Re: Insurance - Is it me?

FYI it can be worth trying Harley-Davidson insurance. It is the same company as Carol Nash but they do know what MT 350s and 500s are. I usually get a good deal, after negotiation, on my 4 Harley’s of which 3 are MTs. They also include breakdown and full European cover.

Re: New mt.350

Whilst there shouldn’t be any oil in the timing case where the belt is, there is a small drain hole in the bottom of the cover which can block up. If oil is getting into the case, possibly the cam and/or crank seal need changing. Clean it all out and run the engine with the cover off to see if you c...

Re: Upgrade or replacement Carb, MT350

I’ve been helped immensley by Nick and his lad at Force Motorcycles, Gary at Sportax and George with his fantastic stainless parts. However, fettling wise, whenever I’ve been s...

US Spec 500e Headlight

I’ve nearly finished a project of converting a 350 into a US spec 500e. I’ve managed to get all the US specific parts (bar the headlight) and a 500e engine rebuilt (thanks to Nick at Force and Gary at Sportax). I have a US headlight cowl but ideally I could do with the US spec headlight that fits in...

Re: HD owners club

To be a member of a Harley Owners Club it’s fairly obvious that you need to own a Harley. As an MT 350 is as Harley as any of the other Harley models, having been built by Harley in the USA, you can join the Owners clubs. I own MTs and am in the Rutland Chapter of the Harley Owners Group (HOG).
