    198 A

    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
  16. Just fitted a in motion electronic ignition with lights. Got spark fuel but will not start do I need a condenser with this ignition ?
  17. Thank you. For the reply much appreciated put the new in motion electronic ignition in this morning got spark and fuel but no start. ? just thinking I don’t need A condenser with the new set Do I will try again tomorrow. Got to ride my bike this summer
  18. Just bought a electronic ignition for one of my bikes and a kill switch from in motion 2 wires on the kill switch black with white stripe. And black with yellow stripe. Should it be black yellow earthed to frame ? Greg

    Colour

    Got my model 158 started today first time in a number of years. i was putting a kill switch on and putting the earth wire to the frame there are 3 colours on the frame but the bottom colour was dark blue. I think that was original. as it was a bugger to get to shiny metal. The bike was 1st registered in 1976. Would be nice if someone new the answer. Greg. R
  20. Christian thank you for the kind words. This my 3rd bulltaco my kids say there is something up with my head. They don’t get it I just love the bikes my new one the 80 i have managed to refit my home office to get her in. It’s just pure art. my others are waiting till I get round to doing them up. I’m not experienced or very confident so there will be a lot of asking for help on this forum. Greg.
  21. Thank you for that. Bought as a 350. Should have done some research first but love the bike anyway. Greg
