Dear Ben, It will pay dividends if you deburr and polish the top faces of the valve springs which are in contact with the titanium retainers.This will reduce the wear on the retainers. Jerry Kooistra

Will do, thanks Jerry.

Does anyone have a good source for a decent twin pull fast action twist grip? Tommaselli/Magura or similar?

The rebuild is still dragging on..... but have all the parts required and rebored cylinders ready to go!! The bike is on the back burner for now (life takes over sometimes eh?) but is always ticking along where possible.

Ben !! Is it really you, mate ? Didn't spot you at the nats or Southern Classic, so figured you must have parked The Saga up and turned into a human. Be warned, mate, it won't last....
There's a bloke on the other thread looking for an engine builder in Melb for his CB350, maybe you can point him at a tame whizkid in your area.
Did you hear, James Dwight (jvdairlie )has sold his lovely CB350 racer (sob) but happily Ron Angel bought it, so we can expect to see it back out there soon...unfortunately, it'll probably have some hotshot like Rod Tingate or similar aboard...

Hope to see your smiling face at the races again soon, mate.
Regards GD

Haa haa. Yep, it is really me Glenn!

I have been keeping a low profile - will be back around the pits as soon as possible!

Will be good to see James' bike out on the track!

I was at the S/C for a couple of hours helping a mate, but did not find you in the pits. Hopefully catch up at the next one!

Cheers, Ben.

Not much happening lately huh?
Well here's some stuff from me. My CR93 (but 350cc) Replica has been running total loss points/ Condenser ignition. Got hold of a Newtronic K4 system from the UK. BUT ..... it has to be the most expensive piece of plastic junk imaginable! Good to see that they're now 'Under Development' on the existing unit. Perhaps using a bit more metal?
Back to points then. So far the two CB350's up here, regularly running 12,000 RPM, using different Cam profiles on needle bearings, are showing no sign of problems, related to machining the cams themselves to suit. Touch wood! There are another couple joining us soon, so there should be 4 CB350's on the track
Cheers

Why not have a look here at ignition systems You must be logged in to see this link. I am sure you will find them very interesting. I am using this in preference to dyna on my Kwak and think they are the bees knees. Totally programmable and reliable and reasonably priced considering what they are. A bit difficult to install due to communication issues (Czech Emglish is even worse than the old Japanese English)but their stuff works and Ducati people love them. They even reply to emails if you can understand them. Have a look I am happy to help where I can.

Thanks for that. One of the bikes up here has a Boretech, two have PVL, and mine points total loss - again.
There's a PAZON System, now made in N.Z. I think the owner/ manufacturer relocated from the U.K. a couple of years ago?
Anyone have any experience with these units?

Ben, about the twin pull twist grip - I think you can still back order some TZ350 parts through your local Yamaha agent. I've had two twist grips from that source for a long time, but I recently bought a ccouple of bodywork items which are still available. The twist grips come with three individual part numbers which make up the complete assembly. So you need to make sure you find them all when you are ordering.

Had a look at Pazon but didn't suit my bike. Seem to be a remake of the Boyer Ignitions

Well I got tired of adjusting the points ...... so bought a PAMCO total loss system from the USA. About A$115 delivered. Much better then the points and condenser! Fits really well, and the downloadable fitting instructions relatively foolproof!

I am jealous. I spoke to Allan Greening just before he died, and we discussed the likelihood that we'd both ride the Seeley 850 at the next old farts meeting. These days, I am pretty skint however we would have made the effort. I'm now looking for another job so I can pay for my vices .
 

 
Is your machine authentic or merely eligible?
