fitted a new set of NOLOGY HOTWIRES IGNITION HT LEADS and LAPTOP TUNE ABLE CDI
AS THE COPs I HAD FITTED KILL THE OLD CDI
now off to play on the dyno (rolling road)
THAT WAS FUN spent most of the afternoon sorting the timing AND RESETTING THE 41MM FLATSIDE CARBS(UP #10 ON THE MAIN JETS)AS THE ENGINE RUNS 12 TO 1 PISTONS AND WAS GETTING SOME PINKING
IN THE END WE GOT A LOT MORE PULL IN THE LOW REV RANGE AND MID RANGE THE TOP END WAS BEST OF ALL WITH 5 DEGS ADVANCE ON STD TIMING
WILL HAVE TO SORT THE FUEL NOSSELLS ON THE Nos NEXT DUE TO LACK OF GAS AT MY MATES WORKSHOP (ORDERED LARGE BOTTLE TO REFILL MINE A FEW TIMES)


I CANT HEAR A THING NOW EVEN WITH USING EARPLUGS
