Das Bike Projekt: Back on Track

I started pulling the bike back down, I Tightened the loose timing chest. If I  forgot to torque it, or the gasket compressed over time, I do not know. Next step is do the compression test, check timing and valves, and have a go at the carbs.

Das Bike: Long Overdue Update!

ImageWell the bike has about 150 miles on it now, but as the summer wore on it got a little cranky, not wanting to rev over 4K. I have put a Uli Electronic ignition in it, but its still rubbish as far as running strong. More tinkering with the Dellortos in my future i suspect!
