That’s what I thought, but the bowl is full and the jets are clear so... what the fuck?

Yeah. Frustratingly my compression tester broke so I’ll have to go back to harbor freight and buy another one. I don’t have a compressor for a leakdown test which is annoying.

It’s just not a particularly bright or large spark. I did gap the plug to spec. The spark is strong enough to bite me through the boot when I accidentally let my thumb touch the frame.

Annoyingly there were a million revisions of these bikes and the later CDI ones dominate the search results.

I cleaned them. Left the timing as-is since the bike supposedly ran when parked. Doesn’t even look like there’s enough adjustment in them to make the bike not at least sputter. Need to look back in the service manual and see what the timing settings are like.

Which, by the way, FUCK yamaha. I wanted to test my coils Read more

lol no I was scared as shit because it was the middle of the night, we’d had several close calls with deer, my high beam wasn’t working, and this group of riders (none of which I knew) was leaving me in the dust.

I love how none of the commenters read the article, especially the part where this is an unfinished bike that doesn’t have its bodywork yet. Sigh.

This looks awesome. I’m stoked. I wish I could buy an Indian set up with mid controls and carbon fiber bodywork and brembo brakes.

I have back problems galore and bought one of the least ergonomic bikes in existence: a 90s Ducati SuperSport. Only paid $1500 for it, then spent $400 on parts and $2000 on lawyer fees after allegedly going too fast on it.

No MK2? But the MK2 was the best!

Despite being the most common color of Insight I could not find a replacement door the same color.
