Sorry, lost track of this thread and just spotted you looking at it.

7 is a fubar left advance pulser

The 9/5 is the high speed coil. That would normally limit you to around 5,000. Advance starts at about 1500 I think so the advance pulser likely adds to the low rev ceiling.

Not directly measured for that test is the low speed coil but likely he's not very well either maybe lowering your rev limit.

Is it difficult to start?

No worries. We all get busy. Usually takes a few tries and sometimes some starter fluid to get it going, yeah.

Ignitech or Raesan will fix both issues.

And the starting.

Your spark is very weak at cranking speed. Little stronger at running speed and would disappear altogether at around 5 grand if you could get there and I'm pretty sure the advance pulser prevents this.

I've attempted to ride one with no working advance and it was unridable.

Awesome. Thank you. I’ll start shopping.
