Check your grounds - - - - - - - -
When doing my R&R mod I took the time to put dielectric grease on the remaining contacts and terminals that I didn't get around to last
Winter, and I also checked the grounds.
The person at the assembly factory who was suppose to grind off the paint where the ground is supposed to be placed was indolent and did a poor job on my bike leaving more paint than bare metal causing a weak ground.
After the R&R mod I've noticed that my bike sounds better, runs smoother and has more power after removing the partial painted surface at the grounding points with a file and steel wool.

I got cakes on the griddle.
Life ain't nothin' but a funny funny riddle,
Thank God I'm a Country Boy!"
