Very nice. Especially the colour! Keep the Scottoiler; your chain and sprockets will thank you for that.

Just make sure the small brass restrictor has been fitted and there are no leaks.

What he said. There must be no leaks from the vacuum source.

Did all that and mine still ran loads better once I binned the SO.

Your EScottoiler worksfine though  :thumbsup

They may be old but they still work ......................
the old 45L  works good for keeping beer cold on the salt flats during speed week  :icon_mrgreen:

Picked her up from Stroud this morning,
(http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g132/cockneytaff/temporary_zpss8znap63.jpg)

All felt very familiar within a few miles, including the rather heavy clutch lever. The Digi Gear indicator is interesting, seems to take a few seconds before it works out what gear your in and if you pull up sharpish and come down the box quickly it has a hissy fit. I think the Hagon on the back is past its best already, hyd preload  seems to have packed up altogether, and damping seems poor, but I havent played with that yet. Engine etc seems really good, the noise from the Blueflame is ace, and the top baffle is still in, god knows what its like with that out. Let the fettling begin

That's what I had heard that it will eventually tell you what gear you are in but not straight away.I was told it's something to do with the Triumph electrics only just providing the minimum required "pulses" from the front wheel speed sensor and the crank sensor.
