nuts as they were too big. I then used two half width normal size 5/16 nuts with washers for the raised part to solve the ...

Re: Thread on Drags SS 3/8 bolts & nuts

Last time I spoke to acme stainless (2019) he told me that he used to supply to Drags but doesn't any more, so maybe they have some issues with their new supplier.

Re: VG 500 1938 - Rear mudguard

Erik, welcome to the forum. That is a very nice looking motorcycle. Looks like a 1938 as the front forks do not have the additional re-bound' springs and it has the earlier primary drive cases. Frame number and engine number should reveal all. The Draganfly site https://www.draganfly.co.uk/ has load...

Re: PRIMARY CHAIN ADJUSTMENT

Johnny Tightening of the primary chain in use can point to the gearbox bottom mounting hole in the gearbox casing having worn oval or oversize. If it is oversize the 'pulling' force of the rear drive chain is more than enough to move the bottom of the gearbox rearwards, pivoting it around the top mo...

Re: The Beast lives

Ralph, Looks like you have got it sorted...as you have found tightening the acorn nut fully first is the correct way (this is the method written down in the owners instruction manual). This earlier topic may be helpful re the different types of spindle and how the rockers are set up. http://forum.ar...
