You would be correct. I did learn something new though, offset woodruff keys are a thing.
I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.
Parts came in today. Won't be able to install until Sunday, but hoping this is the last big fix for a while.
And the problem is solved. For the most part at least. With the new(er) flywheel and source/lighting coils sputtering went away for the most part. It was still running rich, so I popped the needle clip from the 3rd position to the top and it cleared right up. I was able to rev throughout the range without any breaking up. It's still popping on decel but I'm going to keep tweaking carb settings and check for more exhaust leaks. Main jet is back to the 230 I started with, so I'm going to probably order a 220 and a 210 to see what happens.
I also started wiring up the lighting. Unfortunately both voltage regulators I have won't work, so I'm waiting on the proper one to get in.
Never got around to ordering main jets, but I did manage to wire up the voltage regulator and a Sigma bicycle speedometer. After verifying calibration with GPS I am road ready.
Yesterday I wanted to see if I could click off some test miles on various terrain and see how it would act. Temps have been warmer, and it was immediately obvious I'm still too rich. Top speed indicated was 72 and it ran out of steam sputtering. Back road gravel and some rough terrain were of no concern though. Lobbing along with the 15/42 gearing was perfect keeping torque where I need it. Once jetting gets tuned in better I may consider getting an "on road" sprocket and chain set.
Another thing I will need to address is my tank bag covers the vent on the gas cap. Standard tubing will just kink and collapse with the bag on top, so I may get another cap to experiment with. I'm thinking I can cut the straight nub off and epoxy a 90* plastic or brass elbow on.
