    Cinders,
    You would be surprised. An SA80 A2 is only 4.98 Kgs with a full magazine attached, so nothing there to worry about. It is compensated by the "Worry Beads" on the other side

    Nice bike Gil

    I've had a few of these over the years, as well as the 500 Armstrongs. Provided the Amal carb was clean and set up properly the 500's were easy to start.
    I did my M/C Instructors course on them in 1989, they were surprisingly efficient off road, apart from the weight.

    There is a big club following on MT Riders Club - Index page , loads of knowledge, parts and help.

    Force Motorcycles sells all the parts, and ex RCT/RLC WO1 Gary Wigston runs Sportax Racing and is a wizard with all things Rotax/MT.

    The Rotax engine, being same external size for all sizes, is a plug and play. My current one has a 640cc engine, custom large tank made for the UKicon market a few years ago, and panniers relocated to the rear due to tank.

    I have two gun boxes, panniers and racks in the garage. I'd be lucky to get £200 for the lot. £500 is a very liberal estimate of value, probably based on Force 'New' pricing.

    Great motorcycles, great fun and good value for money.

    Thanks for that Roy, very useful.
    Real shame they never included a fuel gauge on the bike, but I suppose you check your bike everyday, so you would always glance in the tank first.

    Some of the early 500's had a fuel gauge which consisted of a clear plastic tube running up the front of the tank. Discontinued due to fragility.

    Once you know the limit of your tank, just set the trip meter each time you fill up, that's what most people do.

    That's if the trip meter works!

    Great fun though

    Yes thats what I have been doing, 120 miles is its limit. Strange place for the trip switch, but thats the beauty of the bike. Seek and you shall find!!
