so this has been a trouble shooting nightmare. got past the coi and not I am thinking the gen is messed. hooked the volt meter up and was getting wonky readings from 13v to 3 v as the RPMs went up... sent it away for an assessment.... but this left one question. wait 4 weeks to get it back and hope that was the issue or get another gen in the meantime
so I placed a call to travis ar prarie rec here in PA and he got on the horn and ordered me a new cycle electric 12V gen alternator combo. it was pricey but they are suppose to run like a ma.
I am not joking if this does not solve the issue look for me under the bridge in the fetal position nursing a 40

me lookin sad on the way to reddeer
my bike looking sad riding in the ambulance
so I blew a gasket.. a head gasket to be exact. so I was headding to Alberta anyways so why not have pappa Z have a look see! good ole dave showed me what was up, 2 slightley pulled inserts which created a port for the gasket to let go. it backfired on me one day and that was what did er. so milled it down .004 and it was good to go!
got it home and it was still running like shit, Miah spent the next 1.5 hours on the phone, pulled the carb (oh that is what a linkert looks like inside) reset the points reset the plugs, fired and tuned the carb... that guy is a God!
the love pan is back on the road and running great!
