 Hi , i have recently got a 12v engine  for my spare bike & am not familiar with where the brushes wires are supposed to attach. can someone tell me which coloured terminals they go to . Also can these be bought new as i only have one. Are they the same as yas1 s.  .... cheers
Hi, if you can put some jump leads on with your battery still connected and a good battery and try the charging test again and see if the voltage stability stays the same it could be that your battery is not excepting the charge. If the battery is not taking the charge the generator is trying to run the bike and charge the battery .
With a good battery the generator charges till the battery is full then I splits to run the vehicle and tricked charge the battery
The battery seems to charge ok, charges at about 13.4 on my battery charger and after a few hours off the charger it stays at about 12.85 for what could be a few weeks before it goes on the bike. Just to clarify Dave.. what am I looking for with two batteries connected, am I checking to charging on the bike battery or the other one? would a 70 amp hr car battery be ok or will this cause any issues /damage? cheers
Is that the correct capacity (Amp Hour rating) for that model?
It was a 5amp hr lead acid battery on the bike, I think that is the correct one... seems a bit small to me?

Nothing wrong with a barn find. I bought a 250D that some kids on a farm had messed about with, they had tried to make the back end into a trike, messed it up badly then dumped it in a barn. I paid thirty quid for it, had frame, engine (not seized), carbs, airbox complete front end and most of the electrics. The stink of cow shit came for free and was long lasting........ ::) ::)
Ok for bits though, I still have most of it as spares

Hi, Chris, I think I'm getting there with the carbs now. If that works out I'll try and start the engine as is, see what happens. I'm not intending doing a complete resto at the moment, I'd just like to get her up and running and do the little things that need doing to see if she'll pass an M.O.T.
Then I can decide over the winter if I'm going to go down that road.
Thanks for the offer of engine/ parts, but I'll leave it for now.
Pictures of frame and engine numbers, if by a miracle You have the engine :o :o :o

Hi folks.....EVENTUALLY !!!

Stripped both carbs out today...Bowls were fine and correct on each carb. The small hole at the bottom of the choke feed was...well...Choked !...Aye! ..WELL choked !....with some fiddling about with a safety pin and a 1.5mm drill bit, it gradually cleared. Put everything back on the bike, switched on the fuel....Choke ON....1st kick...BOOM !...Started !

I cannot thank all you guys who posted on this topic but if you are ever in the Aberdeen area, gimme a shout and I will buy you a drink. A fantastic Forum too.

Brilliant effort by all and much appreciated.

To sum up....It was the feed hole for the choke that was completely gummed up.

Thanks again...w399

Got the RD on the road and pulls nicely to 5000 but then just doesn't want to rev past this. Was thinking fuelling as when it runs out of fuel it runs crisp just before stopping. Also thought might be condensers but not sure. Any ideas? :-\

Busy time for me at the moment, assen last weeked and Sachsenring this weekend  ::)

So only a little progress.

The engine cases are all primed with Acid Etch

And some is getting some colour

And got a parcel today from NSRNick, beautiful calipers, mastercylinders and some 'Olive Drab'  :P

Hopefully, in a couple of weeks and can really get stuck in to this project by starting the engine rebuild  :)
