    Throttle stumble just after idle

    Well folks, that’s all for now. It’s done till this winter and it’s going to make the old bike show I was aiming for that’s on the 9th! Again huge thanks guys. Everyone’s knowledge here has been invaluable and certainly helped me time and time again. Till next time guys!

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    Alright guys. I want to thank everyone here for the help. Sure, the capacitor was the problem I was chasing it all along. But you guys helped me find out my plugs were bad, bike was out of time, carbs needed rejetting, timing chain needed adjusted and I needed a damn rectifier! Definitely...

    Checked from yellow wire to yellow wire in every possible way, consistently 13.8 VAC

    With the capacitor out of the circuit I had 15.7 Haven’t checked the stator VAC yet

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    This measurement will need to be taken with the bike running correct? I haven’t opened it yet but is there a way to get my meter probe into the connector with the connectors together? Edit I just realized they won’t be together to be ahead of the regulator. So the bike will still run without the...

    I’ll check into both of these when I get a minute to tear the electrical box open on it later

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    At idle it drops to around 12.5 and does run a little choppy I guess you could say, full throttle it runs up to 15.5 V +/- I imagine maybe my idle is just a little too low to maintain a healthy voltage down low? I’m speculating at this point. Thanks guys

    Correct polarity of course just hard to see with the slack I have in the jumpers

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    THE BATTERY SOLVES MY ISSUE AND BOY DOES THIS THING SOUND AMAZING! As soon as it started, it idled better and only needed the choke for about 5 seconds instead of a minute and ZERO throttle lag now! So now my question is, what do I do now?! If I leave a battery as I have it, connected directly...

    I appreciate the knowledge my friend. I’ll be back probably Friday evening with results

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    So what would be the procedure for that? Bring a wire off the positive on the battery to my positive on the capacitor and leave the positive from my PMA under the terminal with the battery wire as well? Almost as a “supplemental” power source so to speak?

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    In theory I could check the voltage over a couple minutes at idle with a meter and see what the capacitor is doing right? I imagine the tolerance for spikes and drops should be relatively tight? .5V-1.0V?

    We’ll, looks like my electrical experience is finally up to bat! I’m gonna do some research on what I can do to temporary it in there and leave provisions for permanent use. Thanks man I appreciate it

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    But what’s getting me is if ignition were my issue wouldn’t I have problems throughout the rpm range not just off low end?

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    Alright fellas followed 5twins direction on cam chain adjustment, and adjusted my valves which were all off either too tight or too loose and I still can’t get this thing dialed in. How junky are the carbs from mikesxs or tcbros? At this point I would take a bike that runs pretty good over...

    Much appreciated brother!

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    Could it be that my timing is fine now and I need to check and adjust valves? That’s the only thing I haven’t done/checked yet and like I said the bike it rideable and almost there as far as throttle response goes

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    Just pulled the acorn off to take a picture and it’s flush now. Maybe I’m losing it but I’m 95% sure it wasn’t flush as of last week when I took it off to remove the carbs??

    Throttle stumble just after idle

    Here’s a question, I watched a video explaining how to set timing chain tension and to set it so the nipple is just flush with the threads of the acorns stem. That being said mine is currently set a tad bit past the end of the shaft. Could this be an issue?

    I didn’t end up pulling the rotor as of yet, wanted to see what setting it in time would do as it was the easier of the two fixes and go from there
