Re: New member, '52 VH500

We often fitted pistons too much on the tight size to make them quieter so for ages they would tend to nip up when passing on a hot day. How much also depends on the skirt design, the alloy it's made from, whether it's been sleeved and if you pull a chair. I was as guilty as anyone but I've learned ...

Re: what makes it a red hunter

No mention at all of the Polished STEEL flywheels and conrods that only came out on SOME hunters. To me that's one of the most significant features especially if you are interested in competition. (other than trials where a heavier flywheel might be advantageous). Better finished ports and maybe the...

Re: died and woke up in Ariel heaven!

At least they aren't in chook sheds or in pieces in boxes rusting. When you get a bike, the easy part is pulling it to pieces. After it's gone through a few hands you really have a challenge with what's left. Nev

The frame's very short at the back so could be a VCH. Single front down tube as well. Nev

I suspect a lot of road users don't understand hand signals at all these days. I don't think they are taught or tested on. Nev

Re: FOR SALE : 51 Square

Yes . The centrifugal force separates the sludge and particles out of the oil and the left rear rod goes out of the case every time. With a motor like this it's a certainty to happen.. Take the screwed in plugs out and get the motor scrupulously clean then ride it. You don't have to recondition the ...

Re: Sleepless Night

Yes, I'm sure they would not be popular with a lot of people. There's no shortage of them either and the Cops usually know who they are but must be able to make the charge stick. . WE have another 2 months of this left unless we get rain and that's not forecast. Keep safe . Nev

Re: BA Burman Mainshaft position

The NEW one I have is for a "BA" type (heavier shaft) .standard Ariel length. I WILL use it but find a different cage for the rollers(as shown in the drawings) It's for the short spline length clutch centre and therefore in the period you defined Paul. IF i didn't have the actual item I mi...
