Aha, great to see that this threads’ still going, bringing out all us closet bikers! Eddie, that’s a stunning Commando! I’ve ended up with HC flat top pistons in my P11 so she takes a good kick! I’m also 99% sure that beautiful TR6C was one I very nearly went to see at Classic Superbikes but didn’t,...

Re: Intermittent revs drop and stall.

Many thanks for all your inputs chaps, much appreciated. It’s given me a few things to go at. Now the only other thing I could do with help with is a kick up the exhaust to get me out of the house and into the garage on a damp grey Saturday! I might just need another large strong tea to contemplate ...

Re: Intermittent revs drop and stall.

Many thanks for your inputs chaps, I’ll take a look.

I’m just surprised that it seems to have suddenly started happening when, separate to this, it’s ran beautifully since it was set up on a rolling road in July last year. Cooler air maybe?

Re: Intermittent revs drop and stall.

Hi Christopher. I hear what youre saying, it was very warm but not fully hot. I then took it for a spin c10 miles and it stalled a couple of times when coming to a halt with no accelerator. It will restart perfectly and tick over smoothly at about 700 rpm but it’s definitely a new phenomenon.

Intermittent revs drop and stall.

Hello all. I wonder if anyone could suggest any tips for an unusual intermittent stalling issue? I started the car this afternoon and let it warm up nicely. On occasions when I’ve blipped the throttle and take my foot off the accelerator the revs drop right off and it stalls. It will then start with...

Re: Petrol smell

Hi Pete. My two sources of the smell of petrol were weeping banjos on the carbs and a loose jubilee clip on the fuel filler, accessed through the LHS cover in the trunk. You may well have checked those but they are both sources that I think need checking periodically. Good luck. A constant smell of ...

Mines unpainted (68 S1,25). A good squirt of ACF50 also keeps it from getting furry, as with anything else that’s aluminium. :thumbsup:
