  1. If mr Ohm isn’t lying, I’d need a 96W resistor on each coil? Assuming that coils get 12v. That’s a lot of resistor... Will rewire the thing to relocate the fuse box and the headlight relay(s) under the seat, get it running, relocate the stock coils under the tank, get it running again, and than will get back to cops. They are mighty sexy things.
  2. I’ll give a resistor a try. Will report back.
  3. JZH, did you ever get it running on COPs? I got some 2016 CBR COPS from ebay with a harness for my 3rd gen build. At $35, i figured I'd give it a chance. So, the resistance of the OEM coils is 3ohm and the COPS are 1.5 ohm. I wonder if adding a 1.5 ohm resistor will do the trick? There was also a discussion of the old coils having a capacitor built in and the COPs not? Can a capacitor be spliced in as well?
  4. Looked like fun times. A bunch of delinquents frim from the May ride I see. Good game.

    Loaded up and truckin'

    Nice pic. The bike looks like a catdog. I'd want to see some detailed pics on how you married up the two bikes 😂
  6. Wanted to say ride it into the ground and swap the engine, but the only one I see on ebay is $2k. I would do the following: Do a leak-down and pressure test Pop the valve covers and inspect for obvious signs of ware on the cam lobes If no issues, ride it into the ground :)
  7. I put on a set of Bridgestone T30 Evos during the 2nd day of the NC trip and WOW. I don't say that often. Just Wow. Never had so much confidence during hard riding. Anything I could through at them was absorbed without complaints in perfectly predictable manner. I cannot speak to the longevity, but they held up very well to 3 days of hard riding and look like they can carry me through another NC trip with ease. Previous B-stone S21s melted away in 2-3 fun days on me.
  8. I too have never had "security" issues. Motorcycle people are mostly normal in my experience. To me, one of the most important indicators of the condition of the bike is the owner. I spend good amount of time just having a conversation with the dude (sorry ladies - it's mostly dudes selling bikes out there) and get a feel of the knowledge and the type of person the seller is. If I like him, chances are, that I will also like the bike and I will not beat him up for the money. Too much :).
  9. I am in the process of gathering the intelligence for a DIY setup. Found Turner clamps and bar for $102 Just need to understand whether this setup will work with a 929 tripple, which has little room due to a gull wing design
  10. Sorry for the jumbled up description:) The issue is that I couldn't get my idle RPM to reach 1200. At most, I could get it to idle at 1100 RPM (not 10.5K - My bad), at which pooint adjuster wouldn't turn any further. The fixed cylinder 4 was left untouched. I ended up turning RPM adjuster back towards the low side until the vacuum rose to about 20 mmHg while RPM remained at 1100. I then synced all to cylinder # 4 and called it a day. First impression is nocably smoother responce at parking lot speeds. Will do more testing and report.
  11. I am in the process of doing the sync now and can't get idle to rise above 10.5K RPM. At its highest, I can hear quite a bit of air being sucked into the starter valve openings. If I turn the idle screw down, the hissing stops (almost) and the readings on the manometer increase, meaning that there is more vacuum. Now, turning the idle screw down doesn't have much of an effect on the RPM. What I have resorted to is turning the idle adjuster such that I get 20mmHg on the 4th cylinder and then I adjusted the other cylinders to match. This incidentally is the highest RPM reading I can get at about 11K. I am using the ECU wire to measure RPM. Does anyone know why my RPM doesn't want to go up? I have soaked the adjuster with PB Blaster on the throttle body and it moves fine within a certain range, so I don't think is't mechanical...
  12. Interesting that I should stumble upon this thread today. I have been fixing my leaf blower and twisted off the bot holding on the muffler. A 1/4" stud remained protruding. I tried welding on a nut but it just twisted off. Ended up welding on a nice big glob at the end of the stud, which made it nice and red and provided with a good purchase for the wise grips. First time in my life it actually worked for me...
  13. Tranny install also ? Can I be next on the list of installs but have to have it back by TMac 2014 . Oh no. Tranny didn't even enter my mind
