K&N filters on sale

Just to say Euro Car parts are having one of their 24 hour sales on. I managed to bag a K & N filter (33 - 2060) for ÂŁ33 inc vat.
With eight hours left to go get it ordered and grab a bargain. Sales code is : SPOOKY80.

BSA B40 Rotax 500

Seeing it’s possible to graft the 500 Rotax into the B25 frame, albeit with some finagling. - see Honeysucklekisser’s brilliant job. I’d like to put forward the idea of squeezing the MT500 into the B40WD frame. The BSA lump is slow for modern roads, and spares aren’t as universal or cheap as they on...

Will a Can Am Speedo work on a MT500 ?

Hello you Bombariers,

just a quick question to see if the Can Am Speedo will fit onto the MT500 cable AND does it have the same ratio of 2:1 ?

Re: Any club(or ex) members own this MT500 ?

Big thanks everyone. I've put the vin number on the register and a FOI request to the MOD. Normally I wouldn't care about a bike's history, but there is something intriguing about the life of a MT whether it sat in a a crate in some depot for years or saw more action than John Rambo. This is my firs...

Any club(or ex) members own this MT500 ?

Just bought this MT500 the other day. Luckily it came with plenty of paperwork and a laminated army workshop manual. Registration: C69 RFE Vin 001457. Loads of receipts from LMS from July 2007 to Jan 2013 suggesting a top end overhaul (new barrel and piston) plus plenty of maintenance. All in the na...

Re: Buying a MT500 in Worthing, Sussex.

The front is definitely a drum in the pics. The seller said there's some wheels and bits to go with it, so I'm picking it up by van. I think they might be MT500, but as for condition or if they're a complete pair we'll have to see. It doesn't have MT indicators, but some diddy aftermarket cheapo job...

Re: Buying a MT500 in Worthing, Sussex.

Thanks for all the replies and advice guys. You're right on the money Hounddog. I'm getting this from Phil in Worthing. He's had it garaged for a year and SORN'd. He says it starts and runs OK, with no major mechanical problems. Looks quite clean in photos and according to the MOT records it didn't ...
