Flywheel re-magnetising north of the border?

Flywheel re-magnetising north of the border?

Post  Blair on Wed Aug 04, 2010 7:09 am

Does anyone know where I could take my 8E engine's flywheel to be re-magnetised in / around the central belt of scotland? I know that villiers services do this job, and I have been well served by them in the past, but it would be good to find an engineering works that could do this kind of thing closer to home.

My engine's flywheel is the same age as the rest of the bike (56 years old), and my Francis sometimes 'acts the goat' starting when hot. However, once running at moderate throttle, the ammeter needle swings about 33% round to the right. Would this happen if the flywheel had lost significant magnetism?
