ok, wow, I think we are on to something. I revved her with full choke on several times and no bogging at 4k anymore...while I feel stupid im also relieved. what's the cure? raising the needle or a bigger needle jet? happy to get any advice to experiment with it.
Ok. I ordered “80 for the primary jets which I believe mostly influence the mid range. I have the 120-122 for the secondary. This little trick with the choke was very effective for the response. Thank you all. Really appreciated.
I'd be checking and maybe modding the vac tap first too
My TI coils show an LT resistance of about 3 ohms on
common digital meters so forget the Honda spec Showa stuff.
Many TI coils need to be current, not resistance, tested on the HT side at 24v (abt 40 mA IIRC)
When you put the strobe on the thing did you swap the HT trigger probe
to suit the channel you were working on before looking for the marks?
Mind you, as you've added K&Ns you may have just buggered up the jetting
ok, I decided to replace the airbox and got rid of the pods. when reinstalling the carbs I screwed in 2 size bigger jets for the primary and secondary. engine reacts and accelerates beautiful now. shouldn't have played with the AirPods to begin with. thank you all, I've learned allot in this process, an while I didn't need to do all I did on the ignition side I actually now tested each and every component and know what to expect/look for. also took the carbs out like 10 times, takes me 2 minutes in and out...
I now have another problem of overheating or at least erratic behaviour of the temp gage and overpressure. I will post another thread.
