Re: Fuse question - R51/3

Yes a 15 amp fuse would be fine As far as the 8 amp fuse it is only inline with the high/low switch wires and the 2 wires going to the headlight if the voltage now is 12 volts then that fuse should be reduced to a 4 amps Ps The headlight fuse was eliminated on the r50-r69s series from 1955-1969 Tom...

Re: So where do you live and ride?

That's a good idea.
Through the forum here I have already got contact with 2-3 people with such motorcycles, here in Israel.

Is this oil any good for our engines?

I will probably have access to this oil in the future, at a good price.
I have an R51/3.

R51/3 - front mudguard question

Hi again,
I would love to get information on where bolt # 14 in the drawing should go?
There is no nut or so on the other side.

Accelerator cables question

Hello guys, P.O. has put Bing carburetors on my R51/3 project, type 1/24/159 & 1/24/160 (he probably couldn't find the correct type). They are in top shape. Now I'm missing the acceleration cables.

Fuse question - R51/3

I have installed the old powerdynamo alternator back into the bike. Unfortunately I also do not remember what fuse was installed, if at all: The installation instructions state at least twice that a 16 amp fuse must be installed on the battery outlet (+) https://www.powerdynamo.biz/wiredias/g-only.p...
