    Hi Michael,

    this time we passed three of those passes (Sella, Pordoi and Campolongo), and I haven’t seen any such signs. The “Sellaronda Bike day” was on Saturday, so the road was open only for cyclists on that day, and a lot of people were practicing already on Friday when we were there.

    I heard that some people are complaining about the…[Read more]

    Hi guys!
    I spent last weekend with my son in the Dolomites, not with a Twin but with a car. Nevertheless, it was great and it is definitely one of the best destinations to travel with a motorcycle (or a car), truly spectacular roads and scenery.

    Here are some photos, if you need any fresh information about the roads, just ask.
    Cheers,
    Marko

  • I will check the connections over the weekend, maybe I will find the solution. I suppose there is also a possibility that the petcock is not functioning properly anymore.

    Cheers, Marko

  • Thanks KK!

    I haven’t fix the starter clutch yet and I am not sure what has gone wrong with petcock valve, it worked fine before the “restoration”. At the moment, the fuel is not passing through when the valve is at “ON”, so when the engine is running, I have to put the valve at “PRI”. Is it possible that we connected the pipes wrongly or…[Read more]

  • Hello!

    Few photos from yesterday’s ride. I found a newly paved road with lots of turns and a lot of fun!

    Cheers, Marko

  • Hi guys!
    Finally, the bike is registered and on the road again! This weekend I was on a 250 km trip, and made it safely home. There are still a couple of issues to be addressed, first is the starter clutch: starter works fine, but the clutch is slipping. Still, I was able to start it with starter almost every time. Second issue is the petcock…[Read more]

  • A couple of progress photos – hopefully everything comes together again!

  • Thanks KK, I sent you a private message. In addtition, we decided that we’ll use standard size psitons, so I am looking for a set of those.

    Cheers, Marko

    Hi KK,

    we will check again if oversized pistons are really necessary, in case we’ll need standard ones I’ll let you know.

    I do not understand much German, but I assumed that oversized pistons in various sizes (+0.25, +0.50,…).are available in the shop that Michael posted above (Scheuerlein).

    Cheers, Marko

    Hi guys,

    thanks to both of you!

    I will have to speak to my mechanic first, but I think that we’ll need a bit larger pistons. Thanks Michael for the link, I will check if we can get them here first.

    KK, I am interested in the high tensile studs kit, could you please send the price and method of payment (I can pay with PayPal)?

    Cheers, Marko

    Hello again!
    Here’s an update: the piston ring on the left cylinder was almost gone, I guess that explains the oil consumption and smell from the exhaust. It seems that we will need to change the pistons as well. The next thing on the shopping list are the engine gaskets, do you have any recommendation for the complete set?

    Cheers, Marko

     

     

  • Thanks, since they are not so expensive I’ll try one of those and see how they sound.

  • Slowly but surely we are making some progress with the bike. I already have new tires and battery, carburettors have been cleaned, and next job is the starter motor.

    I was thinking about getting new exhaust silencers, I would like to have a bit louder exhausts, but not so much to annoy my neighbours. I was looking at something like these (Louis[Read more]

  • Hello!
    So after 3 years the time has come to put my twin back on the road and I am really excited about it! Today I took it to my friend’s garage, we will start working on it in the following weeks.

    The plan is first to check the engine and see what needs to be done. Next thing is the starter, new tyres and I would also like to change the brake…[Read more]

    Hi,

    I just saw that the topic lost all the photos, so I am adding a few for the new visitors on site. I do not find a button for editing old posts, is this even possible?

    In addition, some good news for my twin: the plan is to get it running again over the winter and put it back on the road by spring 2018. I mean, it still works as always, but I…[Read more]

    New season for riding already started here, but I wanted to share with you a video I made last year. It was taken on Croatian coast, from Karlobag to Stari Grad. I used a cheap SJ Cam, which was mounted on the left mirror, that is why the video is a bit “shaky”, but the overall quality of the camera is surprisingly good for the price (around 70…[Read more]

    Hi Michael,

    the case came with the bike. I admit it looks a bit unproportionate and high, but it is nice to have a lot of room for storage. The weight limit is according to instructions only 10 kg. I will go on my favourite twisty road with and without the case to see the difference in handling.

    Cheers,
    Marko
