NGK, Carbon and my W/NG

Since I've been retired, about 3 weeks now, I've been having a jolly time pottering about on a building project in the next town using the bikes for transport - beats paying for parking any day of the week. I've even managed to fix the idle on the W/NG - the pilot fuel passage I thought was clear wa...

Re: Front Forks

I see the drawing shows that the plug is 0.9" OD, and to the left is a end elevation showing two concentric circles, the large being 0.95" diameter. I assume this is the ID of the leg, and forms the passage for the rebound oil flow?

Re: Arthur Bourne trip to ISDT

Expect the worst and nothing will happen!

Re: Front mudguard

Ammeters

Folks,

Does anyone know about ammeter faces, what they looked like year on year? I'd like to understand what my various ammeter would have looked like.

Does anyone print ammeter dials?

Re: Improving the front forks

Hi David, It seems like us Arielisti keep our bikes for a long time. At some point I will need to look at the forks rebuild for my FH - and I am always interested in improving my bikes. My SQ4 is completely standard (except in the electrical department) so I would be interested in your views on damp...

Re: Square four mk1 frame

I remember the article on friction dampers David, but do you have any more details on the cartridge emulator you fitted?
