Thank heavens for this weather. At least we're not prisoners in our homes on Sunday because of Velo South.
Sorry to hijack your thread Andy.

Well, I can now assure you all that it is not a good idea to use an inlet valve in place of the exhaust valve!! I have been struggling with it for some time, having to regularly adjust the exhaust valve clearance until eventually it ran out of adjustment.

So today I stripped down the top end and removed the offending valve.  It has a very noticeable dished face, and has increased it's overall length by approximately 4.5mm.  :o

Those who said it wasn't a good idea can now be very smug.   ::)  I've now lapped in a new exhaust valve, and should be back on the road tomorrow.

Hi there
I agree the dual seat looks terrible, I sold mine and bought an eBay Indian small solo seat. I needed to modify front mount on the seat to make it a bit longer and wider.
The springs that came with it support my 14 stone no bother, feels firm but not hard,
Hope this helps

A handy place to keep the salt if you're eating celery in bed.
