    Pin out on 1135 CDI

    I bought an 1135 CDI to go with an 1135 engine but I don't know how to connect the supply/coil side of the box?
    Can anyone tell me what colours go where looking at the connectors ?

    The problem got fixed by raising the needle by one stop.

    Thanks Big T!
    It worked just fine by raising the needle one stop.
    In fact I had done this beforehand but got mislead by a blocked main jet that made me revert to the previous setting.
  9. Off idle hesitation following 1230 piston kit fitted to GS 1150

    My GS 1150 engine has been rebored 3mm to take the Wiseco 1230 piston kit.
    Since this modification, the engine hesitates just over the 1/8 throttle opening.
    Above that it will really fly.

    I measured the GSXR 11K sprocket carrier and I believe one can safely take 5 mm away.
    As I have two of them it's worth a try.
    At the same time, the sprocket bolts will also be cut 5 mm shorter
