Aaaaaaah, So much better on 2 cylinders!!

Repaired the broken terminal on my rear coil. Set the jets back to 40/140F, 40/142R, 2 shims.

Started up instantly, revs up like it should. Couldn't street test it last night as it was raining. But boy how sweet it sounds now on both cyliders!

Can't wait to hit the street tonight after work and see how the jetting is. Going to check the balance again as I did it against one cylinder that wasn't firing.

No wonder I had trouble getting to 65mph, tough on one cylinder!

Couldn't agree with you more. From the bike apart, engine out, parts all over the garage, to together, troubleshot and running, feels great.

Pictures this weekend after I have a chance to wash her.
