Re: 1010 prototype

It's not the new version JB it's the old original beauty.

With the French Advancer needing so much love and my Royal Enfield being my daily driver and as Interceptors are cool my 69 MK2 may make some appearances too ... maybe time to clear some of the bikes that I am no...

Re: Subs and newsletter

As always I am happy to add a few notes together on my rebuilds and engines in work and I have felt the pain too. I have gone from putting on the rotary stand at the Kempton show and Popham to just Popham now and this year so far has only had a reply from JB. Hopefully we can get some interest up wi...

Re: Commander will not idle when hot

Concur JB idle control pipe o rings always worth a look as per my first post.
I have found a few incorrectly fitted pipes as well as they are easy to bend with a bit of ham fistedness....
Once bent they don't sit in the the o rings and hey Presto no idle.
Keep us updated

Re: My old IP2 on eBay

Note he has now got back at long last and I guess it's a genuine sale but I won't be bidding as his answer was not as genuine. If anyone does win the bike on here I am happy to go over the bike and set back up. I think I still have some original seats if a standard rider part is required. Shame he r...

French Advancer

For those who read my article some years ago in the club mag or in Real Classic Magazine the mythical Sachs engined bike is at long last resting in my workshop.

Re: Commander will not idle when hot

I did offer to overhaul it never mind... It's more likely to be air leaks on the idle control pipe o rings or the choke circuit o rings in carb etc. There are a number of reasons for not idling and you really need to check carefully and follow Startrights fault diagnosis download from their website....

Re: My old IP2 on eBay

Yes correct I owned that bike about 10 years me thinks. I am now not sure this is genuine as the seller has not answered three of my emails about the bike to maybe purchase back. Why would you not answer and how come you are correct that sold fair and square and now not completed ? The buyer had goo...

Re: Commander engine noise

Yes absolutely if the bike has been standing for some time clean out the primary case and the tensioners as they can stick and need cleaning and priming with clean oil to tension correctly. Make sure you clean the magnets properly while there too.

Kempton Park have been calling me if we still want a stand at the spring Classic.
I am not keen after last time as Mortons name things very hard work.
Let me know if anyone is keen and I will see what I can do
