    Flywheel Bolt

    Just wanted to say thanks for the info and people on this site, Starter clutch replaced, sounds much better, it was not a castrophic failure, I believe the springs were getting weak, cause the marble sound only when the bike was hot, but didn't happen all the time. Thanks again everyone.

    Flywheel Bolt

    Thanks everyone, was able to remove flywheel, starter clutch parts are on backorder, fyi. The manual states 94ft pounds of torque for flywheel bolt, is that too much. The only reason I ask is the spec for the rear axel nut is like 80lbs, I usually put that at 45lbs....

    pilot screw question

    Ok, well I am installing COPS and have to put fresh fuel replace the orings. then do the pilot adj, and carb sync. The rear left cylinder is just slightly leaner than the rest of the plugs. I did notice that the lower rubber carb boot, looked like it got warmer than the rest of the boots. Thanks

    pilot screw question

    After cleaning my carbs I noticed that one of the pilot screw is missing the Oring and washer. Made sure it is not in carb. It's most likely that this occurred when I cleaned the carbs last year. With the oring and washer missing, would that show a slight leaner plug reading? I have the...

    Need Battery

    My pc680 lasted 11 years. I just replaced it. My R/R decided to fail, might have gotten another year out of the battery, anyway the R/R failure caused the new pc 680 to discharge to 10 volts. Charged up the battery, back to 12.85 volts, works great ever since. My vote is still the pc 680.

    Thanks for the help/information

    Just wanted to say "Thanks", I got a new style, used rectifier from vmax2extreme, thank you. Solid 14.1 vdc at idle, and only goes down, 13.5-13.8, with the fan running and the high beam at idle. Up to 14vdc with more rpm's. Great site/stickies/ info/people!! :punk:

    measuring stator voltage

    Thanks for the help. I measured each wire to ground at 3k Rpms and they measured 37volts. Found that my Rectifier is only putting out 12.4vdc at idle and 12.6 at 2k Rpms. Going to replace the rectifier with a fiinned one.

    With the leads in which place?

    measuring stator voltage

    I am new. Great site, been doing alot of reading. My question is about measuring the AC voltage at the stator. I have read that you can measure this voltage by measuring across 2 white wires, and also that you can measure it by the red lead on a white wire, and the black lead on ground. If...
