Re: Primary chaincase disaster

There seem to be quite a few on eBay of various types and conditions. They do tend to be expensive though.

Re: Girder fork spring

I bought one of these springs some years ago for my VH and it seemed to be on the short side as I had to make a spacer for the top of the spring carrier to try and stop the forks bottoming out.

Re: 1931 Sloper driver seat elastics

You can buy similar rubber from most yatch chandlers and re-use the clips.
I remade mine many years ago and had no problems

VH Burman gearchenge problem

After a ride out on my 35VH the gearchange on the ride back would not change properly and the lever would not self centre. I stripped the change down back in the garage and could find no problem . Everything looks OK to me including the hidden detent spring. Has anyone any ideas? janets visit 007.jp...

Re: Secondary chain size on 1937 VB

My 35 VH has always had a 3/8x5/8" chain and the parts list shows 5790-33 rear chain 5/8 x 3/8

Re: 1937 VG500

I find members expectations most unreasonable in this . By all means point out non-standard parts for information but dont expect 100% originality if the bike is ever ridden it should be .

Re: Magneto sparks at points

I had one of these Brighspark condensors fitted some couple of years ago and the mag has performed faultlessly ever since.
