Thankfully not. All seemed as it should be. I do have to try to track some parts down at b&b Saturday, wanna ride along?

Sometimes the CDI will start the bike and let it rev to 4K or so but it won't go higher, hope that isn't your issue, did it rev ok? I can't watch the vid at work to know, no speakers.  Nice work with the dowel and 4x2 LOL.

hmmm I didn't pay that close of attention to the tach, but im pretty sure that it made it over the 4k mark a couple times. ill check it out next time I fire it up.

Also, that helped get them close, but to seat them clear back in I literally crawled up on the rack and bounced up and down till they popped in.
