Out on the WNG

Took the old WNG out today to re visit one of the old British barracks on the island. Weather was great so I just had to :)

Re: Won’t start after hot

With regards flooding, I’m running the bike on an AMAL concentric carb, runs great and I do have the decompressor all intact.

Re: Won’t start after hot

Thanks again for all the replies, looks like the mag will need a rebuild.

Re: Won’t start after hot

Thank you for the replies,
The problem only just started with the plug.

Any recommendations please?

Won’t start after hot

Hello all, So my W/NG will (mostly) start first kick from cold but after I go for a little ride and the engine warms up it won’t start again unless I change the plug, (so I now carry a spare plug) what is causing this to happen??? After the plug cools down it’s good to go again. Thanks for any advice.
