    What does one think....

    It is an interesting topic. We’ve just ridden in the NSW State Twinshock Champs which was two day event in a beautiful part of the Hunter Valley and a 5 hour drive. They ran 7 yes 7 sections on day 1 with 6 laps and an enforced lunch break of 1 hour . A very neat trick was to ride the afternoon lap sections in reverse direction. Day two 5 laps five sections. Was it enough riding? Well no one complained - in fact quite the opposite....

    Bsa Bantam kickstarter.

    The Gas Gas kickstart is not a direct replacement it needs modification. You need to check the shaft spline size too as there are two different sizes.

    One for the anoraks

    Here's another one... did you know that that more than 1/3 of the riders currently running are over 40? there's hope for the oldies yet Or... it's a statement of what's happening to Trials

    St300 running too hot

    Sounds like it’s running lean.
  6. 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

    Never a good plan to seal up breather holes.

    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
  13. 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
  14. 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. 🤓

    Keihin Jetting for 300.

    Magic numbers on the Sherco 300 for me were 122 and 42. Cheers
