Hi
Have bought the above and the electric start works very well and would like to keep it that way !!!!!!!
Any tips or tricks to give the components an easy life, eg better battery, higher output alternator, coils etc

-Don't over-use it

-If it ever makes any abnormal sounds, STOP USING IMMEDIATELY and investigate

-Good battery charge at all times (high output alternator is not an absolute requirement, but helps to maintain good charge at low speeds

-Properly tuned engines ALWAYS start up easier than rough runners

You have a fairly rare bike, take care of it and have fun!

By the way, your first post was worthless WITHOUT PICTURES!!!

Good advice from GPZ. Use the kick start first thing when she is cold and most of all... ENJOY!
You now need to check out the 50th Bonneville anniversary 'sticky' at the top of the page.
