A mate of mine has an older t100 Bonneville it's a carburettor modelIve never figured out the desire to run one carb on these two carb bikes.
Some say it's for tuning ease but there really isn't any tuning to do once it's set. It's easy to set the Amals up if one follows the instructions.
Once set, you can leave them alone for a long time.
I've also heard that the single is for improved starting, but how do you improve on one kick or one short push of the button?
Now I recall that last year when in Mission you mentioned that there wasn't much point in adding the second carb. You figured the Norton already had more pep than your T100 and there couldn't be much there that you were missing.
Now that it has extra zip with the 2nd carb it must have More than More power vs the poor old T100. So that's quite a bit.
But then there is a whole world of upgrades for that T100. It's just possible that with enough investment in engine mods it might keep up with the Norton?
He can't get past me when we go out
I don't know if this is typical of that type of hinkley Bonneville but I took one for a spin a few years ago and all I can say is it was completely underwhelming!
Anyway tornado are you going to stick with the twin carbs?
