Hi Kinjane, just wanted to let you know I contacted Paul Henshaw, took my bike to him and he's working on it as we speak...(maybe knocked off for the day now actually (18.30))
He's a proper bloke, knows old Brit bikes inside out and I'm looking forward to getting the Bonnie back purring.
Thanks again for pointing me in his direction!
ps I've been watching his videos on YouTube for 6 months, wondering if I could get in touch with him, and as I drove down his road the scenery and landmarks were strangely familiar,until I twigged it was the same guy. First thing I said to him was 'do you have videos on YouTube?'..and we laughed...
Cheers very much again...
See you on the road... 🏍

Tomorrow I will start tracing down the wiring.
I suspect, and hope, it is at the switch.
Has anyone experienced this problem? Maybe I can cut to the chase.
I've just joined the forum, although I think I was actually a member back in the early noughties when I first got my 1997 Speed Triple!
Anyway - I've recently become the custodian of a 1965 Tiger 100SS and a 1969 T120R. Both of these bikes belonged to my F-i-L who sadly passed away last...
Finally a warm enough day here for me to fire up the 77 bonnie for the first time in a few months and try out some of the repairs and tweaks I've done. After a few kicks, bike fired up, ran very rough, then died. I did a few quick tests and determined the left cylinder is not firing. I...
