Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

What sort of chain are you after Baggo ? An O ring ( or X ring) chain would probably be a good choice. I used 520 O ring chain on my KTM and TriBSA, and used a spring link on both. I'm very sure you are aware which way round the spring link goes. :wink: To fit an endless chain normally means taking...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

.....for sure, Thomas, that is a fibreglass tank, albeit, it’s walls are more than a quarter inch thick. I threw mine down the road on several occasions and luckily never damaged the tank, but I know where you are coming from. :D ha I practiced that a few times back in the day....luckily I seemed t...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Haha you've gone and done it now Mr Bass! I had a go on one when I was 17, I don't think I could get down so low to ride one nowadays..... It really was fantastic, great fun....even the gearbox worked (for the brief moment I rode it.....) but I think it gave up shortly afterwards! Btw I think the 4 ...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Sweet looking Bantam, well done! Back in the day servicing my Puch m50 was never on my high list of priorities, more use and abuse, it was only my runaround after all..... guessing a Bantam might have been treated likewise?! Good fun project tho, and yes DTB's right, owners club for a dating certifi...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Being simplistic I'd just wire in two independent on/off switches, for dip and mains....

Or a two arm rotary switch of some sort....?

Dave's bike on the other hand behaved impeccably, and a credit to his rebuilding skills.

I'm not sure what animal he was hiding in his rear brake tho......

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

I fitted a supa dupa all singing neoprene seal to my M18 chaincase over winter, replacing the rubber band.....it's slightly less drippy than it was...previous owner had got busy with the old silicone sealant which may have worked for about 5 minutes.... Melting tallow sounds fun, I might try that ne...

Re: Inverted OTL with 6SN7/6AS7

I might have to have a go at one of these inverted OTLs. 5687 version looks interesting but they're getting rarer and pricier. What would the panel say about subbing Russian 6N6Ps - claimed to be equivalent based on a quick bit of research (apart from the different pin layout) and much easier to fi...

Good to know you're getting along OK with G2 at 625V :)
It hasn't blown up...yet.....! Actually it's a mere 550v relative to the cathode isn't it?!

Re: GK-71 - economical build.

And here's mine for posterity..... No prizes for originality.....I started off with two 6n6ps which sounded very nice, but changed V1 to a 6n1p for a touch more gain, and played with the biasing until I thought it was about right. Ideally I think I could have upped the 320v and rebias and run a bit ...
