You must have a loose connection somewhere, or a short to earth.

Have you tried going here:

And enter a new password.  As long as you are logged in, you should be able to reset the password without knowing the old password.

I'll look into why email messages aren't leaving the site.

Hi -
took the starter off my 83 500 single at the weekend and found a couple of items missing - presumably "misplaced" by the PA. To be fair it starts pretty well without them but now i know they are missing I need to replace them - and even when new it looks like they weren't available separately.
If any of you have a wrecked assembly that still  has these parts left I'd be really grateful

The items are: a couple of thrust washers and an insulator washer (which I could probably get locally if I had dimensions) and a retainer thingy which i'm sure I can't find locally . They are shown on the diagram below.

Obviously I will pay for these and postage to the UK - and you can bask in the knowledge that I will be eternally in your debt :D
Cheers
Adam

Trying to log into the site on another computer but can't remember my password.  I go through the forgot password dialogue but I don't receive the set new password email.

I still have these electrical gremlins that I just can't seem to figure out.
My whole electrical system will just turn on and off without any apparent reason.

I've made a short movie to illustrate.

So the ignition switch is on, when I rock the bike back and forth the electrics start going ape shit.
Anyone any hints to what it could be?

sHi,

I also live in Sweden just like Andre and according to a magazine which has been passed down between all previous owners, it came with a 43mm carb. Look at the pics.

PS: carburator is called "forgasare"

That's interesting.

Thanks.

Might be the clutch basket i am thinking of that has the case bolts behind it. Several years ago i completely split one apart so memory is not all that fresh.

FYI
Flywheel bolt is left handed threads.  Turn clockwise to loosen.
