    Feeling much better. Was out in the barn yesterday moving stuff around, wiring new lights and organizing work benches.
    Not surprised about the paper, Been staying out of there just for this reason.

    To quote the great philosopher Country Joe McDonald, "Whoopee we're all gonna Die"
    Give me a "F"

    Judging from the weasel speak from the Publisher, It was probably someone from our corporate office in Houston.

    Been reading some discussions here about total advance. I agree that backing off the 1970's peak advance is probably a good idea. Here is the curve from a 85 xt 350 CDI Box

    Have wired up a GY6 CDI box with Banshee Coil to stock TCI pickups through a relay to switch coils.
    Now just have to convince old brown to turn over.

    Thanks again for pointing out the S&W Streetstrokers. Brought back fond memories of working on the 650's . These fit much better than the pair I had in 1980.
    Nothing screams trickle down economics like these S&Ws.
