HOME and how to join Forum Open Area General Scott topics Banbury Run Re: Re: Banbury Run


I too was surprised at the number of Scotts entered, a great turn-out. I completed the course no probs with my son as pillion but the engine only had 20 miles on it before I got there so it was a steady run round. I’ll get the fastest lap award off Mr Moag next year…!

As for fuel I use whatever is available, if the engine is in reasonable condition and carb/mag/plugs/timing somewhere near you won’t notice any difference on the road between fuels. 200 or 220 main seems to do most 600cc applications (180-200 for 500) on standard tuning and compression ratios of 8:1 or less. Start butchering your engine under the premise of tuning and you need to start again with everything.
