    Test ride today...and oh what a great day it was =).

    Yes my eyes are closed in the picture...but I was a little high on life after ridding for a few hours =)

    There were a few problems though. My bike started up fine yesterday, however when I went to start her up today the 8 cell antigravity battery I am using was completely drained...bike was not on for any extended time, and I tested a different battery which worked fine and didnt drain, however I did have to bungy it to the side of my frame to get it to work. Any thoughts?

    So ive been work'n with daneil at Pandemonium on this build off party. A friend of mine and i rode the ride Yesturday. Its rite at 100 miles with 5 stops. We'll be have'n a pre-party friday at Pandemoniun so everyone just meet there eat some good food hangout and check out the Pandemonium shop.we'll camp over nite there then do the ride the next day. the 1st bike out will around be at Noonish. the 3rd stop will be my place for food a cookout of hotdogs burgers and chicken lags, you know cookout food. im do'n this so we do have to wait on a cook at any of the stops. i have a few small details to work out yet but it should be a good time. anyone who is think'n on go'n come PLZ let me know so we have enough food/drinks at both my place and pandemonium.

    Ok I think I figured out my battery issue...I don't think the PMA was grounded properly and I was running on just the battery >.<.

    That being said my hydraulic clutch mod should be here today or tomorrow, and I will be able to install this weekend =)

    Now that's a garage picture I can relate to. R/C's hanging from the roof, smoker ready to fire up, and a motorcycle project to fill in your spare time.:laugh:

    I'm an R/C'er too, just been on hiatus for a couple years.

    The charging system on my bike will be the death of me I swear...

    So im assuming you didnt swap to a pma?

    Its the best thing ever.
  17. Inevitable

    Actually the problem is I did.

    The stock charging system actually worked fine, but after all the rave reviews about swapping out I decided to go with the PMA.

    However after swapping it. It charges the battery, but just not enough. There is a slight power drain as the bike runs for awhile. I'm not sure if its the PMA, or if its the wiring, but I'm beginning to think its the PMA, because I have checked all of my wires, and then double checked and for the life of me I cannot figure out why its happening.

    Bizarre. My stock charging system was fine but I threw in hughs pma and a pamco so I could run just a sparx capacitor.

    It runs so strong now and I never have to worry about my battery. You sure it's not your battery?

    I took off the magnet from Hugh's PMA kit, and I'm thinking "maybe"? its the wires getting interaction with the magnet as it spins....I guess we will see.
  20. I just did a pma/pamco/sparx swap...why I've never done it before is beyond me now. Straight forward install. I ran a self made harness had everything on in a couple hours and fired up second kick! I'd check your battery and go from there...probably something simple that maybe got over looked.
