  1. Any wise words on front wheel bearings chaps? Just had mine collapse for the second time this year.

    199A Fork Flex?

    Thanks guys, was thinking improved fork bracing would help.

    199A Fork Flex?

    Evening Guys, are Bulto forks inherently 'wobbly' only really noticed since I have been trying harder sections and particularly rocks but at times it seems like the front wheel is pointing in a different direction to the bars, everything in terms of clamps and spindle is tight and as it should be?
  4. Without starting a new topic, any thoughts/comments on moving the footrests back a bit on a 199A?
  5. Happy New Year to all. About to have a go at the fuel tap on my plastic tank, it's the 2 bolt type and seems to have a rubber gasket which is hanging on by the skin of its teeth. Any top tips for repair?
  6. Went through a similar mind bending situation with a C15 before realising that the engine is actually offset in the frame. As with the previous post key alignment issue is the chain run. If you still need clearance it may be a case of adjusting the relationship between the hub and the rim by adjusting the wheel spoking.
  7. Any recommendations for best spark plug to use with a C15, PVL Ignition?

    Clutch Plates

    Shouldn't really be a problem where the screw is as it only adjusts the clearance between clutch centre and push rod. Should be set to give a couple of mill free play at the clutch operating arm. Differential between slip and drag is then set up on the clutch springs (nut variety not cup and pin).
  9. Sorry Taff, just ordered directly from Dave Renham didn't measure it. Bondy, I would suggest some combination of a piece of inner tube and some cable ties.
  10. Lot easier than I thought, used an exhaust spring puller to ease the seal out, no problem at all.

    No need to panic, parts received, job done, usual great service, thanks guys.

    Anyone know if they are operating this week? Phone seems to be constantly engaged.
  13. Is it feasible to replace the oil seal behind the gearbox sprocket on a 199 without splitting the engine?
  14. Can anyone help please, I have an Amal concentric carb, looks like a Mk 1.5 concentric with the choke lever, the body has a cast number 625 with L1 stamped to the left of it and number 1 below the 6. Can't work out from the Amal website exactly which type it is 1600 or 1900 to order spares. Any advice gratefully received
  15. All sorted and running, thanks for the help :-)
