Re: oil return hoses

Not when you have the FB breather above :shock: On the 250 the primary is sealed, so some sort of breathing might be advantageous.

OK, tale of Woe: Wanting to go to the meet, and having thrashed my little Beesa all round Cornwall, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Paris, I decided to fix some of the things that didn't stop me riding, but would make riding a little less dramatic.

Re: Camshaft timing marks

Something tells me that it is something else. Does it fire at all? Cos with compression and fuel all you need is a spark to make it go bang. A timing disc on the rotor should give you a clue that the valves and spark are somewhere near.

Re: B50 FORK DAMPER MODS

I am at a loss to understand why you would want a multigrade fork oil, do you need different damping when the temperature changes? Or am I missing something? My simple mind says thicker oil equals more damping, thinner equals less. You can dilute monograde oils of the same type to fine tune your dam...

Re: Finally bought one: 1971 B25T

The oil filter was an option (on most bikes, standard on <12fs FS). The original oil filter is OK if you are going for originality, but a modern spin-on filter is more convenient and easily available. Traditionally they are fitted in the return side of the oil system, and it is arguable whether this...

Re: Crankcase Breathing

Try plumbing the rockerbox breather to the engine side of your valve. I think you are sucking air into the rockerbox and pumping it out of the valve.
