Things are good with the bike. Timing it with the light seems to be impossible so i did it “by ear” a couple if times, first setting was too retarded (as in the opposite of advanced), second setting works awesome when the bike is hot, but is too much advance for an easy cold start. So a setting in the middle should make it happy, hopefully get to that this week. ALso I think the idle jet may be too rich, because now when i use the enriching lever it just floods the bike out. So, minor adjustments, but it runs and stops, and steers, kinda. The friction disk for the steering damper has shattered so there’s no damping at present, i will have to order another set of disks and rivets, might as well do the headstock bearings while im in there, but that means taking the front all apart again, so i may wait for the first snow to fly before i do that. No new pictures, so why don’t we all admire Anke-Eve Goldman, instead?
Well the new Omega alternator is in place, as is the /6 front cover (for better cooling) An all new engine harness, and a steel gas tank. I decided to leave the seat spaced back, I like the riding position better…
Now that the bike runs, I took a few minutes to bolt on some of the parts i had been waiting to install…
