- NGK recommended plug :- B6HS Stock No 4510 or Iridium BR6HIX Stock No 3419. )
Bantam D10, D13, D14, B175 and Bushman - Original recommended plug:- Champion N4. ) 0.750 inch (19.05 mm) reach.
- NGK recommended plug :- B7ES Stock No 1111 or Iridium BR7EIX Stock No 6664.)
Most Bantam Club members recommend the use of Iridium plugs to give good starting and excellent whisker free running. These plugs have a very fine centre electrode of only 0.024 inches (0.6 mm) diameter in rare and very hard Iridium material.
The stock no is useful when looking for a plug such as in Halfords as this number is printed on the end of the box. All plugs can be obtained cheaply on eBay as there are a number of sellers with postage as low as £0.50 whereas some have free postage but a higher plug price.
Recommended plug gap for all the above plugs:- 0.018 to 0.020 inches (0.45 to 0.55 mm).
When fitting a brand new plug, tighten by hand up to the sealing washer and then tighten a further 2/3 turn with the plug spanner. When re-fitting a used plug, tighten by hand up to the sealing washer and then tighten a further 1/12 turn with the plug spanner.
Thanks to Jubilee

Since its origin in 1909, no other trial has captured the imagination of rider and spectator in the same way. Riders are lured to the SSDT from all over the world, and the event has the same status to trials riders as the Isle of Man TT has to road racers.
In a word, it's spectacular!
Some very cool photo's and info. (found on ozvmx.com)

"This must rank as one of the most famous motorcycle travel books of all time, but it is not that well known and deserves better recognition. This is an amazing adventure that captures your interest in people and places aswell as the bike." M. J. Tavener (England)

No excuses with this motorcycle, no silly misfires. "Oh it might be the plug the buyers says.... No sir! If a bantam is stored for a long periods of time, the crankshaft seals shrink. Thats your misfire and lack of power... Full engine strip down!" ccooeecat

Bsa was the largest producer of motorcycles in the world and it was the Bantam that was to prove the most enduring and arguably the most popular British bike of all time. Small but perfectly formed, more than 500,000 Bantams were produced and sold by Bsa from 1948 until 1971 in a wide variety of configurations (road, trials and competition use). In its familiar and somewhat radical white and orange colour scheme, the Bushman variety offered a higher top gear ratio than the others and was particularly popular in rural New Zealand with its incredibly simple mechanics and light geometry. The Bantam holds a special place in New Zealand's motorcycle history. From its war effort origins to its being the basis of many backyard performance modifications for the grass tracks of the '50s and '60s, it was the Bantam that gave meaning to the word 'utilitarian' - inexpensive, simple and long-lasting. Even better, in amongst the big singles there was a growing number of riders who preferred the light simplicity of the Bantam - Stan 'Tommy' Tucker was one of them. Easily modified, the Bantam made a surprisingly competitive ride in the right hands and would quite often give the big singles a run for their money on tight courses. With its genuine patina and a particularly charming hand-painted 'Bushman' decal, this bike was acquired by Stan Tucker from one of his early apprentices in exchange for one of Stan's aging British singles and is accompanied by the original manual and ownership papers.
