The cure for a bogging H1b

Since building the H1b special I always felt it never ran as well as it should, but I had no experience with one before so nothing to draw conclusions from.

Turns out during final assembly I did a crappy job of setting up the timing and the point gap! The bike always started on 1 cylinder then the others would come online a few seconds later, it also was very boggy in the bottom end.

I bought a dial gauge and took it to my good friend Lou and told him I needed the dial gauge to be able to screw down the plug hole... viola

and assembled

After some reading I retackled setting the ignition up, WOW what an incredible difference! All 3 cylinders start on the first hint of a kick, no more bottom end bog and the top end has improved drastically! If you are not setting up your points with a dial gauge give one a try.

I'm heading out for a little ride on the screamer.

Always great when a new tool works and helps solve a problem. Have a fun ride and avoid the police. I can't seem to just put around on the RD and stay out of the power band because its just too much fun. But I'll glance down at the speedo and realize that's not a good place to be and try my best to tone it down.

Scream away.
