Rode a hundred miles or so this afternoon. Nice. The bike ran good. Still can't get the bike started very easy with this mag even when warm. The spark seems real weak on it even after cleaning the magnet. I'm not going to be able to put up with a bike that is so lame to start for very long so I'll probably send the thing down to Hunt and see if the magnet should be replaced.
**Update** I rode the bike downtown to the Art Walk rigamaroll.. came out to leave and damn if the chopper gods didn't smile on me. The thing started third kick, didn't retard the mag.. didn't choke the carb.. just kicked with a little throttle and it was running.. aint no thang..haha.. I tried to hide the shocked look on my face and make like it always happens like that. It used to at least .. in the pre mag days. In reality I was pretty much resigned to the fact that I was going to be the guy with the fancy old bike that wouldn't start. Thank you chopper god for smiling on me this evening.. most of the time your laughing your ass off at me but I wont talk about that now.
