    The ignition might retard a bit but it could also be the capacitance of the timing lights trigger circuit delaying the strobe a bit as the rpm increases. The timing light maybe making it look like the ignition is retarding. Just something to keep in mind when strobing at elevated RPM. Anyway I like your bike and we have used KX80/85 ignitions ourselves and they worked great.

    Testing and Tuning runs all done.

    I settled on a #125 Main jet, 1 clip raised needle to richen mid range a little, and #35 idle jet.

    Wee list of things to sort before race day. I'm glad all these issues became apparent during shake down runs as any of them could have ruined a days racing.

    New exhaust hanger (existing bodgy one broke due to vibation)

    Loctite all screws and Nyloc nuts required EVERYWHERE as this engine buzzes at the dead right frequency to rattle everything loose astonishingly quickly!

    Roll on Race Debut i'm getting excited now!!!!!!

    RE-traction needed.

    Ok so I need to apologize. I have unintentionally misled you all.

    I re-checked the how much my bike weighs on the scales at the Kart track in between races this weekend just been.

    90kg full of fuel was the result.

    so 90kg - 6L of fuel at .75kg per litre = 85.5 kg with no fuel in the tank.

    So why did the load cell I used read 10kg wrong? It's simple really, that load cell is designed to measure pressures in excess of 200 tons, so asking it to measure accurately less than 100kg is at the short end of its range and therefore not as accurate.

    So don't worry lads its not as light as first thought.....

    But I myself however am as light as you thought, and no I won't be gaining any weight any time soon.....

    Ahh, good spotting, that's still a good weight for the bike for sure.

    My RG50 was 59.5kg on kart track scales with no gas. Just saying
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?
