Yeah. Might have been a combination of stuff. It runs much better now. Just the low speed that’s an issue now. Carbs have to wait a couple of days though, we’re going away on a family trip this weekend.

That is one good thing about machines, they can usually wait for you to get back to them.

Replaced the no name ignition coils with a Bosch 4cyl waste spark coil.

Now she purrs like the middle aged cougar she is. What a relief.
The stall when hard braking to a stop or rocking it on the pegs are also history!!
I noticed that the bike is now consuming a whole lot more power from the regulator/rectifier which I guess is another sign that the new coil is working much better.
I have a micro relay that I will be wiring into the ignition circuit so that the small electronics box doesn’t need to supply the coils with the full power.

Thanks!
Next issue, the speedometer.
I’m guessing it is beyond repair at this point.
The case around the magnet has more or less disintegrated.

It boggles the mind that no one makes a new drop in replacement for it. I mean this speedo was used on a lot of different bikes back in the day.

I think that is the exact problem. There are a million of them out there. If you do a search on Flea Bay there are pages and pages of them available.

Yeah a million in the US and with MPH instead of KMH h fortunately.
Is the CB speedo compatible? Seems like a lot less wiring compared to the 82 GL.
