    St300 running too hot

    Sounds like it’s running lean.
  2. Float height set too low maybe?

    197 8e advice please

    As above could be any number of things but I would start with fuel flow - Dump the existing fuel, rinse any crud out from the tank, strip and clean the carby, Here's a link that might help. https://www.motorcycleclassics.com/mc-how-to/amal-concentric-carburetor-overhaul Cheers

    Keihin Carb to Airbox Seal?

    Hairdryers work to make rubber a bit more pliable - steam not so good, water and carbies don't really get on very well.

    There should be a washer, poke around with a fine screwdriver and see if you can hook it out. Assuming you have the correct flywheel puller you undo the centre bolt, screw the puller body in as far as it will go and then fit the centre bolt and keep screwing it in until the flywheel pops off. Keep an eye out for and don’t lose the woodruff key that positions the flywheel on the shaft. Cheers
  9. Sorry if I offended you, no intent to do so. My apologies and don’t let a whimsical comment keep you from posting here there is a wealth of knowledge, advice and encouragement here, along with a smattering of ****ocks. Cheers
  10. Just in case you weren’t aware, the Bultaco factory mixed paint ‘by eye’ which means that in terms of RAL or any other colour measurement system ‘spot on’ is but a whimsical notion. 🤓

    4RT rear mudguard sticker

    Top tip is make sure that the guard is really clean and free from grease - use a pre paint cleaner or carb cleaner, don't try and stretch it and pay attention the any sharp corners or edges on the sticker as they catch first on your clothing.

    Throttle cable

    Depending on how far forward your bars are set if forward twist the throttle so the cable outlet is more upright and run the cable behind the bar pad
