PostSubject: bantam tuning manual   Fri Aug 28, 2015 7:49 pm

I'm the new boy on the block and have read all the postings on forum about a new book on bantam tuning and race preparation All I wish to say is PLEASE stop talking about it and get on with it as there are a few out here who would really appreciate some sensible guidance I have a copy of the original book and it is evident that things have mover on a little. A good book would help save a lot of sore knuckles and wasted time and money not to mention engine failures.I have just purchased an old racer with a view to having some fun next year I have no history but it is evident a lot of thought had gone in to this bike the engine is stripped and I'm measuring every thing to see what I've got. It was probably built 30 years ago was run at North glos events but never finished, the box of dead pistons that came with it was impressive. I would gladly pay for an advanced order if this encourages the author to crack on !!!!!!!!!

PostSubject: Latest Info...   Sat Aug 29, 2015 4:05 am

Hi Mickerwt!

I have just been informed there´s information on this on Facebook....

Cannot guarantee that myself because Facebook won´t let me onto their website despite my trying several times .... Once blackened -- always forbidden I suppose....

Point of interest though what size is the Bantam engine you´ve got? and the `original book´ you spoke of -- what is the title?

Cheers!

Welcome to the Forum Mikerwt.
If you have any sort of Bantam question or are puzzled about what to do, just post, someone will help you out with advice and information!

Couldn`t agree more with you about the new book, I have a couple of articles ready to go, suitable for the tyro and "expert" alike, just need the rest to make similar declarations and we can move forward?

Regards, Trevor

PostSubject: Racing Bantam Prep ... manaual   Sun Aug 30, 2015 1:52 am

Hi Mickerwt!

Have you yet looked at the contents of the blue boxes running across the top -- before you get to "Forum"?

3rd along under "BIKES" has "Tuning Info", `Build a 175 Racer´ and `Bantam Racer Articles´ which contain a lot of attached boxes full of information which cannot be all out-of-date...

.... and worth a read in any case.

... and the 4th box along: "RACING" has "Getting Started" and under "Rules" has the Formulae which -- is of course -- very important if you wish to race a Bantam under Bantam Racing Rules ...

... there´s an additional box connected to the latter titled "Tools" which shows how to make a Piston-Pin-Pulling Tool which is now totally redundant- This was explained just recently in a posting on here where modern pistons have `loose`piston pins.... There´s a clutch assembly tool which might even be relevants today -- among many other HomeMade tools....

At least they might give you a few ideas before 2015 end......

What size is the engine in the Bantam you have? There´s quite a diffrence in 125 and 175 Formulae which is worth taking a look at before jumping for one or the other. The 3 speed 125 is more difficult to race competitively than the 4 speed 175 but there are restriction´s on the 175 which don´t -- straightaway-- make it the obvious choice.

Best of luck!

Cheers!

John.

PostSubject: Must Apologise ...   Sun Aug 30, 2015 3:54 am

Must apologise --

SORRY!

I have been wondering  about the "Old Manual" , where to get it --  and not finding it began thinking it was a figment of someone´s imagination ...

.... I was looking under "GETTING STARTED "  and there it is stated that there is a beiginners Manual  and it is available ...

Since I missed it -- can I be told how to get hold of copy ---

Please don´t tell me it is available on Facebook .... Facebook repeatedly tell me I am not me.


Cheers!

JB....
