Re: head lamp

Hi Beat

Please can you confirm the diameter of the headlight; it's probably 7" (178mm). I'm looking for 8" (204mm) diameter

Re: BSA stuff

I don't mean to 'rain on the parade' but part of the reason some of you are struggling to find suppliers is that the rights to the use of BSA logo are protected by trademark legislation.

Any further news on the beehive springs? Assuming you can source the correct size and rate of springs, any thoughts on where to get the reduced size valve caps and retainers (collets) or can R/D do the whole package?

Re: New Clutch for B40

You should not get any problems with the alloy clutch baskets currently available on ebay etc. as they go through a hard anodising process which creates a layer of material that has a better wear rate than the OEM product

Stan knows what he's talking about. It may seem like a daft idea but it worked for me. Once everything is installed give the end of the kickstart shaft a smart whack with your BFH in the direction of the gearbox mainshaft. It has the affect of re-aligning the mechanism
