Gotta keep the wife comfortable/happy in case she can come. I'm the Ponder cabin, so maybe you can give me a first hand report after your recon.

Great.....I'm really looking forward to this SOUR.....along with lots of natural wonders in the area, we have a nice hot spring to relax in after some great riding.

Memorial Day weekend for the event, right? I doubt I can but I may try to come up from California. Spring is already super busy for me.

.....hell....my rig hasn't even run correctly since August.

Dang.....they couldn't fix it??? I've heard such good things about Triquest. What is your rig doing?? or should I say what's it not doing.

I could dedicate an entire thread to what I've done trying to resolve this. Dealer insisted it was my mod top airbox, then my power arc ignition.

I was sent home with 20° advance and that it was 'running better '. Bike has been fouling plugs, high rpm stuttering popping farting pooping. New hall sensor, CDI, ignition coil were tested, problem still exists. I'm going to do a valve adjustment and take back to my Old airhead BMW mechanic and see if he can sort it out.

And I was told these things are easy to work on. Easy my arse .

Fingers toes eyes, are crossed.

That was done first.

My hope is this; The Hall sensor was failing, giving a bad spark. The timing advance combined with a failing hall sensor, combined with the fact that I am 1k km from a valve adjustment is making this thing run poorly.

Re-adjust valves, correct the timing, re-adjust carbs = Solution

Upside is, my BMW mech has already made improvements tuning the carbs, and this thing really takes off-the line now. Once the farting issue is resolved :boogie:

Assuming we get it resolved :bow:
