Re: End of restorarion shifting problems

I do like the pipe as built because it's out of the way of the gear pedal. Thanks for posting the pics - and what a backdrop!

Re: End of restorarion shifting problems

Any chance of a photo of the left side of the bike, showing the shifter linkage and gear pedal? And the detail of the steering damper and linkage? It looks quite a tidy build (except for the exhaust!).

Re: Replica Veglia tachometer

Brief update on the replica Veglia tacho. I emailed the seller. This is what he sent me. He said this is what the instrument actually looks like. So the Veglia logo IS on the face, and mounting points look ok at the back. The jury is still out on whether it works well or not... images (3).jpg images...

Re: Replica Veglia tachometer

Guys - thank you all for your replies. Graeme - I'd be interested to hear how you get on with your replica Veglia. Halfpast - does your replica tacho work ok - needle steady, accurate? What I will do is ask the seller for more photos of the actual instrument that he is selling and see what he comes ...

Replica Veglia tachometer

Has anyone read or heard reports about these replica Veglia tachos: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252680719378?ul_noapp=true I'm a bit suspicious, because of their sub-continental origin(!), which may seem unfair, but if the reports are good I'm prepared to change my mind. Were the original Veglias well...

Re: Super Stubborn Flywheel Nut

"instead of those rather ineffective tab washers." Did it back out with the bent tab? Brian The clutch centre nut did, yes, because the tang that engages with the mainshaft splines is ineffective. If there is even the slightest bit of slop on the splines, the tang tends to break or bend. ...

Re: Super Stubborn Flywheel Nut

That torque value of 75 ft-lbs doesn't sound too high. As a comparison, Norton specified 70 ft-lbs for the Commando alternator nut, which also secures the primary drive sprocket on the crank, and the Norton camshaft sprocket nut is listed at between 60 and 80. The Ducati nut has a fine thread and ca...
