wib714 update! new battery in and she fires quick, no backfiring! also bought a k&n filter recharge kit at autozone for $11.99, it consists of the filter cleaner and spray oil, seemed to help but only driven it down the road and back till tomorrow. but I did notice my headlights getting dim and then bright again, not sure if it could have been my fan kicking on and pulling power from it, seems like its always done this but not like it did tonight, could be the difference with the new headlamp in it as well, who knows how old the last one was may have even been the original as this one is much brighter. I just hope and pray it is not charging issues again, stator and regulator both are barely over a year old. hopefully I'll get many trouble free miles out of them and can get on to new projects like my fork seals and maybe a paint job after that!

wib714 I'll see how she acts with the new battery and do the mod if needed now or if its good I'll try to wait for winter. I had that cover off last year to do the stator so the oring should still be in good shape! thanks, crossing my fingers on no more probs for a while!

baldy The pick up coil adjustment doesn't take long at all, about an hour maybe less if you have all you need handy. The screws can come out hard so don't do what I did in my "Thank god for JB weld" thread. I have had the cover off many times and it is a shaped rubber O-ring and as long as you make sure it is in the channel on the cover you will have no leaks.

wib714 think I'm gonna have my battery load tested as well, its only 2 years old, an agm but it seems alright when its good and charged cold or not.

wib714 took my air filters off and put the ears back on, it fired right up but it was really hot out all day so it wasnt quite the cool morning start. gonna pick up some new foam filters and see if that helps.
when doing the coil pu adj is that just an oring or a gasket on that cover and about how long does it take to do it? guess I can look up the oring question but about how long?
