I'll have to rely on you guys

I'm at a slight disadvantage having never ridden this bike or any like it.. no owners manual. It's got a keyed switch back left and all sorts of buttons and knobs on the dash and now up pops another starter switch!
I'm all over Gregs website. Bless his heart!
In the meantime I'll continue to take many photos:



and rely on you guys to ask the really dumb questions

That's how I rigged up my ambo.

Danedg - starting process for my 74 Cali.

Put key in switch by your left thigh.
Turn it on (one click to the right)
On the dash, lift black knob on the right (at about 2 o'clock) up
Put your thumb on the horn-like switch under the throttle
Push.

The motor should turn over, assuming all the wiring's connected and you have a battery.

Master cylinder order?

I pulled, cleaned, refreshed. lubed and want to install new rebuild kit in correct order.



Plastic plug, spring,cylinder, flat washer, ...check.
Then gasket and cupped washer?
What should I be seeing from the handle side? Washer or gasket?

Master cylinder setup?

This ought to illustrate better what I THINK should be the correct order for the cylinder.



Missing on the left is the plastic "t" plug, then the spring, then the cylinder, then the flat washer.
Then the rubber gasket with the flange to the right and the cupped washer fitted over the rubber gasket.
The cupped washer has an enlarged edge that points to the right.
This can then be pressed into the housing and then prevents the whole assembly from popping out due to the spring and/or hydraulic pressure.?

Cheers Kev.
Yip took the plunge. Always wanted one, couldn't afford to pay for a minter straight out and little, if any, project bikes of this type available in this country. Price was right and I can restore as I have the funds. Due in end of the month and currently wrestling with her majesty's finest to get a lower rate of import VAT/ duty. Will get a better idea of whats needed when she arrives. Will keep you posted for sure!
Dave.

Ps. Was just about to go for yours some time back when it suddenly disappeared from ebay. Boy did I curse you at the time!! heh heh..
