If it's facing toward the front of the bike it retards ignition timing a bit.
I can help but say.......WHAT? on this one, how do you figure rotating the head will change ignition timing?

Just curious..

Pointing the plug toward the incoming air/fuel mixture helps to increase the timing a tad as well as putting in a projected nose plug.

Personally, I think anyone who says they notice a difference from the clocking of the spark plug in a china girl engine needs to have their meds adjusted. Adding compression by filling the chamber with a projecting spark plug iffy at best, even in these weak kittens.
In any other motor, it's a good way to explore the wonderful world of pre-ignition.

In my Ram projected nose plugs are installed for emissions purposes.

Then again...that V8 is HOW much larger than these HTs?

hmm...5900cc vs 66cc

I replaced the original guts of my bullet light with parts from a newer style LED light. The LED light's control/switch didn't work, but it was a donor for the LED cluster and the battery holder. The old bullet I found in a bin'o'stuff at a bike repair shop for around $3.00. Unfortunately the plastic internal parts were very brittle to begin with, and there was a lot of corrosion on the old 'spring' contacts for the batteries. The power loss on the old bullet was ridiculous. Two new 'C' cells giving 3.37v combined, and less than 2.0v were making it to the bulb. The light looked good but didn't do much more than that.

So, to widen the hole for the lamp holder in the reflector I used the dremel with a sanding drum and widened the hole a little at a time until the LED cluster would just barely slide into it. The LED cluster is epoxied in place with JB Weld.

The original switch on this old bullet was salvageable, I drilled a small hole in the tab on the off-side of the contact to solder the pos/+ lead to from the battery box. I spliced on to the old wire and connector and ran that in to the LED Unit, then neg/- to neg/- on the battery box. Soldered and heat-shrinked every connection. There's no loss now, 6.56v at both the batteries and the cluster. I wrapped the 'AAA' battery pack in some foam and packed it into the housing. When the front is closed and latched, everything is nice and firm.

The difference in brightness is staggering, can't wait to see what it's like on the road at night.

I've done some experimenting with some led lights, some of them set up with the right reflector project the light very good while other will almost blind you when you look at them but the do not proj ct the light well, in my experience in normally takes at least a 5watt led to give good projected light.

I hope that set up works out great for and ill be curious to know how it works out.
