Re: Warm and Sunny!

Yes, let’s hope the weather holds but we usually don’t know for sure until the day arrives. The mirrors are standard OEM items which I bought from a fellow member but I have them fitted to billet mirror extenders which raise and widen the mirror by around 40mm. This was the first ride out with the n...

Warm and Sunny!

Such a nice day today that I had to get the A1 out for a thrash into Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire.

Only did about 50 miles but really enjoyed it and the bike is running better than ever after a good carb balance!

Nice looking bike and the pipes look mint! I’d keep it standard though or at least make any mods reversible!

Hi Oggers, did you really bin your US high bars? I like the high bars. If you still have them how much do you want for them?

Re: Z1-B rebuild - carb renovation

In the link, referring to the table of dimensions for the #5 series needles the dimensions for the 5J9 needle look a little strange. D2 is 2.52mm dia, D3 is 1.432mm dia and D4 is 1.996mm dia. Could this be a typo and D3 should in fact be 2.432mm dia. It just seems strange that D3 is much smaller in ...

Re: Maggot...

I restored two of these last year, both exactly the same in every detail except that one was very early and the second one is a couple of thousand later. I’ve just recently done a very socially distanced sale on the second bike and that’s going to a good home just a couple of miles from me! It gives...
