Talking Finly got it running right.

The below was my first post and I'm glad to say it is running like a well oil machine now. Not totally sure what was wrong but my thinking it was the R/R (was charging 12 up to 18 volts) that was giving me all the problems. With all the posts I looked at, I did all the mods as long as I was going though everything. Relay for the coils, marbled, added relay and volt meter, new R/R and other things that people would think I'm crazy for doing. Bottom line is it is running and you guys are the ones that helped me getter done were a few shop couldn't. So a big Thanks to ya all.

(This spring I had new plugs and the carburetors rebuilt. That took care of the flooding at start up but now when I go to work I might get any ware form a ľ to 16 miles down the road and it start losing power (like it’s flooding) and I have to pull over and stop. I set there for just a minute or two with it idling and then I take off and it might act up again or not. The next time it will run like I think it should (very strong). The caps are off the air fuel and they are both set at two turns. Right now I do not like this bike all that much. Does anyone have any words of wisdom for me on this?)

pour some seafoam in it and check your gas cap vent and make sure that it isn't partially stopped up.

Well, it sounds like you hit on what ever it was that was causing the problem. No telling what it was, but I'm happy to hear you are on the road again!

I'm 90% sure it was the R/R that was the problem. It would charge 13v at idle and going down the road 17.5 to 18v. I found a post from a long time ago and his problem was real close to the same as mine and that was what his was.
