ARDONS NS400R........

Post by Ardon » Tue Jun 14, 2016 11:56 pm

Aint been around much for a while but the NS has been on the road for 2 months now, after a 7 year hiatus, and I am absolutely loving it!!!

But it is boiling off all of its water within 25 miles :(

The thermostat is the first thing to test and then followed on by the head gaskets....

We will see this week!

Hoping its a knackered thermo myself.

Good to hear that you're back on the road.

The NS isn't known for running hot.head gasket issues aren't common, so hopefully it's something simple. It could be that your radiator is full of silt. Try flushing it through while you have it off to replace the stat.
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is.

The boiling issue was finally sorted out by taking a big chance and spending £125 all in on a Chinese replacement advertised on eBay as if I had any other options available!....

Fitted perfectly and works spot-on... :)

Very Happy Ardon.....

Now to fix the seat hump and the lower fairing snap offed bits and may just get it all resprayed locally if the painter is able to do it exactly as the bike is now...

The dodgy fuel tap (now fixed) has ruined the side panel beyond repair but have found a replacement on the bay in top condition for £100 which I think is a great buy....

Sadly it is not the same paint as my bikes.... :(

Also had to replace the float needles at £50 for 3 so the carbs don't leak now!!!

So after 17 years of shit, the NS4 is now finally doing what it was designed to do!!! :shock:

HI Ardon,

good to hear you have got your NS going how it should,
I have been sidetracked so haven't been able to work on my NS lately so I haven't been able to get the carbs off, how long did it take you to strip your carbs and was it a bastard awkward job ?

(five bikes to sort out for my brother due to a huge change in circumstance)

Regards Jeff
