Cleaned carb. Changed plug, plug cap, cdi, ht lead. Still no joy. But because it was night I notice the lights are going off when it happens. Lights go on and off when I shake the bars. Do now I'm thinking there is a wire rubbing and shorting in the headset. Jaysis!!

Well that went way better than expected!

The Y axis on my mill is not large enough to move over the full width of the head, so I had to do one side at a time and flip it around half way through. I was worried about getting it lined back up.

I had a BGM tap and the reserve light stopped working after a week.. The float just stopped floating.. I told Scooter Center about the problem and they sente a new one... Check with a flashlight and see if your float is actually floating..

Is that the Scooter Center Ancillotti seat? If so, you're the only other person I've ever seen with one..

Looking good Ssteam177. You noticed that your speedo cable is coming out?

Vader gave me a tip for these conversions (which I still haven't done yet) and that's to substitute the SS180 speedo cable. It's shorter so you don't have that extra big loop sticking out.

See you at VH.
