Description



CARBURETORS

New upgraded Amal Premier carburetors, which are designed with forged, hard-anodized slides for longevity and non-stick.

Another improvement of the Premier carbs is a 'stay-up' float made from a military grade material that will not allow the float to sink for any reason.

This float is adjustable unlike the OEM float.

A Viton float needle is another bonus.

The carb uses a removable pilot jet for better fine-tuning, where the OEM Amal's pilot jet is not removable.

New genuine Norton throttle assembly.

New genuine Norton throttle cables.

ENGINE BREAK-IN

Fresh oil change after 30 break-in miles on an indoor 'rolling road'.

GASOLINE

Runs strong on pump gas, although we always recommend non-ethanol (no alcohol).

#1 choice: non-ethanol

#2 choice: 87-91 octane, adding Star-Tron gas treatment.

High octane is not necessary, but if you choose to use it, make sure you add Star-Tron gas treatment, as much of the high octane has alcohol added, and Star-Tron will negate the damaging effects of ethanol.

Fresh gas is most important, as there will be less likelihood of water in the gas.

We've built the bike with modern upgrades, while keeping the appearance of the bike very original. Overall improvements over stock result in quicker acceleration, faster on top power, with smoother running engine.

Buyer will be provided with an indepth list of non-stock parts, in the event repairs may be required in the years to come.
