That'll be the indicators sorted

    No wonder the Morini indicators didn't want to play. Someone had stuck
    6V bulbs in there which did make for a bright, exciting but ultimately
    short life.

    Apart for the bulbs and the fact that one of the cables was broken, I
    still haven't found any major desasters. Inlet valves were a bit
    loose, outlet valves a bit tight, and of course the thread in one of
    the holes for the valve cover bolts is stripped. Hooray. Not
    unexpected (they all do that - Weggy, careful when doing those bolts
    up) so it looks like it'll want an insert. Ah well, I guess that can
    wait until I get the heads gas flowed.

    I'm beginning to get worried. Apart from the duff oil pressure switch,
    plugs with the wrong heat range (BP6 instead of BP7) and a resistor
    plug cap where there shouldn't be one, I can't find anything wrong
    with this bike.

    In this weather it even starts first kick without choke.

    It's running too rich then.


    ZZR1100 and Enfield 500 Curry House Racer "The Basmati Rice Burner" (No , I'm
    not sure how that happened either).

    Nigel Eaton was seen penning the following ode to ... whatever:
    It isn't, it's just too frigging hot outside. On these you normally
    need the choke on both carbs on up to about 15C, choke on one carb up
    to about 25C...
