Re: Holding clutch in and oil supply

I also fitted larger ball bearings, it made no difference.

I find neutral as I come to a stop, if I miss the chance I stop the engine with the stop/run switch, get neutral restart, it works for me.

Re: Blue Commander

My Commander is red. My wife thinks she remembers you possibly sat opposite you during the award ceremony if you were wearing a hat with lots of badges and you talked about a petition asking the club to offer ladder badges then we have met.

Re: She eats sparkplugs !!

C7E is a hotter plug than C8E. An uncontrollable tick over is usually air leaks, you say you have changed the O Rings on the induction tubes, what about where the carbs connect to the plenum chamber, air leaks anywhere along the air inlet route will give a high tick over. What oil are you using in t...

Re: Going to a rally

Oil tank capacity is 4.0 litres say 3.5 useable, for that amount I would get close to 3000 miles. I also carry a litre spare where the LH second battery used to be and another litre in the LH cubby hole.

Hope this helps.

Re: Water pump seals

Paul,

Yes it very important that you do add some kind of sealant where the fixed part pushes into the casing, I use blue hylomar but anything will do.

While you are in there it would make sense to fit new bearings and lip seal.

Re: NOC rally in Sweden

John,

As I live north of Aberdeen I will take the Newcastle to Amsterdam ferry. I have reserved two hotels one on the way and one on the return leg pricing seems to be in line with Premier Inn here in the UK.

I will be with my wife and camping to keep the costs down.

The seal is the wrong way round, the brass looking section presses into the pump housing.

Re: Indicator problem.

Phillip,

Do you have a wiring diagram? if so you will note that item 58 flasher relay has three connections not two as your bike.

My advice would be to reinstate the system as per the drawing retaining the flasher cancel unit, which works OK on my Commander

Re: IP II Carburation Issues ??

Dave,

Type "Bias" into the search bar where you will find a lot of good info on this subject.

My workshop manual lists the main jet height at 3.10mm, that is what mine are set to and I have no issues with how the bike runs.

BTW my average fuel consumption is 47.36 MPG
