    Torn between dpep and burque because a motorcycle without a Vetter is like a turtle without a skateboard.

    Dpep for the win.

    Really could have done without all the whoopin' and hollerin' from the peanut gallery.
    Apart from that, well done to all concerned.

    Probably is. Suz, Hon, Kwak and Yam all pulled the same stroke. Make a 250 bike and then charge a considerable amount more for the same engine with bigger holes.

    Just an aside - you can keep the engine running in the presence of a weak spark by throttling it more than normal, that leads to rich running.

    No higher amperage than normal, in fact slightly less in all probability, because of the high resistance of the corroded joint.

    From what I see, it seems to be an American thing, where the CDI originated, as far as I know.
    CDI ignition was a definite upgrade on big Yank iron, and it just caught on from there, down through...

    I'm fairly sure I got a couple sets of Dyna shocks, at 13" eye-to-eye. For use on the GS, I had to shim the shock eyes in the rubber, but that was trivial. Only slight embuggerance is the 850 bottom...

    A leaky exhaust at the head can sound like mechanical mayhem.
    Preys on your mind as you ride along, thinking there's something going really wrong.

    My go-to OEM coil is the Honda MT-08, as fitted to legions of 'ondas over the decades. They have screw connection towers for easy replacement of HT leads, and are a reasonably good fit on most UJMs....

    It's crossed my mind a couple of times that if the front end on the currently most-used GS850 gets to the stage of needing another major rebuild, I might swap in the entire front from an XJ900F, as...

    Possibly a cunning ruse by Zuk to prevent cam cap cover theft. Or it just looked better without two screws on it.

    I did the same thing. From memory of swapping bit around, the advance unit of both bikes is the same, but the nose of the 79 unit (the points cam) will unbolt and the nose of the 80 unit gets put on...

    Older Vesrah were definitely better, pretty much the same as OEM, as in, fit and forget.
    I'm fairly sure Vesrah were one of the OEM suppliers back in the day.
    However, I've found that current...
