Re: Annual Rally.

Was great to catch up with some of the contributors to this forum and everyone else too! I’m very pleased to have completed 1144 miles on the bike, with minor issues, but as is consistent so far, that bike has never failed to get me home.

Re: spring washer on magneto sprocket ?

I’ve had several back from tony with the spring washer. Personally I have never been happy with the thread engagement if the washer is present, so I leave them off.

Re: Best plug for a 1955 NH

I had three plug failures in a row while using ngk plugs, couple of broken insulators and a broken electrode. I haven’t had a single plug issue since changing to Bosch

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on a mainly Ariel 2018

I’ve got the wrong dual seat on my VH too. Annoying because I had a spare and sold it because it was taking up space, that one was the right shape!
