      Sounds more likely it's a fault with the clock or possibly the cable but most likely the clock

  5. I have just joined the group. I'm from Pontefract and have recently finished rebuilding my cx500, its taken 2 years to finish and i'm very happy with the result. Came back to biking 3 years ago after becomming a widowed fella. My first bike was a Honda xl185 in 1980, after 37 years ish i bought a new Z1000sx and have loved being back in the saddle ever since.

  8. Hi everybody, After my cx failing to start i have stripped down carburettors and replaced all jets and air cut off valves. It starts and runs great now but i cant get the tickover below 2000 revs. I have the correct distance gap on the throttle stop and i have screwed in the pilot jets and back two turns. Any ideas guys please

  14. Thanks Peter, the gaskets arrived today whilst I was still trying to work out how to send you 

    the money for them to your Paypal account. I know how to do a bank transfer if that helps if you send me your bank details or I can send you a cheque.

      Hi Peter/Lawrie


      sorry to be a worrier, but that's a lot of personal data in one place - I hope no-one would take offence if I suggested it was deleted and you did this by PM instead?


      Alternatively, you could send the miney via my Bank of Nigeria account...





    2. Peter


      Thank Brendan, to be honest I don't know where the hell I'm posting, I thought it was a PM.

      With site appearing to be messed up I'm not getting the usual screens.


  15. Very good, seen that before ! Eric.
  16. Hi Peter thanks for your reply regarding the gaskets. I have tried the shop again but can't

    manage to get it to work. Can you please do it for me, I need 2. Thanks

    1. Peter


      Ok, the total cost, including postage, is £36.70.

      Because of the site problems I can't get at your address so if you let me have it I'll get them off to you.

      Pay the money into my PayPal account and I will credit it to the petty cash balance I hold.

      Account is [email protected]



    2. Peter


      Managed to get your address. Gaskets in the post 1st class tracked.   Should be with you Saturday but the way things are it could be Monday.

  17. Hi Peter can you tell me if you have any CX650 head gaskets in stock?  

    Pete G advised me to contact you as we seem to be having trouble with the shop at the moment.

    1. Peter



      I believe we do have the 650 head gaskets.

      I will have a look tomorrow and let you know.


    2. Peter


      Just checked the stock level and it shows 6.

      I can see the shop stock though the menu on the home screen.

      You should be able to order though that.  If not let me know and I will sort it out manually.
