If reducing the "Spark plug " gap will reduce sparking voltage , I will try that too! Maybe I should try the "Ignition" coil mod and get power directly from battery and see if it makes a difference.
No don't narrow the spark plug gap. The gap for the pickup coils is what gets narrowed, the coils at the rotor/flywheel.

Mine always needs choked after a fuel stop. 😉

I took Spocksters advice, and choke it after a short stop when hot. Worked every time so far. If it sits 10 mins or so, no need, but a gas stop, I pull the choke, turn a few revolutions, and it starts right up. Hopefully when its smoking hot out, it works the same way. I think it will, and unless I have to mod something, I'm not going to waste time. The day will come, but for now, ride on!
