  1. Some kill switches are circuit open when engaged and some are circuit closed, you could try swapping the wires over that you fitted.
  2. Have two sets - one on a Bantam one on a TY - luv em.
  3. Thanks guys, much appreciated and thanks for the heads up on the smarts, I’m going to try one on the rear of one of my Bantams when I next change a tyre, so it will be a Tubliss Dual Chamber tubeless Xlite and Tubed rim. Be interesting to see how it goes. Thanks again, cheers Paulmac
  4. As above has anyone tried these - looks like a neat idea Cheers Paulmac
  5. Probably needs a better picture
  6. Check the vent pipe on the fuel Filler cap isn’t blocked, if it is you’ll get a vacuum build up in the tank and fuel won’t flow into the carby.
  7. Stilmotor guards from In Motion. Cheers Paulmac
  8. Thank you guys, your help is very much appreciated. Johnjsy great advice ? feet up fun they are parallel but cheers for the heads up. Once again thanks all. Cheers Paulmac
  9. Can anyone advise the size - diameter and pitch - of the thread at the fork tube top? Need to clean up a little whoopsie and can’t find the size listed anywhere. Thanks in advance . Cheers Paulmac

    M49 Carb leak

    The banjo’s have a habit of distorting, due to overtightening, three solutions, buy a new one, try and resurface it with 1000 grit on a flat surface or use gasket cement - I’ve tried all three numerous times - never been particularly successful with the resurfacing bit ?, hope this helps. Cheers
  11. It’s real easy to get the yokes out of line which will create friction. Try loosening the wheel spindle, guard stays and bottom yoke pinch bolts than give the handlebars a good shaking left to right and bounce up and down on the suspension, that should help to centre up the forks in the various attachment points. Clamp up the bottom yoke bolts then the wheel spindle then the guard brace hope this helps. Cheers
  12. Best set up I have found for a D14 includes the gear switch as above, Electrex World ignition, B175 centre plug head, Rex Caunt 187 cc big bore piston kit, standard clutch Drayton exhaust and air box, Amal Premier carb, 12 t primary sprocket Hope this helps. Cheers
  13. By level I mean the correct quantity. Do the above procedure before you start it. Bike on the ground with you on board and engine off. Pop it into 3rd or 4th gear - pull in the clutch lever and push the bike backward and forward with your feet - the clutch should release then you can start it. Cheers
  14. Jim, pop it into 3rd or 4th gear - pull in the clutch lever and rock it backward and forward - the clutch should release then you can start it. I'm sure an Ossa specialist will be along soon but try this. It does sound like your plates are sticking - have you tried the obvious - correct oils and correct quantities - correct free play at the clutch lever ? Hope this helps. Cheers Paul Mac
  15. Yes they are, the German one had the gear lever on the other side?

    Airoh TRR-S

    Paul Arnott at Hell Team in Sydney stocks them I think.
  17. Taken me a few years to answer this one but is the driver MIck Grant?
  18. Everywhere is long drive in Oz ?
  19. 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....
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. Sounds like it’s running lean.
  23. 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
