checked over my 961 for tomorrow and battery was at 7V and ‘bad battery’ sign on charger, so £145 later, new exact Yuasa one fitted. Question: I couldn’t detach the 90 degree plastic connector from fuel pump,how??
However, by lifting tank and tilting it over to left, standing on left of bike, and duct taping tank to RHS frame to stop it slipping further off, I changed the battery!
There is a bit of a knack to it. But once discovered it is very easy. If your there tomorrow a quick demonstration could be held.

Cancel the meeting at the services. It would seem that if I didn’t have bad luck I wouldn’t have any. Bike won’t start. Turning over but not catching. Checked all the usual suspects but as I came light I don’t have any tools with me. Waiting on RAC. Hopefully I might still make it. Hope not on the back of a trailer.

Maybe battery voltage has dipped below optimal level for good ignition ?

First the frame breaks, then the engine doesn‘t start… sometimes you just gotta believe in karma… and accept it just ain’t meant to happen !

I think there were around 6 x 961's, a street and a dominator. Lots of talk of Stuarts support and his number was shared. The weather was ok but some rain heading back. Excellent bacon roll with a half of bass on draught. Some nice old Nortons too along with a couple of Guzzis and Truimphs.

Blighty, did you break down?

I didn't trip over any long pipes so Clive cant have been there either

I ran out of petrol on the M1 near Northampton. Seemed to be quite a bit sloshing around, but obviously not enough. While waiting at services for RAC, thought I might as well add some and it solved non-starting, so back down the A5 home, as too late to Welford it by then.

It has been one of these days. Only just got home. Richard still has 80 miles to go. It was me who broke down and when I get warm I will update. But I have to say a mega thanks to Richard (blightybrit) and Stuart Bodycote as without them it would have been back in a van. Thanks to Stuart Peach who waited for us and to the members of the organisers who also held on and we had a very interesting conversation.

Cam position sensor again. Then dragged the battery too low. Running again but a saga
Have you tried a Bosch brand sensor ? Just wonder why they keep going bad ? maybe a lot of salt spray from the front wheel . What did Stu say ?

Disappointed not to make it this year - thanks to our neighbour's builders damaging a pipe our bathroom wetroom upstairs decided to extend into the kitchen below. Hoping for some good weather this year for some more meet-ups. Still waiting for the Norton visitor's reception be open.

Had an email about Norton at The Bike Shed/ Tobacco docs 27-29 May. Pondering that one.
