    Ignition Troubles {:-/

    From memory, you need to disconnect the black wire if you want the points to act like a switch.

    Ignition Troubles {:-/

    Even if you get it working its probably past its best, have a look at :- https://www.motoswm.co.uk/shop/swm-rotax-trials-electronic-ignition-kit-clubman/
  7. Was it smoke (ie from exhaust) or steam from engine / radiator ? Does the fan run ? Did you squeeze hoses to check for air locks ? Are you getting a spark ? Is the plug wet or dry ?
  8. Try putting the petrol on several minutes before trying to start it.
  9. Message Patrik.

  11. "lots of big words" conversation over, tawt.
  12. My friends nickname was the "clock", because he always thought before he acted/spoke. He was professionally involved with risk management, so lecturers on behaviour patterns are not required. I don't believe anyone with a modicum of intelligence, expects the general population to behave sensibly, however transferring all responsibility to the vulnerable is rather egocentric ?
  13. Excellent advice, but can you elaborate on how my friend recovering from cancer should "moderate his behaviour " ??
  14. Probably no difference in a hot climate, life and death in extreme cold.
  15. Speak to Gerry Minshall.
  16. If your drilling the rim to fit the locks, check where the join is as you obviously don't want to drill there. Good wheel builders generally put the joint opposite the valve hole. Most people run 2 locks on the rear, but 1 is fine. Choose the position carefully to give as much space as possible for the nut/spanner.
  17. @faussy one for you ? (more resistant to movement in high gears)
  18. Fuel starvation ? What carb is it, air screw Dellorto ? When your cleaning the carb are you removing the air/petrol screw and forcing carb cleaner through from every direction ?
  19. "If my pilot is a 33.....And I say if....then 50 does sound high, but if it works for you.?" Depends what elevation they are at.

    Rev 3 won't start

    Hopefully it was just flooded, was the petrol left on ? If it happens again I'd get it rewound.

    Rev 3 won't start

    Always try another plug. Is the plug wet or dry ?

    Rear shocks rates

    Beauty of rockshocks is spare parts if you damage them, easily serviceable, variety of spring rates if swapping to another bike and you can change the length if required.
