Re: Mystery starting and running issue.

Dyna S is proven & approved by most of the Z1OC community (Boyer does work but not as easy or robust).

Re: Mystery starting and running issue.

Boyer ignition is NOT the best!!!!!!!!

The standard ignition on a "J" is much better...... or use DYNA.

Re: NGK B8RES PLUGS

You can remove the resistors from the Red NGK's. Use a slotted screwdriver to remove the brass connector from inside the cap (where the spark plug fits). Careful as it contains a little spring and the Resistor. I just replace the little resistor with a similar length bit of 3mm diameter rod (or bolt...
