Re: Missing bracket? Classic

Hi Jannes
It's an "L" shaped spring loaded strut/clip, to hold the rear folding section of the mudguard up, when removing the wheel.
Hope this help.

Re: Classic Petrol Tap

Thanks for the replies guys.
I guess I'm just being paranoid about the tap.
Interesting point about the "prime" position though, I just have the two position on my tap - pointing down for "main" and pointing forward for "reserve"

Re: Classic Petrol Tap

Thanks John. I was thinking along similar lines myself, re fitting an intermediate tap. I've not had a problem yet, although I do worry about the vacuum tap leaking when stood for long periods. The other issue is that if the bike has been stood for a while and the fuel has evaporated from the carbs,...

Has anyone found an alternative (non vacuum operated) petrol tap to suit the Classic ?

Re: Classic owners!!

Hi Richard.
I've only just seen this. I'm sorry I can't help, as I'm also missing the certificate. (Classic number 11)
If you should happen to be able to reproduce a certificate, I would be very interested in one also.
Regards, Geoff.

Re: Cast Iron Discs

I've got classic number 11 and it has got cast iron discs with anodised spacers. I know these were original fitment to this particular bike, as I have a photo of it when it was nearly new. I turn the wheels a bit every week or so over the winter and don't have a major problem with rusting. Interesti...

Re: Balancing twin rotor idle models

Regarding dropping the reataining clip. If you tie a piece of thin/strong thread (I found dental floss to be ideal) around the narrow part of the clip & tie the other end to the clutch cable, then if you do drop the clip, it can be easily fished out again without burning your fingers. You can easily...
