Bullet with the UCE engine / Re: Tire pressure re-visited
« Last post by Scotty Brown on Today at 01:47:25 AM »
Yes, the newer C5 with the Avon tubeless tires and 19 inch front wheel.  Mine is a 2013 model.  Finally happy with the handling at the higher pressure. 32 front-34 rear.  Handling is a very individual matter.  I like quickness and precision with light steering pressure others may like the more sluggish grounded feel.  I was ready to go for the Dunlop K70's but now happy with the Avons. As they say it's whatever floats your boat.

Bullet Electra & AVL Models / Re: A Fury (B)eater?
« Last post by ace.cafe on Today at 01:02:58 AM »
HC told me that the gear change lever fails along with the stator.  I do not know why, they didnt clarify.
The gear change lever issue can be cured with a right-side shift kit for the 5-speed. We have to do this same thing with the Iron Barrel shifter when using the Newby clutch.
I don't know what the issue is with the AVL stator.

I'm still trying to figure out what Royal Enfield Automobile is.

The only automobile I've heard of was the failed venture into auto production back around 1902-1911.
Oh yes.  Their engines have been used in several different cars like the Berkeley sportscar but they didn't have anything to do with actually building the car.

If worldwide includes India, they are producing over 140,000 per year now that their new factory is on line.

As far as I can remember BW's original Asbo Electra-X used the stock clutch.

For up-graders, don't forget the Newby clutch is also available as a chain drive version for running in the stock oil bath primary cases, which you would probably have to use anyway if you keeping the electric start. But as a general point, I cannot for the life of me see why a tuned AVL should give a belt-drive clutch kit a harder time than a tuned cast iron Bullet engine.

Perhaps you could clarify what the bad things are!

Here's a Sixty-5



and here's an E/S 5 speed deluxe:



Paint, chrome and fork gaiters the only differences.

Bullet Iron Barrel / Re: Are crankshaft fixtures available?
« Last post by cafeman on January 25, 2015, 10:44:02 PM »
I do have an old 10 inch south bend lathe. I didn't think about that. The point is to assemble the thing with no runout?

This may be obvious, but if you're by chance reusing the crankpin just press it out from one flywheel, leave it in the other, just gotta make sure to check for run-out on both shafts beforehand. If you have good reading(s) and the pin is fine there's no sense in pressing the pin out of both creating more work than necessary. ;)

Right, I'm interested in what the bike looked like originally in case I want to return it to stock.

           I think this might be the exhaust side of one except that yours doesn't have the neutral finder lever. Others will correct me if I'm wrong. This one might be pre-'07.

            The "TY" might be TYPE? I'll look at mine later (an '08 AVL)
& see if there's a TY on it somewhere. Not that it really matters  :)
