AMAL alternative

Has your Voskhod broke again? Suffering dodgy Italian electrics? Post your tales of woe here. Or ask odd questions about the rear wheel spacer on a Vincent Black Widow, should it take your fancy.

AMAL alternative

Unread post by Wessex100 » Sun May 13, 2018 7:24 pm

Hi All

New to the forum.
Having endless pains with AMAL on my 500 single AJS
As not worried about looks, am considering going if down the PWK route.
Any advice, experience and source would be great.
Thanks in advance

Hi Wes,

Welcome to the forum. I would gladly chip in with advice on Mikuni VM carbs but have little knowledge of the Keihin PKW. On the AMAL front I have often heard it said that past 10,000 miles use they are usually well worn out, past the point where new chrome slides etc. will make much difference. Obviously the AJS came with AMALs so why not fit a NEW one, or the replica's available from Wassell.

Cheers Geoff
