  1. What Did You Do To Your Bultaco Today?

    Bought this little gem last week. One owner from new , never trialled, bash plate and cases are unmarked. 1150 farm field miles since 1979. Completely original condition. Rear shocks work perfectly and the engine sounds superb, really crisp.
  2. Do I keep it or sell it?

    Just thinking the same. Picked this original 1979 325 Sherpa up this week. One owner from new, never trialled, bash plate and cases unmarked. The engine sounds superb, just needs a bit of TLC. Done 1150 miles. All original. Was going to coat it in duck oil and sheet-it up for this winter project.
  3. 2016 Beta Evo 4T Carb Breather.

    Thanks JM, it is possible it’s flicked off when I was wrestling with it, getting it out.👺👺 Ill have a good luck around the work area where I was, but I’ll replace it with a stronger replacement cap.
  4. 2016 Beta Evo 4T Carb Breather.

    A perfect example of when you should not take a carb off/apart when your tired. Took my Mikuni BSR carb off my 4T to give it a routine clean. No problem, stripped cleaned, put it back on only to be left with one question. Theres an elbow on the throttle side of the carb that exits from the carb body at the top near the diaphragm , probably half inch in diameter. It appears to be a breather elbow that runs directly into the carb, just below the diaphragm . It looks like a breather pipe should connect but I can’t see one on the bike thats become disconnected . When it’s on the bike the elbow is tucked right out of the way and hardly visible. Has something come off mine that I havent noticed. It doesn’t look like it can be left open as it would allow water and muck into the carb. What should connect to the elbow guys, I’m 🤔 stumped. Can’t find a diagram anywhere to check it. Could be it needs a cap on it. Could any 4T owners please just have a look at their carbs when they have a moment and check what , if anything connects to it. It would be a great help.
  5. Is this a slow action throttle? EVO 300 4T

    Hi luckydim, In my opinion, this Amal is one of the better slow action throttles, I've got it fitted to my 2016 4T. It's aluminium not plastic and transforms the bike.
  6. 2016 Evo 4t fork oil Quantity.

    Hi Carlos, not sure if mines ever been changed so assuming its original factory fill. But I do find the forks to be soft for my tender 17.5 stone frame, so i'm going to try 10w, thinking the original was probably 5w. If its no better, probably going to go for the stronger spring option.
  7. 2016 Evo 4t fork oil Quantity.

    Thanks thall1, I've seen the UK manual but the oil value is in a mm measurement , I was after a fluid value i.e. How many cc or ml per leg. Or do you mean millilitres not mm ??
  8. 2016 Evo 4t fork oil Quantity.

    Sorry if I'm duplicating a thread, I have searched first, I was sure I'd found an entry where someone had converted the measured value into a quantity per leg. Well I couldn't find it so can anyone help with the per leg quantity of fork oil. Never feel as sure I've got it right with the measurement as I do with a quantity value.
  9. SWM clutch springs?

    I ve got a pair of Domino levers, just put a full new set of springs in and a new Venhill cables on order. The full set is on advice, also a good start point to work from.
  10. SWM clutch springs?

    b40r, Bought it as a renovation project for winter so haven’t ridden it in anger , just pottered up the drive twice on it before I stripped it. The clutch was difficult to say the least. Im just rebuilding her, hence the questions. Ive oiled the cable, cleaned the mechanism inside the clutch case and cleaned , decontaminated the plates. Ive been advised to use a light gear oil, 75w!!!! What do you use? The clutch basket fingers are quite notched, will I be ok grinding the ridges off, I mean with a Dremmel and gently ?
  11. SWM clutch springs?

    b40rt, Thanks for that in depth reply, 😆😆😆😆 Only joking just asking before I make a decision.
  12. SWM clutch springs?

    Sorry it’s a TL 320.
  13. SWM clutch springs?

  14. Splitting the TL 320 Engine.

  15. Splitting the TL 320 Engine.

    Thanks Martin, When I split it which crankcase do you leave the gearbox in, flywheel side or clutch side, or will it not sit in one? Thanks.
