  1. Icehopper I bought an ultrasonic cleaner, stripped and cleaned the carb and it’s much better though won’t tickover unless the screw is right in. I’m trying to get some new jets at the moment. Mick
  2. Thanks Carl, I’ll try it that way round - let’s hope it’s that simple!
  3. The guy I bought it from said up for starting, down for running, and once warmed up it runs a treat with the lever down which presumably it wouldn’t if it was being overfuelled by the starting circuit?
  4. Checked the float, it’s fine...
  5. Dark brown, no heavy deposits
  6. I have a 350 Alpina 213, history unknown but supposedly restored; it’s still got the original Bing carb. The bike starts after a few kicks but not with the choke - won’t start if you use it. More of an issue, though possibly related, is if I drop down to first for any difficult bits (I use it for greenlaning here) the motor doesn’t respond to the throttle, dies and won’t restart unless I give it a long bump. I’ve had the carb apart and cleaned it as best I can, air filter cleaned and oiled, and plug changed, though no further work done yet - any suggestions? I assume it’s running the original ignition setup but haven’t had the side off to check.
  7. Metisse I do agree with you, I find the long lunch break counter-productive, I just want to sleep after a good lunch! I’d rather keep riding
  8. Metisse I’m new to riding in France, but they seem to be more of a social event than we have in the UK, so maybe less sections (zones) are OK. At the trial la Roche en Brenil a couple of weeks ago I was surprised that no-one was in a hurry to start - in the UK on that sort of terrain you’d have been run over in the rush to get round... Rochepaule sounds like the sort of trial that was common in the UK 40+ years ago.
  9. Metisse Yes, it seems to be getting harder to get a ride in France now without travelling a long way. Talking to the guys at La Roche they were amazed the club I’m a member of in the UK runs 11 trials a year.
  10. Metisse Did you ride la Roche en Brenil last week?
  11. Would you mind letting me have details of them please?

    Ossa Mar Porting

    Woody Can't help with the porting question, I'm a bit technically inept; have you tried Steve Sell for the parts? Mick
  14. From the front forks and tank it looks like being a Mk1, though as you say many of the parts are not original. The good news is if your pockets are deep enough most parts are readily available, try Steve Sell Steve Sell <steve@marlimar-uk.wanadoo.co.uk> or Dave Renham at Inmotion. Good luck with restoring it.
