I agree about the AM26s. I fit them on all my bike over 250cc and find they improve the handling even on old Camels. GB is right about them not looking the part but what price safety. I don't bounce as well as I used to.

Tried to order from Brightsparks but they're out of stock of the k2fc type and the standard k2f are different. They've been waiting for delivery for a year. I'm hoping the Wassell c**p will serve temporarily .

normal return flow with air bubbles

i gave this some thought today and, as far as I remember, while it was idling in the garage the oil flow was regular, generous, pulses of oil squirting forcefully into the tank, it was idling for quite a while (10 - 15 min) while I tinkered with the carb to get a reasonable idle speed and I checked it again before going out.
After going round the block the oil was more of an intermittent frothy dribble.
My reaction at the time may have been slightly paranoid due to having seized more than one BSA engine in the early seventies but the point is I want any potential buyer to know that this bike could have a problem which they will need to investigate.
cheers

Does this look like a useful spanner for tappets?

Ah - sorry about that, I've been on other projects since and had forgotten what I had asked some years back - I've gone thru my posts and refreshed my memory. *smile*

the normans were decended from the norsemen (vikings ) and not French

well those Vikings did get around, did they settle in Normandy, hence the French tongue

Just received new Wassell pickup for k2fc. They're still fitted with the soft useless brushes. Luckily I've  spare Brightspark brushes to fit, but don't Wassell ever listen!

There's an in-depth topic on that here - (edit) If you don't want to read it all especially read reply 12, reply 24 to 44:-

Hi Reg

Not even sure I would fit the Wassel pick-ups. I changed the pick-ups, acorns and brushes for Brightspark supplied components and it transformed the starting and running.
If Wassel do not understand (or care about) the problems caused by soft carbon on the brushes then I doubt if they care about correct material being used in the pick-ups.
