old dog - new tricks?...

On test in Boyton Forest Suffolk 
 Most days we go out in the afternoon last week plugs gapped at 18 thou did make a difference.
But not for long.
 Change the points to a Fairbanks Morse set, as starting cold warm hot a pain - and it works
 meet clive head honcho @ So-Low Choppers and good friend for brunch on Sunday
 and his son Jay
 and Martin who all watched me start the Bitch and took twelve kicks warm after fifty miles
which is half what it used to take warm after 50m here.
Later in the week she would not start cold. 
On test in Laxfield Suffolk with fresh plugs out of the same packet!
 and she starts every time one/two kicks hot 
on test  Tunstall forest yesterday (Saturday) 30 miles
 starts ok on 2 starts hot - a few kicks and fires on 3rd time  and then won't at all 
 so we take a few pics in between trials
 Fresh New plugs and one Kick

What a difference a week makes….

 Had the CV apart again and fixed the overflow on the bench 
 We won Best Custom at Lowestoft on Sunday
Mainly because she would not start and we stayed for the judging -and because my mate Clive on his beautiful Chop, arrived late!
 The bridge at lowestoft and one of those Trike Things
Our Best 'Custum' Prize
 lovely bike - a 'Levis' (pronounced 'leh-vis') at orford bike night
 Removed the mufflers as had to rejet the super E again. I realised the reason I had put them on - to get more back pressure and help tune the carb was totally wrong. They are just a pipe wrapped in fibre - a muffler. The other is a baffle made by Kromeworks for drags  that I had on originally.
 So put the baffles in and went for a spin. 
 What a difference. Deep sound and real smooth. 
 Went down two jet sizes and hardly any coughing - runs great.
Mark at SoLow Choppers marvelling at the Mag powered bike that starts!
