Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

ANY change in idle is an indicator of a leak. Maybe the leaks on the cool cylinders are more severe than the hot ones. This is good. At least we have a result we can work with. :D What are you spraying on them? Edit: I just re-read and saw you're using carb cleaner. Stay away from carb cleaner as it...

I might like one of those even better. I have one exactly like his though and it works fine for me.

Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

https://s20.postimg.org/46n88amil/solenoid.jpg What are these wires going to? Is it an inline fuse holder with a 30A fuse? If not, it should be. This is not the cause of your trouble (no matter what they go to), but it is something that will need tending eventually. It originally came with a 30A bl...

Re: Go Kart wiring

Sorry about your crash. I guess you came out mostly ok? Here is a bare bones wiring diagram. It is for the DOHC Honda's of that era, but it will work on your bike as well. This is the bare bones wiring diagram, just the minimum to make it run. Build this and add whatever else you want/need: http://i...

Re: recommendations on a <$120 multimeter?

No, it will overheat quickly. Not a problem when you are riding because (obviously) there is wind going across the cooling fins. Edit: I have for you, the deal of the century. I appealed to people smarter than me with your problem. A man known as Holysmokes on the DOHC custom forum has offered his a...

Re: recommendations on a <$120 multimeter?

does it test diodes and capacitors and temperature and rpms? Speaking of temperature, make sure that, while you are working your bike in the garage, if you have it running for anything longer than a minute or so, that you have one or two large fans blowing across the engine. As you know, it is air-...

Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

Two things can cause bad compression--rings and valves. If it is rings, adding oil temporarily seals the leaks and raised compression. If it a leaking valve, the oil does nothing. That being said, your compression numbers are not so bad as to cause a cylinder not to fire--nor are your compression nu...

Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

I don't understand your question, but those compression numbers are fine. That is not the reason those cylinders aren't working.

Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

got the Clymer. Getting to it. Still tho, how would the components work for 2&4 but not when plugged into 1&3? There are no components that work on 2 and 4 or 1 and 3. Those cylinders do not operate with each other. It should be 1 and 4 or 2 and 3. BUT if you had a component that worked on ...

Re: no space between intake rocker arm and cam lobe to fit feeler gauge

as per the book 3 (and 2) is done at 2 diff rotations. In truth the Mark dont matter as long as your off the lobe. really?? Somehow I distrust that advice, from my experience small fractions of millimeters off can be disastrous. Take a look at this GIF of how a cam works. Notice that the cam is mos...
