Hi Guys, Hope everyone is well and the sun is out for riding!
I have a 1965 VBB, bought it a few weeks ago. The last owner modified it, some good, some bad. I am quite handy with a spanner so repairs and upgrades no problem.
At the moment, it has the following - 12v conversion, 24mm OKO carb, 10" wheel conversion, fast flow fuel tap, scootrs stainless exhaust and also the fitting to this exhaust looks like a T5 fitting?? Is this a usual modification, or is it due to the exhaust needing to just be matched up by last owner?
I will be using all parts from sip from now on, but the setup seems good for now. In a few months I want to take the head off and see if it has had any internal work done, 177 kit, etc... I dont know if that has been done. It has a weeping cylinder head so I dont mind doing the job.
Question is, on the spec above, what else can I do to improve this motor? Its for use as a daily rider, most days anyway. What is the best book to buy for doing engine work. Never worked on the internals of one of these engines and I wonder how easy it is to remove the head, or how to check what piston is in there. If I find its original and decide to upgrade (I will if its original), is the job easy enough to fit and do I need to upgrade the clutch or camshaft?
