Re: Anyone have Mark Huggett mufflers?

I sourced from Huggett, and sold, those same mufflers (both the R50 - R60/2 versions and the R69S version) at Bench Mark Works for many, many years. They are correct, and fit as they should. What more can I say?

Re: /2 Charging question

I trust that you did follow the directions for the electronic regulator, and and disconnected the wire wound ceramic resister. It is not used with any of the new solid state regulators. If you have it connected, the solid state voltage regulator will NOT work. To "flash" the generator, (you do not h...

Re: Throttle assembly for /2 (32712072347) needed

You can't buy a new complete throttle All that is available new is the steel throttle tube and the cam and chain.

Re: Plunger regulator for swingarm twin regulator?

Buy yourself a replacement solid state voltage regulator. The originals are electo-mechnical and and physically wear out and change their regulation value as they do. FORGET attempting to fix it. Get it wrong, and have the generator overcharge, and it will get hot, melt, sling all the solder out of ...

Re: Are these the correct switches for a 1967 R69s?

You wrote: Instead of doing that can I just cut the wires from the existing rotary switch and then screw them into the terminals on the back of the new rotary switch? I would not do that. The wires of the /5 switch are OLD. And stiff. And, if you cut them, and strip the insulation off, You must twis...

Re: Are these the correct switches for a 1967 R69s?

Almost that simple but not quite. The existing /5 switch you currently have, has a non removable, hard wired harness on it. The correct era switch, has tiny screw terminals on the back side, to attach the harness to the switch. These are the part numbers you would need in order to put the correct sw...

Re: Throttle tube freeplay

If your carbs were in sync, getting the slack out of the throttle tube to gear, will not effect the sync at all. Of course it remains to be seen, or known, if the carbs were in sync in the first place.

Re: Aftermarket hydraulic steering damper?

I have used this VW beetle damper successfully on /5 & /6 bikes with sidecars ((and they were never intended for s/c use)
Cheap enough at $29.95. Go have a look.
