Re: Drags Electronic Ignition Mk11 ignition light

Keith I've contemplated fitting one of these kits but wondered if there were any discernible benefits and what were the disadvantages. Does the unit drain or require more current etc . Also be good to know in what way is your square 4 better. Better idle, pick up etc. Any advice would be good before...

Re: MKII Square with swingarm

Herb all the advice offered is good. Strip it down for peace of mind. I think you have bought a lovely looking bike. I really like the lines, and with the swinging arm and twin leading shoe it must handle and brake well. What you have is how the factory should have developed the square four, but unf...

Re: SQ4 Misfire

Simes the bike sounds great on the video - slightly better / even tick-over than mine and mechanically quieter (also my exhaust pipes are a bit more raucous ) Was it fairly cold when you let it idle? Hopefully your mis-fire has gone, but now I have heard how mechanically quiet your bike is I might l...

Re: SQ4 Misfire

Hi Simes I have an AO working well but on fast tick over I'd be very lucky to get 6.4 volts. My voltmeter is direct across the battery so possibly some juice is diverting and working the ignition (meaning the voltage output from the dynamo is higher) Either way it doesn't misfire or cause problems, ...

Re: 4G revcounter drive

What a clever idea, and tucked away quite neatly!
Most smiths revcounters work on 1/2 speed readings though (to my knowledge) anyone know of a 1:1 ratio ?

Re: square 4 conrods

they are dear to replace, but when done will give you peace of mind with one less thing (or should I say four) to go wrong once you have finished your rebuild. If you cant afford them look carefully at your existing rods for any defects, knocks etc where weak spots can get worse due to age. As Paul ...

Re: electronic regulator problem

all after getting Alan Osbourne to check the unit it seems my electronic regulator is okay. Refitted it today - no joy, so I went for broke. I swapped the Dynamo and field leads over and hey presto - we have life. Took the bike for a run and all is very good with a steady charge and no issues. My pr...

Re: electronic regulator problem

Paul
the joys of british biking!
I think you are right -a duff unit. I will try an old wasell reg I have lurking in my garage and see what that does.
Failing that I have one which works well on my panther M100 which I could substitute for a test
Cheers

Re: electronic regulator problem

Simes
my ears aren't that good
Its only when I turn on the ignition but before I start her up. Its easy to not hear it at all, but turn the ignition off and then on and you can just hear the noise
definitely not the early stages of tinnitus
