Re: New VB piston

here you go. mine from 2 months back.
Off one of my russian bikes, that I was running in. I suspect I had the timing over advanced, after failing to understand that there was a limiter screw in the points assembly.

Got to this point in less than a hundred miles ...

Re: Ariel Toolbox ???

There you go.
Wrong holes welded up, new holes for correct brackets and new tab welded underneath. Sorted.

Just need (eventually) one of those lever toolbox knobs

Re: Ariel Toolbox ???

yeah.
It's got the end bit, for the chain, inside too.

I've cut the tab off and I'll weld another in the right place and remake the holes for the brackets.

Well odd.

Re: Ariel Toolbox ???

I get that it might be slightly different, but it doesn't have enough holes in the top either ?
There should be two on the back and two on the top, for a rigid, or four on top for a plunger ?

Re: Idle W/NG

With a worn carb/slide, the idle speed will vary. You can stop and it'll idle perfect, next time it's racing and next time it stalls.

Re: kg500 not charging correctly

If your dynamo is installed on the bike and you join the F&D wires, and then rev the bike, the voltage should scale beyond 9v. If it does scale beyond that, then you can likely believe the dynamo is doing it's job. Check all the wiring for continuity, dynamo to regulator, regulator to earth and ...
