Re: GEARBOX JUMPING in 2nd Gear ONLY

Hi Brian. There is no noticeable difference in the engine or gearbox in 2nd gear. The jerking happens at all revs in second gear. I held 2nd gear and accelerated up the rev range, the jerking was there until I changed up to 3rd. A friend who also rides Arrows had a thorough check of all the gears an...

Re: GEARBOX JUMPING in 2nd Gear ONLY

Hi Eero, the numbers on the top of the kick starter case are: GB55 C 60 L517. My engine is a Golden Arrow and the donor gearbox came from a standard 250cc Arrow.
Thanks, Terry.

Re: Temperamental Leader

Hi Trevorc. I had a very similar problem on a previous Arrow SS which I completely stripped and eventually found that I had standard piston rings on +20 pistons. New Suzuki +20 pistons cured the problem.
Good luck, Terry Langley

GEARBOX JUMPING in 2nd Gear ONLY

I have said jumping in the subject as I cant think of a better way to describe it. After a rebuild all was well for about 150 miles. The engine is rebuilt with a gearbox from a donor engine which looked good when assembled and was changing gear nicely. Now in second gear only the engine appears to m...

Re: Recommended Spark Plugs

I did try to find and buy Champion N4G plugs but they were only listed as not available. Where do you buy yours Roger??

Recommended Spark Plugs

I have heard of different spark plugs being used by Arrow & Leader owners and would like to know if there is one make, type, number that performs better.
Thanks, Terry Langley.

A question on ignition timing methods

I have in the past set up the points and timing in accordance with the workshop manual and all has been well. As an experiment I then adjusted the timing by rotating the points back plate with the engine running at normal operating temperature until I got the smoothest idling in the same way you adj...

Re: Arrow Front Brake

Hi Rodger.
I bought it off e-bay in the hope I could make it fit so do not know the model of Suzuki. It is a 7 inch drum so is probably off one of the smaller Suzuki models.
Cheers, Terry.

Re: Arrow Front Brake

Hi Rodger. I had an Arrow front brake relined and machined to the drum diameter by Classic brake services. You only need to mail the brake plate assy if you do not want the drum machined. Mine was better but not spectacular. On my current project I have fitted a Suzuki TLS brake which is spectacular...
