Dude. I have more than two months to fuck something up. Give it time. Something will break- if not now, in Kiley's driveway.clem said:
I'm not confident I have the timing sorted on this thing. It's not running as good as it should, that's for sure. I haven't messed with jetting yet. Just the timing, idle and air mix. It's close. I noticed in your pics the gap between the modules on yours is before 12 o'clock. Mine is after. If yours is timed in that pick, then I think i am way advanced.crazypj said:I like the look of it, very 'vintage flat track' 8)
Oh, when I fitted Dyna to Brendon's 360 I had to adjust one side to get timing right. There was just enough material to file hole into a slot. The side that wasn't clamped is the one that failed so clamp had nothing to do with module going faulty. I think I still have the post and screw somewhere 'safe'
That really made me laugh but on a serious note it looks cool. I usually try to leave all of my open ends to get done the night before I leave for a trip when I should be packing.irk miller said:Dude. I have more than two months to fuck something up.

Thanks, but I've had that stuff bookmarked for years. This isn't the first time I've done this. Have you ever ridden a 1974 CB360 with a stock lamp? Testing has proven it to be much better than stock. It's not intended to be permanent anyway. I'll probably convert to the 35/35 halogen. I appreciate the ad, they're 9012 is not far off in price from what the 35w halogen goes for.dakine_surf said:Leds have a very different beam pattern a require a mirror and lens and normally a reflector that actually put the light where it needs to.
I love you ingenuity but brighter isn't better. A lot of science and research goes into sealed beams to perform with the incandescent bulb in them. I'm not trying to rain on your parade, but you might find that the reflector scatters the light more than focuses on the road in from of you. It's all about cutoff and focusing on the ground in front of you where the road is coming at speed. If you don't plan on using it at night, it will probably do great as a drl but I dunno if I would trust it for a night ride.
I have done tons of led and HID retrofits, when I first got into it I thought it was as simple a bulb swaps, but there is so much more.
Head over to the retrofit source and read up on some of the forums, there's tons of great info and quite a bit of moto related threads. A lot of guys are really knowledgeable. If you email the guys at the store, they are always more than happy to help and "dumb down" some of the science to help you make proper purchases and they are amazing in the customer support side

No excuse for how good or bad this setup is, but this bike won't see much night riding either. I'm building it mostly to plod around local national forest fire roads and sand roads. Most of the rural roads and swamp roads around here are sand or gravel. There are some great places to get to, but sketchy as hell on most bikes.dakine_surf said:Yeah I have a stock 71 350 and I know the lighting sucks... but I don't really ride it at night because of that.
