Got her off the lift and new Cycle Electric charging system working and got aux. driving lights working too! Fired right up but misfiring on front cylinder, WTF? New plug, same issue, swapped plug wire off of Orange, same issue, damn. Willlift the tankin the morning and swap the coil, fingers crossed. Supposed to head to Springfield, Ill.,for the “Mile” this weekend.

Added primary oil to finish clutch adjustments. Now she's mobile, I'm back to working again, yay?
Oh, also re-zip tied the cables to the bars. Had to move a few things around yesterday.

No coil swap today, got 50 miles into the run and intermittent dropping on front cylinder. Just happened to packed the stock ICM, removed the Daytona Twin Tec and put back to stock. Chose to stop at Randy’s,(Coastie56) as I felt it better to change it out in his garage rather than on the shoulder of the road. We were having an all day rain today. Fired up and got to “BKB’s” in Ohio without incident, yea! Should make“Crusty’s easy tomorrow, hope I didn’t jinx it? Then on to the “Mile”, wondering about rain over there. Not for me but for the racing.

I live maybe 5 miles from the track.... not looking good as far as the rain. Looking at a 90% of rain on raceway... 80% chance on Saturday.
Always seems to rain on the mile weekend.... never fails.
