Interest has been sparked! Let's talk when you get closer to selling. That is if you can force yourself to part with it. I have a mint '85 that is ridden daily just to satisfy my love of getting on it. I was, however, not satisfied with the E3s and went back to the E2s. It seemed that I broke the rear tire loose too easily when accelerating. Some front end slide when cornering hard as well. My voltage went from the 13.8 you mentioned to 14.5 after completing the soldering in place of connectors. If you want to keep the connectors, perhaps ensure the fittings are all lubed up at the stator, rectifier and starter relays. Just a thought. Personally, I have used both sea foam and Techtron in different bikes. After a round of Techtron about 2000 miles ago, I went to Lucas instead recently. (I use it in an old truck with great results.) The difference between Techtron and Lucas was extremely noticeable in my GL. Hence, the E3 rear tire change back to E2. As others have said, this 1200 Ltd will knock the 1500s off regularly in performance. Enough rambling.
