    Spades,
    Congrads, very impressive.
    I give you all the credit.
    The engine sounds great.

    Dolphin13, it seems to run about the same as before. Mine's still corked up since I ride through a bunch of residential areas to//from work. My front light is smidge brighter, but after checking out the squadron I realize how wimpy it is (55w bulb).

    I recognize the hyperlights, but which LED 1157 bulb did you use?

    Hoping you're still subscribed to this. So what eventually was found to be the culprit? Did you try the old CDI once you'd gotten it to run 100% of the time? Was it the coil? You're leaving me hanging here. :)
