Hey Mutant,

There's no mention about the FET's current rating.

Your wiring dio looks to be the same as in my install guide.

carb has no intake leaks...

ive replaced all pertinent parts in the carb related to issue like the acv, float valve...needle...jets...gaskets etc...

anybody have an idea of what the hrc cam would need pilot jet wise? it obviously needs something different as when I took this carb off it started fine cold and hot...

sorry to repeat myself so much but Im so tired of alwasy fiddling with the bike instead of hopping on it and just go....

when the bike runs however it rips...maybe play with the needle a bit but it rips...
I had the same problem with mine when the temperatures dropped to around 0. Cold start was do-able, hot start a crisis..

What I did was close the fuel to off. grab the manual decompressor, hold the killswitch and kick it a couple of tims (6~10) then open fuel to ON again. and try to kick it.. worked for me. Problem disappeared after the temperatures got milder..

I'm not surprised by that as I rarely see such info published on these things. Thanks a bunch for checking. I was just curious if it would handle different bulb(s) with higher wattage requirements. I have an idea on what components might be inside the FET box, but since they cannot be replaced anymore, I won't be opening mine up to find out

What is it with Supertrap mufflers?

Everybody seems to love them, I haven't seen an American bike without one for a very long time...

It appears to me, that amongst other things,, they cleverly divert some of the hot exhaust gasses directly on to
our expensive plastic bits, and either cover them in black soot, or melt them into an unrecognisable sculpture.

Maybe I am just an old bushie and ex-ringer, but I can't see for the life of me why one would want to purposely, albeit unintentionally destroy or damage one's bike......

thanks,

thats pretty much the honda drill...when hot do de flood it and get some clean air in you hold the throttle wot, kill switch and decomp and cycle through about 10-15 times

used to work like a charm

however having put the hrc cam im assuming it has thrown even my pilot circuit off...

I too thought kikcback was a rich issue...my plug does look darker after doing the idle adjustment before shutdown...

in any case thanks guys

just more tinkering to do huh?

cheers

the sound was one reason...they also were the only ones who made a pipe for the dual header xrs... like you though I do not like the discs and the way they soot up the whole rear end, plus they are loud! so I havent bought one for my 88 despite the fact that it would work

most recently mental guru posted a link to the trioval mufflers for our years made in italy...waiting on some reviews to see what they are like

anywhoo

so I had a 60 in there not a 62! geeze...put in a 62 since I dont have a leaner pilot jet and it starts better...

im at 1.5 tuns out...

so would a lean condition cause a no start more so than a rich pilot jet? just wondering

I got 1 kickback but thats a lot less than before

restarted 3 times after that using the drill and she started

oh how interesting this can be! jjajajajaja

Jeez, Christian. You're doing an awesome job of "if it ain't broke, fix it 'till it is!"
On a side note, I doubt if a rich pilot was preventing you from starting. Lean is usually the problem! I'm most of the way through sorting my FCR, so I'm in a carbie frame of mind right now.

Have you seen the "Staintune" that came on the Aussie 6's? Very nice piece, nice note with or without baffle.

BTW, that phone call last month only cast me $13 gotta love Telstra!

On that lean = problem note, isnt that the same reason why the pig will break your leg if you open the throttle while kicking it over? as in, more air = lean = cast for zeh leg?

Good point. Have you seen this eyebrow thingie? Use it to deflect the exhaust gas away from the plastic. Google Supertrapp deflector to find out more.

There is also Musket Mufflers in New Zealand. They have the full range of reproduction factory mufflers to suit our Hondas and others.

I have one on my XL6. It is a very well constructed and solid muffler, bolts up to the original mounting points.

Linky...

It works marginally OK. I had one and it still allowed some sooting on fender I finally removed my Supertrapp and went with a nice DG silencer that has a pretty mean growl to it. NOT as loud as my Supertrapp even after it was repacked. I do not have the OEM dual header any longer so the options for replacement silencers are more plentiful.
