    I`m too lazy to fix my two flats on the reflex, so it looks like the cota 200 this weekend. Not sure if i`m riding or not. I want to chase Garrett around on the sportsman loop. Twin shock = sportsman maybe? Gonna be hot, beer a loop weather. Starting to like this vintage just have fun attitude.

    Slotting the cam wheel and advancing the timing a few degrees is worth doing. But the same sort of effect can be achieved through fitting a pit bike CDI, which seems to advance the timing faster at lower rpm.

    Wiring is a bit fiddly though, and as slotting the cam wheel is FOC, the cam wheel modification is the one to go for, unless you have a faulty CDI which needs replacing anyway.

    Valve timing and ignition time do not do the same thing or affect the running in the same manner. You should stick to your one liner.

    I wonder how many TLR's have you fitted pit bike CDI units to, and what effects this resulted in when you ran the bikes on the dyno?

    Fitting a PB CDI and a simple modification of the stock air box makes the TLR run an awful lot better. Its a bit more involved than slotting the cam wheel, but works very well and provides increased torque and more top end power.

    The cam gear I bought took a whopping 45 minutes to install and (as previously stated) cost a mere $19 delivered to the house. I'll take that over guessing on which garbage Chinese CDI to try and make work, and hold out hope that it's dubious quality makes it last for more than a year. And no I did not run it on no fuckin' dyno afterward. I went out and won a Trial with it.

    If you have the time to screw around with adapting garbage Chinese electrics to reliable Honda motorcycles and dyno them afterward, that's wonderful. I wish I had that kind of time. Mayhaps starting you own thread (with pictures!) on these mods would be a good idea. :thumb

    So what are you saying?

    You don't put your trials bike on the dyno or STFU? :lol3

    Nice ride 2nd day Brewtus. Fortunately I will not ride sportsman at Sipapu. A little too hard on the ole` bike. Nice pics Gordy thanks! Might ride Int and ? non -comp just for grins depending on what bikes I have! I had lots of fun riding with Garrett. He had me by a point after two loops!! :eek1

    ^^^ No picture here Jim. Bob's son came up to me after 2 loops and said he was beating his Dad. I told him he had better ride awesome because old Line Away will pour it on for his third loop. Of course Bob did just that. It's just a matter of time for Garrett to be railin' over his Dad.
