Thanks a lot for your comments. I was fine with that sound, know it from similar engines but a friend made me nervous by complaining that rattling noise. Admitted valve clearence was a bit big . . . Ralf
Hello sound experts, due to not excisting references i want to ask if this noise is still acceptable? Valve clearance is adjusted to ,006 and ,008. I know similar engines with long pushrods (ride a german Horex Regina) never run noiseless. Ralf https://cloud.sumo-solutions.de/s/LZFcj5KSSALHT24
Dear members, i need an advise. Should i replace the rear tyre (picture attached). Its a Avon Roadrunner, tubeless, prox. 10 years and tubeless, its runnig with a VH500. Thanks for any recommendation. Ralf
Use LiFePo4 cells for more than two years without any problems in my bikes, Ariel VH500 and Horex Regina. Didn't change anything in the original systems, neither regulator nor dynamo. Use 4 LiFePo4 cells, each 3,2V, 3400mAh. 2 Units are wired serial and two sets of these parallel = total 6,4V, 6,8Ah...
Had a call today. Owner, 85 , purchased it 2 years ago as part of a collection. Due to his age he isn't able to ride it. His son sells the bike and can't tell any details. It was never fired up in this two years. Maybe i'm wrong but think i save my time and a 400km train trip - Ralf
