Re: New Member

Hi Paul, you'd get more response if you started a new thread. If you've also got a G3L Matchless you might be a member of the AJS & Matchless Owners Club? If so you can ask on their forum and access thier technical section. Try this link : http://archives.jampot.dk/Technical/HarrisG80/parts_lists/Al...

Re: Wanted - MT350

I'm the same height as you and I changed my MT350 to suit. I dropped the forks in the yokes 40mm and bought rear shock absorbers from Hagon 40mm shorter. It's nice and comfortable now, both feet on the floor.

George (P.I.STAKER) , member on here used to have re-conditioned original silencers which looked great. Worth asking?

MT350 tour of Yorkshire lanes

There's a 4 page write-up of one of Diesel Dave's tours of the Yorkshire Dales in Real Classic October 2019. The article features 4 MT350s on 140 mile run, mostly unpaved lanes. (Probably a bit tame compared to Bonnylad's runs but looks interesting).

Re: Joined today

Hi Micky,
be carefull buying an un-registered MT. It needs to come with form 654, the release form from the army proving it's age. DVLA are tightening up on this. Dave.

Its a good alternative and easier to fit. Cut to length with a craftknife. As a temporary measure you can wrap insulation ta...
