Re: Just went in to adjust valves for some 'clack'n and now #1 pipe cool and idles horribly

I haven't done anything so far. No time atm but I'm wondering how this could have happened. Remember that before I went in to redo the clearances it was running great then upon opening it up I find the clearances were too much at least on #1 and another or two cylinders. Adjusted then torqued to spe...

Re: Just went in to adjust valves for some 'clack'n and now #1 pipe cool and idles horribly

At least we've identified the problem. Unless you actually have a hole in your piston, zero compression can only be caused by a valve that is stuck open. I'm feeling like the head is going to have to come off. I also compared #1&4 valve distances from where the rockers connect to the top of the...

Re: Just went in to adjust valves for some 'clack'n and now #1 pipe cool and idles horribly

So what am I looking for? Clearances for #1 are perfect. How do I suddenly have zero compression? What's the manual check I can do rotating the shaft? From my view things look like they're moving up and down as they're supposed to. What broke where when and how?

After adding oil:

I didn't include #1 as it produces ZERO compression. Explains the cold pipe.

So I guess I'll be quadruple check the clearances. I'll be back...

Re: Just went in to adjust valves for some 'clack'n and now #1 pipe cool and idles horribly

And how do you make sure they're snug enough so they're air tight(to give accurate readings) yet not so tight I lose the adapter?

Re: Just went in to adjust valves for some 'clack'n and now #1 pipe cool and idles horribly

So far looks BAD

But how do I get this out??

Why did they make them like this so you could lose the adapters in there?? I should make a harbor freight employee come out here and take it out. Unless I'm doing something wrong. Totally possible lol.

Re: Just went in to adjust valves for some 'clack'n and now #1 pipe cool and idles horribly

What is the compression like on #1 now? I notice that you try a LOT of things when something goes wrong. I hope that you are testing things after each adjustment. I think we already discussed "chasing your tail." Yes we did and I've since tried to check one thing at a time. Last time it w...

Re: Just went in to adjust valves for some 'clack'n and now #1 pipe cool and idles horribly

"If I turn idle screws in all the way I can bring down to 1.5krpms." How many have you got? Shouldn't there be only one idle screw? At this point I would say "Whatever you did, undo it and put it back how it was and don't worry about a little bit of any rattle from a nearly 40 year o...

Just went in to adjust valves for some 'clack'n and now #1 pipe cool and idles horribly

Bike was running fine except for some 'clack'ing so I just went in to check the valves and low and behold had to redo them. This time to 10lbs torque per Clymer so nothing gets loose, but now it runs horribly making spitting noises and #1 exhaust is not hot so I re-did idle adjustments per book(quit...

Re: can anyone recommend a saddlebag setup for my bike?

my question is how to install them under the seat? it seems impossible without heavy modification. it would be perfect installed under the seat cushion. all nice though. I just gotta secure them better. they have rings on the inner outside I guess your could put cable through to lock them to your bi...
