Just think how happy you'll be when you find out what it is, and cling to that small oita of solace while you are banging your head on the workshop wall, or the offending tank.

Did that help?
Hope so.

It's that intermittent issue again. Maybe you are the fault :lol: Sorry couldn't resist but you have to laugh or you cry. I just wish you could find what it is because we are all desperate to know.

So this is with the newly fitted 'standard' engine

Could it be loom related if all other bits & bobs have been checked & changed.

other than the chassis theres not one single item from the old build on it now, engine,carbs,pipes,tank,coils,plugs,ecu,rec unit, like i mean nothing at all, its already had a new loom aswell. how the actual fuk can this happen?? it cant, nothing that makes an engine go is on the bike, everything that makes an engine go is lifted from the doner bike, a bike iv seen running yet when its built into the blue bike it refuses to rev clean and keeps getting worse the more i run it...

iv lost sight of the fact its just a bike, like all the others iv had which i would have long since binned for doing this . 8O ..


i had thought ,oh il come back to it? iv came back to it so many times so i have to work out how to get out of this with a few pounds in my pocket.

There can be some kind of electrical/mechanical issue when engine gets warm, is it running ok after cool down?

Some wild guesses, there is no place for normal ones,

Thermostat: try to remove it, or check all hoses are tempered - for stuck/closed thermostat, maybe there is local overheating causing the issue
Different clocks: some kind of electrical faulty signal here

My repeating advice is get it to someone else for general check ...

Is it something you are doing? Is there some technique you use when fitting the stuff that you use on the Spondon but not on old yella? Is there some hose or electrical connection that is unique to the spondon?

Are your fuel pipes getting pinched somehow when you re-fitting the tank ?

well iv ordered new coils, as its the only thing i havnt changed with new stuff, tho the coils were working perfect on the doner bike,as was old yellows coils, but its a last shot,,,,

it doesnt get worse with heat as such, from stone cold i get about a mile then it starts, from boiling hot its still about a mile, the thermostate is long gone about 2 years ago, tho i have tried the doner bike thermo and its the same...


its getting the coils tried then its getting what i should have done to it a long time ago :thumbdown: ... cant say i havent give it more than enough chances lol.
