The Comet is an easy starting thing, first kick when done according to riders handbook. Practicing bump starts will be on the CB250 racer, PITA to start cold. even contemplating to get a roller starter.
While waiting for carb needle, Royal Mail and Nordpost takes time if it ever arrives, some notes on some hopefully final adjustments.
Never use stainless steel nuts and bolts. When they disappear down in the bellypan you can't get them out with a magnet.
To remove barends on original Manx clipons you can't use a bar and hammer as you can on most modern clipons. Instead drill and tap a hole in the bar end, fit a grease nipple and use a grease gun.
Rear bolt on chainguard going from the inside through a tapped hole in the frame gusset. Make slot in the threaded end and use a screwdriver. Much faster.
Silencer was built mimicing the original megaphone. Will be used when running in and for parade laps. Hopefully meets dB regulations. As the bike is rebuilt resembling what it looked like in the period -64 to -68 with scars and scratches keeping the patina, a spray can of heat resistant silver paint was used. Best parts of two short megaton mufflers lying around was used.
Silencer wheights 1.2 kg. Probably will need an extra stay at the rear.
