Re: why Li-ion batteries are no good for motorcycles

Do I use a Lithium Ion Battery in my Vincent? The fact Li batteries require their own special chargers, and your Vincent has a Miller voltage regulator, is the first clue you should not use a Li battery. Even if you've replaced the Miller with a modern voltage regulator, the charging requirements f...

I only need one but bought two to have a spare. But, then I foun...

Re: Adjustable magneto sprocket

I just learned of the existence of the following vernier sprocket: http://www.kingpincomponents.co.uk/rudge-12t-vernier-sprocket It's not cheap, and is advertised as being for a Rudge, but with the same number of teeth and taper on the magneto I can't see why it wouldn't fit. The 2.3-deg. increments...

Re: Adjustable magneto sprocket

Hi folks, has anyone actually used this product, I bought one a year ago to use on the 1928 Ariel I rode in the cross-U.S. Cannonball in September. The timing slipped after some number of miles (less than 1000) that I initially, and incorrectly, blamed on the adjustable sprocket, but it turned out ...

I rarely ride at night, ... with LED conversions... my newly rebuilt M01 magneto on the W/NG has been very reliable I, too, rarely ride at night and have LED bulbs with NiMH battery packs in four bikes to take care of me when I do.

Re: Coil or Mag? E3L or Alton?

I've been thinking about whether to go the traditional K2F/E3L route with the FH or whether to upgrade to an Alton and then stick with the K2F or update to electronic ignition. To give an informed response to your question we need to know, on average, how many hours per week you will ride that bike...

Re: Black Ariel mudgard ?

For what it's worth, it looks very much like the mudguard on my 1928, including the position and shape of the mounting bracket, except for the rib that runs down the center. Mine does not have this rib, i.e. it is smooth on the top.

Re: New to the forum - 1927 SS restoration

The thing I am short of is any sort of manual or information on stripping the motor, any thoughts where I can obtain any info ?. You can find a very detailed description of my total rebuild of a 1928 Model C here: http://www.britbike.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/691207/1928-ariel-model-c#Post69...
