Gunson Colortune Single Plug Kit

Gunson Colortune Single Plug Kit

This is effectively a glass spark plug. Colortune has been about for years and is a very simple, yet effective tool. You replace the standard spark plog with colour tune and then start the engine. You can actually see the colour of the burn inside the combustion chamber. If the flame is very yellow then the fuel mixture is running rich. It's no substitute for a proper dyno run, but it is fabulous for diagnosis.

Sadly we are again awaiting new stock of this popular tool

Bike-It Xenon Strobe Timing Light

Bike-It Xenon Strobe Timing Light

This is very affordable timing light for those who only want to set up the odd bike. It is not at the same level as the Gunson versions, but is much cheaper to buy and can be used to dynamically time a bike engine.

It is only suitable for use from a 12volt supply, but you can power the timing light with a 12v battery and still check the timing on a 6volt bike or even one using an old fashioned magneto for that matter.

BikeIt say it has a 1,000,000 flash capacity and is sold as being useable in daylight, though we suspect not in bright sunlight. It has built in protection should one connect it up the wrong way round to a battery.

VacuumMate Vacuum Diagnosis Tool

VacuumMate Vacuum Diagnosis Tool

We would be hard pushed to exaggerate the pros of this tool! The only downside is the price - it's not cheap! We have been using this tool in our workshop and it has paid for itself over and over again!

In static mode it measures the vacuum in the carb intakes or throttle bodies (in the case of fuel injection), and allows you to easily balance the carbs / throttle bodies so much more quickly and more accurately than with standard vacuum gauges. Since the demise of mercury manometers, when the nanny state took them away cos mercury is poisonous, we had never seen anything that impressed us ... until we found this tool at a trade show and were blown away. When balancing carbs/throttle bodies it's fairly important to have the tickover as specified and with the flick of a switch you have a very accurate tacho!.

The biggest bonus however is the ability to measure dynamic intake vacuum. In Dynamic mode you measure the peaks and troughs of the whole cycle, instead of just the average vacuum level. This is displayed in an LED 'bar chart' across all four cylinders and will indentify leaks on the induction side and leaking valves on either inlet or exhaust. We have found this feature invaluable when working with classic bikes. This tool's so much more than posh vacuum gauge set. VacuumMate has an internal battery and can run on either that or you can feed the tool from the bike battery with the supplied lead and clips, which also charges the internal battery.

VacuumMate is a very well built, waterproof tool designed for a long life. It come is a well made carrying case with loads of adapters. It is worth every penny of it's price.

Dial Guage Ignition Timing Set

Dial Guage Ignition Timing Set

Many bikes, especially classic two strokes like Kawasaki H1, H2, S1, S2, S3, KHs etc had inaccurate ignition marks from the factory, some so bad that if you timed the bike from them you would be holing pistons! Many factory workshop manuals admit this. Many set the timing mark as a piston height before TDC (Top Dead Centre). This means that you screw the applicable adapters into the spark plug hole to hold the dial gauge in the correct place and turn the engine over until the piston is shown by the dial gauge indicates the piston to be at the top of the stroke or TDC. You can then turn the engine backwards until the dial indicates that you have dropped the correct amount eg Kawasaki S2 fires with the piston at 2.4mm before TDC (BTDC) and you can then re-mark the flywheel or back plate correctly. This kit contains a dial gauge, extentions for the dial gauge plunger, adapter for the dial gauge and an extention for this adapter and adapters to fit 10mm, 12mm and 14mm plug holes. This is a professional set but, as can be seen from the photo, the plating on some of the adapters leaves a bit to be desired. Whist we don't like the qaulity of finish it is a perfectly useable product at a very good price.
