Hi David, Your question is a little confusing. There are no wires running directly to the battery from the regulator. The regulator has 4 terminals with 5 wires. Brown, red(2 wires), and 2 yellow. The 2 yellow and 1 red go the the alternator. The other red goes to the ignition switch. The brown goes...

I posted this in your pic thread as well. Finding a wiring diagram with the electronic tach is difficult (non existant?). How have you got it wired now? What color wires and where do you have them attached? That might help. You need two for the light, and one to transmit an exciter voltage from a co...

Hey Gum, You mentioned in another thread that you had a gap between the seat and the tank and that you had some adjustment moving the tank forward and backward. Check to make sure that when you turn the steering lock to lock that you have clearance and that the forks don't hit the tank. You will pro...

WOW!!, Thanks for the pics. Around here it is quite rare to see one let alone three. I know of one but it is not ridden. It's rare to see any round case for that matter. Only in Australia!!! A friend of mine is restoring a '74 GT (it will be very nice!). I have a '73 GT and I guess we'll be the only...

Re: Tar

Mine came with a side stand, I remember Robert saying, dont fit it, buts it rare so keep it. So I will keep it with all the other stuff that I have with the bike. Otherwise I would get rid of it as someone may be able ti use it, rather than it sit on a shelf and eventually loss. Thanks Gum Robert i...

Hey Shane,
You'll probably get around to checking the wires from the pickups. Deteriorating insulation is a common problem caused by the hot oil they are in and could cause what you have going on.
Keep us updated.

Hey Shane, We need more info. Do you have spark? (remove the plug, reinstall wire, ground and crank. Does it spark.) Is your battery up to full charge and holding it? Is the plug itself good? (did you try a different plug?) Have you pulled the case to make sure your pick up wires are still in good s...

Re: Bad 750 GT Frame Repair

Recently bought a complete but tatty 750 GT for restoration. Unfortunately it has had a very poor frame repair, which is holding together but looks dreadful. At some point the bike has suffered front-end damage and has snapped both front down tubes about six inches below the cross-brace. The repair...

Center bolt on clutch basket loosening? Was somewhat common on the roundcases. Could explain noise under load and no noise at idle. But will get noisier the more it loosens. As has been said already, could be your drive chain be contacting the engine case. Steve has a cure for that with the case sav...

Hi Stian, You didn't indicate which bike this is on. I assume a round case. Follow the wires from the tacho out to where they go. There should be two for the light and one or two for the tacho. The wires for the tacho will probably go to an ignition coil. I believe that the tacho is excited by the c...

Hi Stuart, You didn't mention it but does the bike run? If it runs start it up and get it hot. Next spray some penetrating lube at the threads ( be careful of flammability). When hot, the lube will be drawn into the threads. Next use your exhaust nut spanner and GENTLY tap toward tightening the nut....

Hi Bern, A couple questions first. Is the battery losing charge while sitting or while you are riding it? Check to make sure that your brake light is not stuck on while you are riding.(mine used to, killed the battery fast). What is the charge at the battery while it is idling? While at 2000rpm, 300...
