Re: 389 Monobloc Leaking

Hi

Just a thought, but is the skimmed float chamber cover now restricting the float movement?

Address Decal Location?

Hi The 58 FH restoration is nearing completion and the decals are being applied but I'm struggling to find any reference to the original position of the address decal. I find references to it being on either the number plate or the plate to mudguard mount but have yet to find a photo or even drawing...

Re: Jammed Kickstart

Hi Is it jammed, (ie. you can't move it at all), or will it not engage, (ie. it moves down a little then jams)? If the latter, put the bike into gear and roll it back a little to move the gears, then put it back into neutral and see if it engages. If it does you can continue to go through this proce...

Re: gear change quadrant

Hi Johnny Sorry my mistake, just checked a GB box I have in bits at the moment and yes, it seems to be the same as yours, the bush is blind, but checking the photo of 3720-52, (which is the bush you mean I think), on Draganfly's web site it shows it to have a through hole. If you look at the Draganf...

Re: gear change quadrant

Hi Johnny

The bush is a top hat section fitted from the outside of the inner cover, it has no blanking cover and is removed by pushing from the inside of the inner cover.

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2020

The 3 small screw that hold the fork shrouds to the bottom yoke were hard work to remove. Hi Steven I have to admit I had one quick try at those and then left the shrouds in situ when I had my blasting / powder coating performed - couldn't see much point in struggling with them. Here's some of the ...

Re: Rigid Sqs

Hi Wade I'd investigate here to see if a replacement V5c could be obtained: https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-log-book This will preserve the number plate and confer it's ownership to you. I'd also investigate whether permanently exporting a vehicle preserves the number plate, (my reason for suggesting you...

Re: Rigid Sqs

Hi Wade I'm very keen to preserve the full history of the bikes I restore, so if it were me I'd keep the plate and if you don't already have one, get a copy of the V5c for this registration and declare it SORN, (Statutory Off Road Notification), this should keep the UK registration protected for the...
