I think I have some spare ones in different sizes lying around. You are welcome to pick up what you need.

This is what I have picked up. Would look more appropriate on a vintage bike though ...
If not, you can buy a 0.3mm HSS drill bit locally.
Cool !!!, the switch looks classy. From which vehicle?

I believe it's a replica horn switch common to many old brit bikes.
You can find an example if you visit the URL below.

That's what the horn on my dad's 1975 350 Bullet Deluxe looked like. Don't know what that black stick like thing is though. That wasn't there (as I can recall).

The black "stick" is meant to dip the headlights (and is extremely prone to breakage).

I guess you can replace it with an ammeter from the B500.

Well executed adaptation.
I was under the idea that you were going to use the relay for choke solenoid.
That's a good idea to inactivate the MIL, I would have just removed the bulb from the console.
With a 150 main jet the 500 will rip the road like a beast. What size is the pilot now?

The pilot is still sized 15.
Agreed, it would have been a lot simpler to just remove the MIL lamp but I didn't want anyone else to know that they were riding a non-EFI classic 500.

People would just wonder why my bike felt so "different", until they peered below the petrol tank.

Were you able to give the connection to the choke? Or you lost the choke facility? Because the BS32 carburetor has an electronic choke and not a manual one.

Please guide.

Bike feels like a machismo now. Idles much low. Just got it last night, so yet to test it out properly. felt a slight drop in low end torque, as i am on the 115 main jet. Will have explore with different jet sizes to extract the best of power and mileage. With carb, the entire system is become simple. Feels like there is lots of scope to experiment and explore. lets see how it goes.
Hi! I am planning to install a BS32 on my Thunderbird AVL 350. Can you please provide some main guidelines which shall be taken care of? Pros and cons?

Need guidance!

Faced my first sprag clutch failure during the weekend. Apparently, the bearing had disintegrated completely

Thought of replacing just the bearing with a newer "improved" version but it didn't work out as the ID of the new bearing was different. Hence, opted for a replacement sprag assembly.

How did you confirm the difference?. Tried fitting it or a mech/part guy said so?.
I was hoping for a similar 'upgrade' believing it to be a drop-in replacement.
