It's Alive !!!!
but not without it's issues.
Gas leak was the bowl gasket I removed to change the jets. It has a 1/8 inch gap in the oring. Bought oring of similar diamater and cut small piece to put into the gap. Coated it with gasket sealer and conditioned. Leak gone.
No spark was due to the four pin connector from the pickup coils had so much corrosion, I am surprised it worked before I took it apart. Cut off the 4 leads and butt spliced them together. Bike started almost before I had the starter button completely in!
Voltage at idle 13.0Vdc, at 4K 14.1 Vdc (measured at the battery). New stator & R/R from Rick's looks on target.
Now for the problems:
Clutch: Grabbing way out, probably the last 25 % of travel.
Poor performance: Shaved and MAC exhaust installed. Rejetted to 40/140F 40/142R. Almost feel like ignition but its not. Bogs down low and seems to fight itself up top. Considering the carbs need to be synced???
Would a carb re-sync be warranted after what I have done? Can it be done without some elaborte fixture? Did not thouch the mixtures screws, but that should effect idle only.
Ideas are welcome.
