I bought some cheapo leather bags off ebay that just hung over the seat/fended and tied off to the rails on the bike. I unbolted my stock seat and put them across the fender underneath and they worked well. When I changed to a solo seat that setup did not look all that good so I cut the web between the two bags and attacked them to the rails using rubberized clamps I got in the plumbing section at ACE hardware. I don't really like having saddle bags on the bike as far as looks but its nice to be able to carry a pump rain suitsbungie cords , tools and various other things with ease. Of course these are not readily removable but that can be a good thing. I kinda would like canvas bags with removable clip action to attach them to the bike, but I went cheap. ,,,

It is important to first check for the electrics, check the spark, if low , check the plugs, the wires, the coils , the contacts..the old models have the platinum points and the newer version has an electronic unit. Check on this section. However if the spark looks good then the possible fault is the fuel. Check fuel, fuel filter, see if the carburator is dirty , clean jets. If the cylinder is flooded remove plug and flush out , The put back the spark plug , the bike will start. Hope this helps.comment.

Hi Jared-

i found this link about "Markings on Lee Enfield Rifles".

http://www.allaboutenfields.co.nz/history/markings/
Could it possibly be GR and not GA?

I also found this link regarding GRP (George Rex Proof).

Hope this helps.

Hi, Greg the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

Hi, Brian parts swapping is common with most motorcycles when it comes to interchangeable or compatible parts from one model with another "EXCEPT" for the CDI's they are year-make-model "SPECIFIC" the best thing to do is call your local Dealership Parts Department or a reputable independent shop. If your location is not near a shop then go online and find a parts catalog or "FICHE" and match part numbers depending on your criteria.

when engine start blowing the condensation out causing

i would think highly unlikely. starter does turn opposite of engine rotation in most cases.figure its a little gear turning a bigger gear. you could reverse the wiring polarity to try your theory but i wouldnt. bad things may happen if you do that.

If made in India, they have a gearbox made of metal as soft as warm chocolate. The bearing seal will need to be replaced along with the shafts and cogs. Use a puller to get it out.

  1. Fuel, Air and the lines.
  2. Tune your vehicle and get fuel especially from reputed brands like SHELL
  3. If water has entered your fuel tank this will happen, I mean Backfire and no response. This is till the water or air clears you know
  4. Service your vehicle from a person who is a specialist in Enfield's not any one.
