|Replacement parts or accessories must be of B.S.A. origin or as approved by B.S.A Motor Cycles Ltd.|
|In this respect your attention is drawn to the Terms and Conditions of B.S.A. Guarantee.|
The object of this manual is to provide comprehensive service information for both the B.S.A. owner, and the workshop fitter, wishing to carry out either basic maintenance or major repair work. As some of the repair work described requires specialised skills and workshop equipment, the inexperienced owner is strongly advised to consult his B.S.A. dealer should he doubt his own ability to carry out a satisfactory job.
This manual is divided into sections, each dealing with a major assembly, and these are sub-divided into the individual operations required for maintenance or repair. It is hoped that by using this arrangement not only will the manual be useful to the inexperienced mechanic, but it will also serve as a reference book for the skilled mechanic.
The information given in this manual is correct at the time of publication, but in the course of constant development it is inevitable that there will be changes in specification. Anyone finding the information given in this manual to be at variance with the machine in his possession is advised to contact the B.S.A. Motor Cycles Service Department, where up-to-date information will be provided.
ENGINE AND FRAME NUMBERS
Both the engine and frame numbers, together with prefix and suffix letters, must be quoted in full on any correspondence relating to the machine or on any enquiry regarding this manual.
The engine number is stamped on top of the crankcase immediately below the cylinder. The frame number is stamped on the front engine mounting plate.
B.S.A. replacement parts are distributed through a national network of B.S.A. dealers, each of whom holds a stock of fast moving parts. Approximately 200 of these dealers have been selected for appointment as specialist B.S.A. replacement part stockists and each of these stockists holds a comprehensive stock of B.S.A. replacements. List of appointed stockists are available on request, and their names are printed in every B.S.A. parts catalogue.
In the great majority of cases local repair will be possible and this will avoid unnecessary expense and inconvenience, and the possibility of the machine being damaged in transit to or from the works for repair.
Should your B.S.A. dealer decide that Service Department attention is required he will know best how to make suitable arrangements with the factory. It is important to remember that no machine can be accepted at the works without a prior appointment. This appointment can be made either by letter or telephone.
Labour time will be greatly reduced if proprietary articles such as legshields, safety bars, carriers or fibre-glass fairings are removed before handing the machine over for repair. Accessories such as mirrors or badges should always be removed before entrusting a machine to an independent carrier.
Where parts such as cylinders, petrol tanks etc., are forwarded for repair, they should be packed securely so as to avoid damage in transit.
All parts sent to the Service Department for repair should be clearly labelled with the owners name and address, and should have attached a label giving full instructions.
