Looks nice, black forks and wheels with polished hubs might look good on her as well

Hi Lewis, a little late to the party but if you’re looking for jets for carbs I would recommend getting genuine Keihin ones from Allens Performance.

http://www.allensperformance.co.uk/shop/

I’m guessing you’d have PD slide carbs??? You’ll probably need to work out what type jets they’d be. I’ve had some good technical advice through emails from Allen’s though, so they may be able to help identify what type and based on what size you have where to go next.

I’d avoid cheap eBay copies. Ignore the price difference and get genuine.

Nice build so far man!! Keep it up!

Thanks for that. Will definitely invest in some from them.

Carb cleaning today.

Can't really see my jet size think it's a 92? Was thinking about going up 2 sizes to accommodate my velocity stacks. Can anyone confirm if this is advisable

Well that was entertaining.

Stripped all down until I go to number 4 float bowl drain screw was seized solid.
I soaked it in penetrating fluid.
Warmed it.

Then the head of the bolt snapped. So had to drill and easy out.
Except easy out didn't work. So drilled out to 5mm and still has remaining thread inside.

So need a replacement pd50 bowl. (I believe others like pd41etc will fit ) part number 16045-393-004.

Not really done much on the bike been so busy with work just not had the time.

But I have finally built carbs. What a pain in the bottom that was. I had most of it working fine except the choke. I checked over and over again and just couldn't work out why it wasn't operating.  In the end I found that the felt seals I made rubbed every so slightly (I mean like less than half a mm)
I ran a drill bit (no drill just through my fingers) and it worked,Just like that,Relief.

I bought a anti gravity battery a 4 cell race special xps one. Yes I should have bought the 8 cell but I made a slight mistake in my measurement (hense why you should measure a million times before cutting) and called anti gravity and he explained that the 4 cell would be ok for running the bike. Just not ideal if I was stop start (garage running etc) and that I should have a slave for that type of work.
He stated that in the tests they cranked over a ducati v twin 7/8 time for 10sec bursts and it still started a v8.
So hopefully that's a winner.

I do have a question about the dyna ignition?
I know I have an electronic ignition now but I wanted to upgrade and simpifly my ignition.
Dyna don't make one for my bike however I know the kit that would work requires some adjustment in the plate. The dyna one is 92mm and mine is 82mm so I would need to trim down.
But is it worth it?
I was going to replace coils anyway. But I wanted to remove the ignition spark units (cleaner wiring etc ) but no point if people say it's not work it.

Many thanks
