Totally correct, I did not see the nut.

Tomos did have odd year A35 Classic models that had two petcock positions, one for Male thread and one lower for female threads to avoid having to stamp different frames for the same year ST's that either came with the A55 (standard ST) or the A35 Classic restricted models that were sold in some funky countries.

Re: Buzzards vs Barons Vogue Single Speed Build Off

Just got off the phone with Stephen we are stoked too see the responses to this. We are having so much fun building out bikes. I am bummed I am so slow to get to work on everything. Damn life getting in the way. I should get my motor back together tomorrow night and the exhaust welded up on Monday! Then I’ll be ready for a test run! If everything goes will I’ll get to some of the cosmetics on Monday as well. This may be my new favorite bike. Best part is that mine will be the fastest!

Yes sir it did! About to send you a video on how it goes back together. I actually just finished making one.

Re: Buzzards vs Barons Vogue Single Speed Build Off

So it would not clear the transfers. Best bet would be to mill the kit down and add a base gasket. Don’t have a late and don’t want to sand it. So I adjusted the piston. I did this to a MBK kit before it worked well. I am sure it lowered compression but I would rather have the transfers open more. I went a little too much on the exhaust but I am not worried.

All buttoned up. Head torqued down to 125inch lbs. Carb from Stephen should be here tomorrow. I’ll have time on Monday to do the exhaust and take it for a rip! House work calls tomorrow and Sunday I am going 4 wheeling. So Monday it is..... Idk may still mess with the pipe this weekend. So so so so so so excited! Most fun I had building a bike in a while.

All for the love of it! Buzzards are the best....But my bike will still be faster.(edited)

Re: Buzzards vs Barons Vogue Single Speed Build Off

Aux exhaust ports on a single speed... you might be fighting to get that clutch to stay slipping and not dumping the starter clutch at 10mph. Did you happen to get durations before you buttoned it all up?

One of my favorite things is blowing thru the reed valve making a honk sound. :)

Hahaha mine too!

I did not measure the ports, calculate blow down or do a port map. :/ Recently I started keeping port maps on kits I was porting because someone would always ask. I don’t know how it will do as a single speed with a stock exhaust. We shall see? I know the exhaust is not more than 45-50% of the bore and I only raised the main window like 2mm.

I keep telling myself single speed don’t go to nuts......

Re: Buzzards vs Barons Vogue Single Speed Build Off

Exhaust is done!
