Of course, Paul means if you don’t have the screws it’s a ball bearing engine. But he knows that. Just thought I’d correct the typo to avoid confusion

Re: Clutch locking tool and seal size

Hi Tim, Les Madge had a clutch holding tool for sale at the Morini club rally just gone. You could try emailing him, maybe he would post it to you. Try his club email address: devon@morini-riders-club.com Regarding the oil seals, having some turned is ideal but whenever I'm stuck I make a cone from ...

Re: Rear master cylinder replacement

I have no clue if this would be a direct replacement or if they are any good. But I did read somewhere that classic karts used grimeca master cylinders similar to ours, and found this copy of one online. Worth investigating possibly? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Motorcycle-Master-Cylinder-13mm-bore-/1...

Re: 2021 AGM and Rally weekend

Three Moors Run- Sunday 12th Sep

I've just had a call from Russell Benney saying that they have had a drop-out for this weekend's three moors run (or Giro South west) and asking if anyone in the club would be interested (I suspect at this stage a reasonable discount could be negotiated!) Sounds like a really fun event, aimed primar...

Re: 2021 AGM and Rally weekend

I don’t have one, but to help in your quest- which colour is it you need- 3 1/2 badge? Black and gold or white and silver?

Re: Electrical issues

I won’t profess to know what diode should be fitted or how to spec one. Ming sounds like he knows what he’s talking about though. All I can say is my bike has one of these fitted. Works fine although I suppose you wouldn’t really know until you had a switch issue! https://www.altecautomotive.co.uk/1...

Bridgnorth Italian day- 5th september

A message from the IAMC below- this is usually a great event, which in previous years the club has had a presence at. This years dates have only just crossed my path so I’m not sure if anyone plans on going but hopefully some morini folk will. 5th September Bridgnorth Italian Auto Moto Festival – Al...

Re: Welcome new forum members - introduce yourself

Welcome Rob, I couldn’t tell you when I last saw an Excalibur turn up to a UK club event. Like most of the Cagiva era morinis (and I have both!) they are an acquired taste but underpinned by that fabulous engine we all love. I’ve always wanted to take an Excalibur on the club’s trackday at Cadwell, ...

Re: MRC Chairman’s run- 22nd August 2021

Don’t forget it’s the chairman’s run to the national motorcycle museum tomorrow. Meet at the museum at 11am, unless you’re riding there with others. I have it on very good authority that today’s weather will absolutely not be repeated inside the museum tomorrow and all activities are guaranteed 100%...

Re: Electrical issues

Glad you got it sorted. Common wisdom seems to be that you can't go wrong with extra earth points, and that it's always worth checking/cleaning terminals and bolted connections, especially if they've not been looked at for years. Although my sport wan't too bad, it has most definitely benefitted fro...
