Exactly...I believe it is genuine high quality 90 weight Imported North Korean recycled 3rd generation navel aircraft grease mixed with school lunch ingredients blended with secret Chinese additives that includes sand from Afghanistan, special factory soot and Hong Kong peanut butter. Secret stuff or sure. I scrape it off and save it in a jar for a conversation piece as it glows in the dark.

I bit the bullet and bought a better rear sprocket set-up. My "ah-ha moment" was when I was turning over the engine by turning the rear wheel.... I could hear the spokes "pinging" from the sprocket twisting them. Might not be as much an issue with the 12ga spokes, but these are definitely lighter spokes.
This is the link:

I also looked into trying air-compressor intake silencers as an air filter just for S+G.... since I know a fair bit of noise comes from the intake. They'll have to be modified to fit the NT carb, but they're cheap.
Here is the link to one of those:

I see no measurement for what hub diameters that adapter fits. How do you know if it's the right size for your hub?

Also a heads-up.... My magneto came with BOTH the Blue and White wires soldered to ONE terminal. It's almost as if the new "No White Wire Magneto" was made to have a White wire, lack of terminals be damned. I know that if I had intended to use the White wire for ANYthing, it would've affected the firing for sure. I'm going to try and find a 3-wire coil, just in case I do want to experiment with a lighting circuit.

Here's what I've got....

Still in a holding pattern, waiting for the new CDI to try out. Driving me nuts. Also, the drive chain makes a binding noise no matter how I mess with the alignment of the rear sprocket. Can't wait to try the upgraded one to see if it helps.
