Some miles done, and both the charging circuit & misfire are both still behaving...



... But there's still a popping in the inlet tract until it's well warmed thru/ough, so while electrics to seem to have been the source of the left carb issue, there still seems to be a little something going on with the mixture or something.

I had popping all the way back from the dragon. My oil temp gauge was reading less then 50 deg C for the 200 mile ride home.

It happened at 2000 revs left cylinder only. may need a tune up.

In other news my ka(k) has a flat

Temperature is a bit of a surprise, do you have an oil cooler on it? (didn't notice when I saw it the other day, though props on the oil pressure guage ) & if so, (and thinking about how you not so long ago mentioned a unneeded bendy filter = you not having a cooler) is it direct feed or thermo fed? Re: bendy filter, I guess you don't have a cooler fitted but I can't be arsed to go back & rewrite the preceding text so I'll press on. And anyhoo with that big RS or RT fairing I'd be expecting some temp build up. But then the air you were travelling 200 miles thru/ough was plenty cold I imagine. For those that may not be acquainted DBD is not a seasonal rider, i.e. one that starts around Easter & stops Sept./Oct., & tho/ough I imagine he has Power Rangers suit stashed somewhere, in this case it's not his regular wardrobe. Indeed I might wonder whether it's a bike suit at all, and not just a Power Ranger costume - any guesses on Brown Ranger?

Should I be posting some of this stuff? Most of it doesn't meet my 'Think 3' rule - think it three times & if it still seems reasonable then say it.

I'm not sure of where the popping is rev wise as I've no rev counter, but it's about in the same range as the previously described Left Jug Drop Out*, and was there before, and has not been cured by the recent jiggling. It does seem that the majority of carb problems have indeed turned out to be electrical, and have been sorted (fingers crossed, is there an emoticon for that) for now at least. But the popping may emanate from a fuelling problem, or at slightly more of a stretch valve or ignition timing?

I've a few things to get done before the MOT in April, not least the tax @ the end of March, but the biggest 'intrusion into happy' with the bike is a reluctance to start from cold. The first start of the day is reluctant to catch, and takes a whack out of the battery trying it till it catches. So Hmmmm on that one... There's probably an emoticon for scratching the head, but I can't be bothered to look for it, and even were I to search I doubt I'm focussed enough to spot it any way so here instead are some randoms:

: 2guns

For a while there I though your Ka-Car had got itself a garage, and I was somewhat jealous of it, but then of course I got it. It's moved out & set itself up in a small apartment.


* Coincidentally the name of a band I played with in around '04?

Some of those recent R bikes, especially the ones from Kevils Speed Shop have a slick solo speedo and headlight setup.
Does anyone have a quick US source for parts likes these?
