    Got the Amal carbs jetted nicely. 190 main/ 105 primary with a 124 needle. This thing just screams now and is a blast to grab a handful of throttle exiting corners. What a difference.
    Generator seems to be putting out power although not a whole lot. I’m showing about 12.6 but it’s charging. I pulled the voltage regulator apart but there doesn’t seem to be any way to adjust it. I’m enjoying it a lot.

    Beautiful bike .. 12.6 is not enough voltage to keep it charged..

    Yeah, you are correct. I’ll end up putting an alternator kit on it. I was hoping I could get by with the generator.
