Re: Darmah dash connector / plug

So I'm clear -

Not looking for the metal-to-metal connector / pins. I have found a source for those. I need the actual plug.

Hopefully the foto will work...

Note the non-flat edge on one side?

Darmah dash connector / plug

Does anyone know of a source for the plastic multi-pin connector from the dash to the wiring harness?

I'd like to fabricate a new smaller dash (idiot lights and ignition key)and be able plug straight into the existing harness plug.

'81 TopTriple

I'd like to find a top triple clamp for my '81 Darmah. I bought one online - or thought - but it had the wrong offset. Guess I thought they (Bevels) all had the same offset..? Silly me :(~ Is there a definitive chart showing different chassis characteristics - rake, offset, etc. - for all the Bevel ...

Re: '81 swingarm help requested

Perfect.

Just what I was hoping for. Hadn't even considered loosening the engine bolts...

Your directions say to measure gap on both sides - if the swingarm slides on it's pivot shaft, wouldn't they be the same? Is there a determinent way to decide how much to shim per side?

Sorry if confusing...

Is there a site or write up on how to assemble, lube, and most importantly SHIM everything correctly?

Can you post (or a link to) a definitive How-to on how to do this adjustment? I have an '81 Darmah just getting back on the road (after a long storage) that just today started shifting as described...

Re: Reassembly of shifter mechanism. 1979 900GTS

Hey!

Any luck solving this?

I think my shifter return spring has gone south on my '81 Darmah. I'm happy that the cases won't have to be split, but would like to know how to do the work before starting...

That could be it. Don't forget to look at the filter screens on the Del Ortos (at the fuel inlet), Make sure the gas tank is venting correctly (poor venting - gasping - caused the exact symptom on another bike of mine), and the intake manifold gaskets. All easy to check, cheap to correct. I am finis...

Plug gap with Dyna coils..?

Those who've done the upgrade - do you run a wider than normal spark plug gap?

If so, recommendations?

Mine's a '81 with Bosch Ignition...
