Re: Oil Tank Cap

When I said I hadn't found an oil tank cap, it appears that I was wrong...

This is what happens when you collect bits over a period of years :

Re: SQ4 Misfire

Right, my fellow Squarielisti, I have news. First, the open circuit battery voltage is 6.2 V, on a bike that has not run for a week or two. I'm happy with that. Second, removing the tank, rocker covers & HT cabling reveals that the tired rocker cover seals (no one should use fibre gaskets at tho...

Re: Speedo gearbox question

I'd appreciate you summarising the gear teeth and the gearbox ratio as you see it Nev. I know that I have 14 teeth on the small gear (I have a picture of it) but anything else will need it to come apart.

The W/NG is my only running bike while I search for the misfire on my SQ4.

Re: Mystery Hole

Brilliant, thanks for that Simon. I'm just waiting for some help to get it up on the bench, and I'll have a proper look.

Yes, it's my W/NG Nev. I'll need to be counting turns and teeth next time I have the front wheel off.

Kill Buttons, switches and handlebars

Has anyone else got a kill button on the RH handlebar like this? IMG_20181014_220518~2.jpg My LH bar has the horn/dip on the 'signet ring', but there is no hole on the LHS for the cable - the cable appears to run along the bar, and the signet ring is arranged for this. I've looked at my copy of the ...

Mystery Hole

Folks,
I found this hole:

Actually along the decompressor shaft? good idea, I'll have a look. Did you turn a groove in it?

Leading Light

IMG_20181013_184356.jpg Some while back, someone on the forum (I think it was Steve Carter) mentioned extending one's headlight cables to allow the headlight to be used as a lead light. I did that a while back and tested it out after a run today, albeit in my garage. I'd just like to say, what a gr...
