Succesfully installed new ignition stator coil last week and test rode yesterday. The bike is running stronger than ever, but I'm afraid my next job will be the main bearings as slight amount of in/out and side-to-side play was noted upon flywheel installation :whiner: . I was very careful to set the timing exactly where in was prior to this repair. However, now I notice that if I give the bike a half hearted kick it kicks back at me. It never did that before. I'm positive that I didn't advance the timing---it's a tad to the right of the center mark. Is it possible with the spark being much stronger that a weak kick will give a good enough spark to kick back, as the weak kick doesn't have the momentum to push the piston through the cycle effectively?
