I've noticed that the stainless exhausts on my V50 go straw couloured if I leave it ticking over but this goes away when I give it a run.

Well done on getting the LM running though. Just in time for some nice weather (maybe).

I think that the distributor is possibly right at that point but out of synch for the other side...I've been there with that one years ago and it was a pain in the a to get right but a little bit of time and understanding sorted it...I havn't read any of the intervening posts since you wrote this so I may be completly wrong but it is possible...

It is also MY preferred option for ending it all, so it is .

WHAT THE **** , now get back to the topic in question.

If you do read the intervening posts you will see that starting on the left cylinder instead of the right made everything work as it should.

So yes, hope for some better weather soon and get a decent ride in. I do still need to get the de-linked front brake sorted, it has a habit of going spongy once in a while.

I too could do with turning the clock back 30 years, had my bike licence 40 years, I won’t be making many long trips on this one.
JAWS are my son’s initials, spent a lot of time in the garage so promised my wife I’d put his name on it.

Absolutely super looking machine.. Agreed about putting the clock back quite a few years. Talking of backs mine would take one look at that and say "you must be ******* kidding"....

Well done persevering with elektrikery ignition, I took the one off my V1000 put the points back on it runs way better, but then it was Lucas RiTa which I personally loathe

I hope it pays off, it was an expensive risk, so persevering a must.
On this project I set out with the intention of simplifying as much as possible, so with the m-unit, alternator, coils, C5, ant gravity battery and none of the original wiring or switches I am depending on as you call it "electrickery" It is nice to have minimal wiring. Only time will tell.
