AS/AD, BS/BD, CS/CD etc

Hi Håvard. Yeh, I'll go along with that explanation! (There's what I have before thought was an explanation in the Dello'Orto manual - go http://www.guzzitech.dk/05/05-10/05-10-01.htm. But it doesn't really work :) :? ...) Thanks for the website link - haven't seen that one before. Regards Craig in UK

Hi Håvard

I also used to think it was that simple, but, like Steve says, it doesn't seem so ...

For example, the later Darmahs had carbs called CD & CS. But the mounting wasn't any different from the earlier AD & AS models ..

Urh?

Kickstart gear

Hi Mike Who have you tried? For example, I see Andy Nienhagen has them listed, go http://www.desmo.net/pricelist.htm. And Phil Hiitchcock at Road and Race is always a good source for this kinda stuff. Go http://www.roadandrace.com.au/cat16.htm. Like he says, "Huge range of gears, bevel sets, be...

Stuck mixture screw tip

Hi Rick
I was trying to think of some way to get some suction going.
Borrow the vaccuum cleaner ? Just need to fashion up a little nozzle to fit on the end ...

Oil pressure

Hi Laurence Remember, the lubrication system in these engines is of the 'low pressure*, high volume' type. So what you should be looking for isn't so much pressure, but rather a flow like someone turned on tap (or faucet, depending on your country of origin ...) For an early diagnosis - and also fro...

Stuck mixture screw tip

Hi Rick How frustrating! Some thoughts ... As designed, the tip itself doesn't locate into anything - it simply juts into a small passageway within the carburettor body (screwing the screw in/out determines how much of this passageway is blocked/left open and therefore the amount of fuel-air mixture...

Reg/rectifier for singles

Good move, Roger.

Frankly, I don't think you need more volts than that - after all, these bikes don't carry much of a electrical load (unless you've fitted heated handle grips and a CD player? :-D )

If you do ever come up with an alternative reg/rectifier, do let us know ...

Alternative reg/rectifer

Hi Roger I assume you've got 6 volt electrics? If so, I'm not aware of any alternative reg/rectifier, altho' I'm sure there must be one and others on the Forum may know better :-) They do turn up occasionally on eBay, but these are also most likely to be fried if, and again I'm assuming things here,...

Front end wobble

Hi Dave, With respect to Peter, I still don't think you should be getting wobble from your 83 MHR. I know the later frame has a reputation of not being so good, especially with the Mille engine, but for several years I had a MHR from the same year as yours and it never wobbled, at any speed, under b...

Exhaust nuts

Hi Dave Don't quite understand ... You say you BROKE a proper spanner ...? For real?! Surely not ... the exhaust nuts are plated brass, the proper spanner is quality steel. Does your spanner look like this? http://www.mdinaitalia.co.uk/tools.html? If not, you ain't go the real thing. I can't see how...

Wobble

Hi Dave,

Well, handle bar wobble is classically caused by worn or loose head bearings. Other causes can be a worn tire, incorrect pressure, wheel out of balance, wheels out of alignment.

P.s No, Bevels do NOT wobble.

Plug fouling

Hi,

Just a UK perspective ...

My SSD doesn't like Shell Optimax or BP Ultimate or Castrol Valvemaster Plus. Bogs and fouls plugs, worst on Optimax, least on Valvemaster.

Strange, 'cos my RGS Corsa is better on Shell Optimax ... but also doesn't like the Castrol or BP Ultimate.
