    Hi everyone, I'm hoping you can help me with this puzzle. 1969 T120 Bonneville, 750 conversion with Mikuni carbs. It previously ran like a champ, and now after sitting for two weeks it sputters and coughs under moderate load, though it kicks over and idles just fine. A quick flick of the...

    G'day, After the Amal that came on my bike died, I got myself a Mikuni as a replacement. Although the website suggested some simple tuning would make my dreams come true, I can't seem to get it right. No diss to Mikuni, I'm not a mechanic and may have bitten off more than I can chew. I'm...

    can a efi head be put on a carb bonneville engine? Existing head is damaged beyond repair and cannot find a carb replacement for the right money but there seem to be more Efi heads out there. They have different part numbers but I cannot see a difference. Can I simply put an efi head on in place...

    Here's a short video clip of my 350 Triumph showing what I did to get the carb cleaned and hopefully identifying the critical parts. It wouldn't start when I got it, but after the carb work, she ran beautifully :
