Thanks guys, well she passed the MOT, is now Insured and Taxed, just waiting for the better weather, still a few teething problems, with running issues but hoping to rectify, I’m thinking of changing to an electronic ignition.January 14, 2016 at 10:41 pm #68931RadarModerator

Great news, you will have to join for a run up to the cafe near Bridgnorth. I will bring out the 550 so you have some aircooled company!
Electronic ignition might be a good call, not sure where you might gwt a kit for the 400/4. I think it was a relatively common mod back in the dayJanuary 15, 2016 at 7:48 am #68932HellsbellsParticipant
Thanks Radar, look forward to that.
The bikes having a few teething issues, mainly when Jaimo that’s the guy who’s finishing the bike for me, takes it for a spin, when the engine is hot and at a junction he has to really rev it to pull away. On checking the points they seem to have a white film on them like if a spark plug runs abit lean. The carbs have also been playing up, so they’ve been stripped again and the jets double checked and the floats, they’ve been set up by a strobe, I did have them ultrasonic cleaned last year..
I have asked him to put an inline filter on as the float bowls did have some crap in them, the tanks so old and when I bought it, they had respayed it but got paint in the tank, along with some rust. I’m hoping the filter will help.
I have googled David Silver and they do an electronic ignition for just over £100 so I’m going up later tonight to have a chat about it.
So looking forward to having it back but got to make sure everything is spot on before I ride her.
