^^ Those fans (computer types/ PC case Fans) of Bearuno's above are the exact type fan/ setup I was on about and envisaging. They draw so very little current and are surprisingly effective. Amazing that they have lasted 9 years! They sometimes do not

I'll post up some pics(hopefully tomorrow) of a really simple mod that I think will work using these little Temp gauges installed into the discharge hose, would actually be about a 10 min job or less to install and finish. Installing the gauge once you

Yes - very good information, I did read some stuff on it a while back and there was a real lot to it and was sort of really interesting to read. I certainly for one, would not mess about cutting ally frames up and welding them with basic equipment in ... more »

How cool is that Stevie- rebuilding engines just aged 10! Figured you would give a good answer and story to the question, thats why I asked it! My Dad too was a BSA nut- not crossers but Goldstar roadracers, he had about 5 of them and some others. He

Just wondering- when you speak of the pressure the caps rated at, i.e 1.4, 1.6, 2 bar or whatever, what is that rating exactly? Does that mean it will leak/ discharge when it goes over those figures? Other ideas, not sure how you could implement them:- ... more »

Yes- Aren't the frames treated post welding by water treatment to cool the weld and in the cooling process the weld gains strength and integrety? I thought I read about this somewhere but do not know a great deal about alloy welding. Is it called Water ... more »

That is one pretty looking bike and looks really well done. Surprised you don't see a few more of the KTM/500 2T conversions opposed to the AF Japanese framed ones. I would pick a steely framed conversion over an AF, if I was looking to buy. Sort of ... more »

Haha- or if you don't want to do that, then just pop the spark plug out and pop the little screw down the hole, it will sort of "bed in" somehow when the engine runs and then the screw will be back in the engine where it probably belongs!
