Re: Speedo cable

I have heard that turning the fork legs to mount the calipers behind can force the speedo drive downwards, hence a longer cable is needed. Since you have turned them back the drive should go back into the correct horizontal position.

Hope this helps.

Re: Pot 3&4 running very hot

Thanks to everyone who posted advice on this problem. A mate of mine who has worked in a motorcycle garage came and checked out the carbs and much to my shame I still had a blocked jet on pot 1 but biggest problem was I had not set the float heights correctly, rookie mistake. Bikes now running well...

Re: Pistons

Why not ask him what make they are and where they come from?

Impex pattern ones from Japan are good value for money.

Re: Pot 3&4 running very hot

3 & 4 are working hardest which leads me to think that the problem lies with 1 & 2 carbs running lean or fuel supply. Compression is alway a good thing to eliminate but I feel it unlikely for mechanical failure to develop just from laying up over winter.
