Re: Speedo cable clip Sq 4 Mk II

here's the part number. 4842-32 speedo cable clamp and screw /081

Unless someone else has a better idea, I'll likely attach it to the upper engine mount stud. That will at least keep it from floppy around

Speedo cable clip Sq 4 Mk II

I just ordered a speedometer cable clip from Draganfly for my Mk II. Now trying to figure out where it should attach. I haven't been able to find a photo showing placement, most cables seem to just blow in the wind as mine does.

Perhaps bolt it underneath one of the front engine mount studs?

Re: Plunger suspension ride height adjustment

Thanks for all the expertise on this subject. I've ordered the heavier gauge springs from Draganfly (apparently the only version they carry), and will report my results when they arrive.

Re: Plunger suspension ride height adjustment

Wow Adrian.. thank you so much. I have found on several occasions inaccuracies with the listings, but I guess we should all just be thankful there is a Draganfly at all. I am going to just get those on order. I have a number of other small items to purchase, so this will be my incentive to move forw...

Re: Plunger suspension ride height adjustment

Yes, after conversing with a US owner, I put the bike on the rear stand which showed then about 3/4 inch reveal of that lower flat spring.

Hard to imagine anything assembled backwards as the spring seems to be symmetrical, nothing much else in there?

Re: Plunger suspension ride height adjustment

Thanks for the responses. To Roger, I did consider moving the silencer strap up a bit, just hated to leave bare metal on my new, chromed mounting tab. And, no, I don't have the passenger pegs installed, and never intend to carry a pax. Here are additional photos of the entire suspension, both sides,...

Plunger suspension ride height adjustment

Just getting my '53 SQ 4 MK II back on the road after a 2 1/2 year slumber. The plunger suspension seems to be in decent order, but I find the ride height is so low that my stock-mounted pipes drag the ground even under the most minor lean in a turn. My 205 lbs fat ass doesn't alleviate the situatio...

Re: help sq 4 wont run

Not to rain on your parade, but you MUST tear down that engine and clear the oil passages and sludge traps in the crankshaft before further running. Don't ignore the advice you have received from numerous other experienced owners. Ignore this and you are almost certain to end up as I did.. I forged ...

Re: new Sq 4 Mk II rebuild is running lean

Thanks to Paul Jameson for the suggestion to solder a piece of brass rod to the idle mixture adjust screw. I found a rod at my shop the perfect diameter to hammer into the screw slot, and successfully soldered it into place. With the carburetor off, I learned that, during my carb "overhaul"...
