    Yes only picked the bike up yesterday and the air box had fuel in it this morning. But I had left the tap open I don’t know if that would cause the problem. Thank you for your reply. yes will do will order a gasket set. just strange why petrol was in the air box. greg

    Hello. just acquired a nice 198A Just ordering some parts could anyone tell me what fork seals are required. also the mikuni carb is leaking but it is going into the air box taken a pc of the carb seems to be coming from the bottom is it a ball bearing ? I have ordered a new air hose as the one on is split . Any help would be appreciated Greg. R
  10. Thanks for the advice guys. Taken all the filler off looks like someone as tried to use solder as there are big blobs all over will have take some time and find the right person to sort it. I have a plastic spare for the time being. My other two bikes have fibreglass tanks they have been sealed but you can not leave petrol in them. The removal of ethanol looks good Do others use this process. thank you
  11. Well my 158. That I have owned for about 5 years and done nothing to it. Always been too busy. Proper chuffed kicks up on the 1st kick every time BUT now I have a petrol leek it’s an alloy tank but never looked very good on one side so off it came and stripped it. Wow what a mess someone has done just wondered can it be salvaged ? Nice to know what you guys think would really like to save it. Here’s a picture
  12. Thank you I have reset as woody said. Fired up and running a bit revy and a bit smokey. A bit more tweaking should get there. thanks sherpa325
  13. Thank you woody. I will reset it. I have 3 bikes to sort out. Somehow ?
  14. Whoops yes the back plate was in correct place I had the flywheel set on the key and no start and back fire so was checking other posts that said key not needed. So took it out and altered the stata. And fired up. Did I just get lucky and should I put the key back in and try again woody ? l know I’m a bit green but love spending time with the bike and learning from you guys
  15. Yes thanks for the reply’s. great bit of kit from in motion. Should be plug in and start. Went in garage for a few hours today. The woodruff key is not needed Carl. and as Johnjsy said if the timing is right it will fire. So I had to alter it just a little bit and it started up happy days. Again thanks for the reply’s picture of my 158
