    Thanks, much appreciated hearing that from a guy who won a botm with his cl100! I did give the electronic ignition a shot the other day, but had some issues. I got it running but it wouldn’t rev up off of idle at all, so definitely some bugs to work out. I know the circuit should work though...

    And this is how she sits in her current state. Nothing spectacular, but I think it’s cool. I built another custom side cover for the left side, and put 100 badges on both sides, similar to what would have come on the bike. Both covers are definitely 10 footers, but someday maybe I’ll put some...

    Well I followed a pretty generic break in procedure and have been riding it around the neighborhood for the last few days. Have only put probably 20 miles or so on it so far but it already feels pretty good. I rented a compression tester today and I got it up to around 140 psi. That was with the...

    Parts from David silver spares showed up in the mail today so after work I was able to get it all thrown back together and got the ol girl running again. Did several oil flushes before starting and i will probably do one right away after breaking in the rings. Ran it for about 30 seconds before...

    I have heard of this but I wouldn’t have thought it would go back as far as this bike? Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    When people ask I’ll tell them this is why I only did a lap… make me sound all smart and stuff Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    Worked on the e-ignition project a little more. Made a trigger out of an oil lite bushing and a high temp magnet. Just used a hand file to make the notches for the mechanical advance. Everything functions properly and the trigger activated the sensor just like it should. Also got an old Sun...

    It is non-ferrous for the most part. Some globs of it did stick to a magnet, but consider that the rings that weren’t broken were very worn, so in theory there could be some ring material in there, and like I said I’m sure the po never cleaned the filter so it’s likely everything in there...

    Cylinder is back from machine shop, looks very nice, now just waiting on rings and some other engine stuff. I checked the oil filter today for the first time since I’ve owned the bike, which is stupid, I know I should’ve done it before now, but long story short there was a fair amount of metal...

    Machinist said the same thing. There is some wear but it doesn’t seem too bad. He said it likely won’t be a perfect seal but it’s not gonna hurt anything. I’m not going to stress over it too much unless it ends up really affecting compression a lot. If that’s the case I’ll find a piston and put...

    Dropped the cylinder at the machine shop today. Bore came back at 50.5, which is what it is from the factory, so a hone and some new rings and we should be back in business Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    I’m definitely planning on using a magnetic pickup tool, but I hadn’t considered compressed air. The guys that have been doing this stuff for years never cease to amaze me, and just when you think you have a pretty good idea of what your doing lol. Like I said, I’m pretty sure nothing fell in...

    Well when I bought this pig I never did a compression test, I just decided that it ran well enough for me, and if compression was a little low, so be it. A few days ago however, it was smoking out of the breather a little bit after some harder riding, so I pulled the oil cap off while it was...

    Im not sure, I looked briefly but didn’t find any info. It’s entirely possible that the magnet just doesn’t get that hot and so it doesn’t really matter, but in the event that it does become an issue I did find some neodymium’s that operate up to like 300f so I can always go to that. I can’t...

    Finally got the pcb’s that I ordered for my little electronic ignition experiment a few days ago. I ended up with a short circuit on the first board and ruined it and a transistor, thankfully I ordered extras and I was able to get one together today and test it. I used a magnet spun by my drill...

    Hmm, hadn’t considered that. Guess I should look at the simple things first. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    I am having some issues that I hope someone here might know how to fix. I always try to get the bike up to temp before taking it for a ride, and it always runs very well. Steady idle, and it will idle for as long as I let it with no issues. But after I ride around for a while and come to a stop...

    I’ve had good luck with them. I received a faulty float once from them and they sent me a new one no questions asked immediately, so good customer service if you ask me Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON
