Am I missing something here? The bike is not running. The primary case is filling with oil. If your primary case is filling with oil and the bile is not running. I's say it's wet sumping. How quickly does it fill with oil. If it's over a few days. Then it's wet sumping. You will not know if the scav...

Not sure if it's original but from MY 1967 B44 Victor Special.

At great expense I've just had the original speedo rebuilt on the 1967 B44 Victor. It now oscillates up and down about 20 miles an hour. I've had Tacho's and Speedo's rebuilt by this company before without any problems. So before I make a fool of myself and complain to the company that rebuilt it I ...

Hi Jeff
I'm running the Boyer electronic ignition.
NGK BR8ES Spark plugs (same as my B50)
I just bought some new BP8ES as per the manual but then they would be for the energy transfer system. I haven't used them yet. Waiting for the new coil.
What plugs would you recommend.

Advance Retard Unit

Hi Guys
Is it ok to run an advance retard unit 5 deg in a B50 SS. I have read on the site that 15 deg was standard for the B50 SS and the 5 deg was for energy transfer systems.

Would there be a downside to running the 5 deg in the standard setup.
Thanks
