Enfield 350 classic. Buyers guide
looking to buy a latr reg enfield.What do i need to check.
Any serious issues?
I listened to one the othe day an it sounded quite tappety from the top end, is this common?
Is the 500 a better option.
Will only be plodding around.
Very occasional two up run
Parts for the 500 are more difficult to get as you go south from the Himalayas
Exhaust pipes blue ? crack the oil lines to the heads while idling, you should have oil, if not clean oil filter or replace pump
The rattling is usually fixed by opening the side tappet cov .......Nah, usually by an Enfield Waller and not a problem
Inspect wheel bearings, throttle cable not left draped across engine.
Battery. Enfields are a bitch with a bad one
Front forks - check for oileaks
Tyres are cheap get a new set (assuming you are in India)
I am in England. Not planning on going further than Europe in the near future. 50 years and still oil line probs. What about mods?. The one i an lookig at is one ofthe last carbed 2008 reg. 1500 MILES. Or am i better of with an 500 electra?
Those engines are a bit noisy, i think its easyer with parts to the 500 in europe.
