Default Re: New Build (raw engine)

Well the bike came back today. The reason was that it would not run. I checked it out and there was no spark. I thought it would be another bad coil, but it was just the wires came apart. The new owner installed a wire loom, one of those twist on outfits I like them but he bumped the plugs and they came apart. I installed butt connectors in place of the plugs, runs good. Well runs good after I replaced the intake gasket. You would think that after about a million of these things were made they could get a gasket to hold up for more than a few days. I also moved the needle down as much as could be, to lean it out a little. It is still blubbering but Ill have him bring it back after more break in. The lad was going to ride from Long Beach to Redondo beach, about twenty miles each way, should take a while. A bit of a ride for a break in, will keep you posted. Have fun, Dave
