Re: struggling at low revs.

Hi guys, thanks for the suggestions, took the carbs off today, removed the jets, nothing obvious? Gave then a clean anyway. Noticed one float was well down so reset it to 10mm ish. All back on and now running fine. :cheers:

struggling at low revs.

Afternoon all, went on a bit of a run out recently and noticed at lower revs the engine struggles when accelerating? Get over 2k and its fine, also popping a bit. Starts OK and Idle is fine once warm. Fuel was fresh. Ta for now.

Re: Loss of lights?

Okay, now have the lights working, it was a combination of a bad earth and loose bulbs. But now I only have high beam on one side? Any suggestions. Bulb looks okay?

Re: Trouble starting.

I did take the battery out the other night to help someone get started (no jump leads) It was lashing down and pitch black. I didnt hang around puttting the battery back, sort of threw it in and fumbled about with the wiring :oops: I will check the connections tomorrow. Thanks for the advice. :cheers:

Tracy Tools 01803 328 603. They sell everything under the sun tap/die related. But you will need to know what you want, BSP, BSW etc. a set of 1/8 is about £6ish they will also sell you the right tapping drill so your less likely to snap it off :evil:
