650 Twin - Interceptor/GT / Re: What did you do to your bike today?
« Last Post by birguy on Today at 08:56:11 pm »
ALSO--- My "Touring" seat came in on the Concorde from India (no idea how they ship so fast via ebay.)  For $120 bucks i figured what the heck i'd give it a try and maybe save myself a sore backside or two before the end of the season.   Worst case if it's not as comfortable as I need I can send out my stock seat for a custom build and not be seatless.  I like the white piping, colored touring tag near the back, and embroidered "RE" symbol on the back of the seat.  It looks to be a little more padded/comfy and certainly decent quality for the money.

I have one of those seats too. Same logic, if I didn't like it send the stock one to get reupholstered. I find the touring seat to be firm but that is a good thing. I would like it to be a little wider for more support but doesn't bother me enough to send the stock one off.

Those are your videos?
Looks like fun.
I would like to find one just for cool factor.   1st world problems.   Lol...
Yes, that's me. I think they could provide some local amusement until the novelty wears off, performance is similar to a very tired 350 Indian Bullet and there's no shortage of noise and vibes to confirm when the engine is running!

Installed my fork brace from @TrianglePete

Looks much nicer than stock, haven't been on a ride yet to gauge the performance difference but i'm sure it will perform just fine.

Campfire Talk / Where has Ace gone?
« Last Post by Bullet Whisperer on Today at 08:38:15 pm »
Perhaps the same might be said about me, as I don't get so much time to join in these days, but I look in from time to time, and I notice Ace appears conspicuous by his absence. Is he ok [I hope so], or maybe like for me, all the new models have taken over and much of what can be said about the older models has pretty much all been said?

Bullet Iron Barrel / Re: Still "Untainted by technology" ?
« Last Post by Paul W on Today at 08:31:08 pm »
Ah! I feel your pain. I had a stiff shifter and kicker arm after I did the right hand conversion. I had to leave one of the two "locating?" dowels out and it works fine. Still kicking myself for not just boring and bushing my stock cover. In fact after I received the kit it was obvious all the parts were already there with just a little lathe and drill work.

I did my own conversion because the commercially available one (!) was far too expensive for my liking. It cost me about £50, half of that for parts, which were very easy to source and £25 to have the outer cover bored out to suit a top hat bush. The most difficult part was shortening and remaking the gear change shaft from the original. Had RE not turned down the diameter of the original and left it a constant diameter right along its length it would have been far easier. As it was I had to cut off the little lever and braze it back on in a different place. Since my conversion I’ve discovered that Hitchcock’s actually list a right hand change shaft, but it’s expensive.

650 Twin - Interceptor/GT / Re: Out and about on your 650 - photos
« Last Post by whippers on Today at 08:29:02 pm »
Can’t do much with the current lockdown but realised I hadn’t got any photos of the two bikes together. I did ride the Interceptor to the supermarket to get a precious resource - coffee beans.
