Dear GeN subscribers. I'm not getting any younger. It is time to think about this forum and website going forward (as they say in management speak).

Hi, eventually resolved problem with 89/90 RC; duff pick up coil/harness. Resistance all good and insulation when measured; not good when tried to use! I also stripped down carbs when she refused to start and found broken mixture screw which I thought was the cause of rich running; replaced with help of Zac who has given much support. At the same time I stripped the carbs and found that the original EV27 carb had been replaced with an EV 30 and With the larger jets for for that carb. I would like to replace those with the correct 2 x 140 main jets and 46 Pilot jet to see if that reduces the rich running and bring the mixture screw back into play; it is fully seated and the bike runs ok with slightly sooty exhaust, however it does run! Bob Wright is checking his stock of jets as I type but if any one has any sparesIā€™d be happy to part with silver ( or Plastic).

Thanks Zack
