    Spare Wheel Carrier

    quote name='jimmylegs' date='Jan 9 2010, 01:46 PM' post='193966'] Hi guys, Can't make my mind up if i like the spare wheel and carrier on the back of my 2b, and to be honest it would give me that bit of extra space in my tiny garage if it was cut off, I don't carry a spare in my other car just a foot pump and a can of tyre weld. So whats your oppinions? and also any pics with and without would be good.. Jim.. Hi, ive chopped mine off, but still with a view of it slugging back in place, by welding 2 pieces of box section in the open ends of the wheel carrier. This will then, let me slide it back in place, and 2 bolts through to hold in place, if i ever go on a long run and if i ever finish my build. I have also attached a back plate with 2 wheel nuts welded on to the bracket, and then attach the bracket to the rear of the chassis. from top to bottom Then i have 2 holes in the body hidden under the number plate for 2 extended wheel bolts to go throught to secure the wheel to the car restting in the wheel carrier at the same time. The number plate light is in a place so the wheel will no clash with it when on. The electrics will be detachble to suit either wheel on or off by a small plug, and so on. here are a few pics if helps Andy

    R1 Carb Balancing Help Req'd

    Cheers for the help guys, Ive had a play today, and balanced them the best i can, and seems to have worked, until i get it on a rolling road, but now behaves a lot better, as number 1 was way out. Just a quick tip for any one doing the same. Its well worth drilling 3 access holes in the filter backing plate, each in-line with were you would be using your screw driver to ajust the throttle screws on each carb. As this will make it a lot easier for future ajustment, saves taking off all 16 screws just to get at the 3 ajuster screws[/size]

    R1 Carb Balancing Help Req'd

    Hi can any one help,? as i am trying to balance my r1 carbs strapped to my 2 ltr pinto, just to get my 2b roughley set up before sending it out on a rolling road set up. I have bought a Gunson carb balancer to help me, but still not sure what setting i should be aiming for on the read-out, ( 1,2,3,4,5)? and where the ajustment screws are on the carbs. Has any one had a go before with this tool? cheers Andy.
