With a dead stock valve train when does valve float rear its head bending valves?The 1100 will turn a lot of rpm,on mine after doing some cleaning/ smoothing on my heads/intake it turned 10 grand,I've seen it higher,a guy in Apachie Az had a 1100 with twin Del Ortos and he had a 14 grand rev limiter on it.
You have to tinker with the point gap to change 1 so the other will time right & so on, may be more trouble than it's worth.So I did the ignition timing again. I know for a fact that if you do it wrong, the bike becomes a dog. I took my time, then took it out for a test and could only get up the hill to my house by down shifting to second gear.
So i did it again. Just cant seems to get it where I think its right. 1-2 is before and after the timing mark as discussed, but when it is like that, I can get the 3-4 timing to be right on the mark and the next one about 1/2 inch advanced. I cant move the 3-4 timing any further because it is at the end of its adjustment. But as I said, it seems to run quite good at this adjustment. So I am just going to leave it there for a while.
You probably have the #2 carb set so it is causing the whole thing to hang. When balancing the carbs, no matter what the instructions say always go to the one with the highest vacuum first and balance it with the adjacent one then on to the next highest etc. That keeps you from getting the situation you have.Now for the new problem. After I adjusted the timing, I tried balancing the carbs. After fiddling with it for a while, the idle would hang up at about 2.5k. After a few seconds it would go back to 1k.
If I rev the bike, it hovers at about 2.5k -- I try moving the throttle, nothing, I pull on the carb linkage (rod from the cable to the left bank) and it comes down. The movement is not even noticeable, but it is repeatable -- rev and it stays at 2.5k -- pull the rod and it comes back to 1k.
Visually, nothing seems to be hanging. Turning the throttle and letting go, the linkage seems to snap back and bang on the idle stop. My plan is to remove the throttle cable to isolate if it is the cable or the linkage.
Any hints-- suggestions.
So after I timed the bike, it idled really nice. Like so many other times, I tried to make a good running bike a great running bike. It seems you have to make it a horrible running bike to get there. Something about leaving well enough alone. Since I changed the cam timing, valve clearance and ignition timing I only thought it the right thing to do to check it.You probably have the #2 carb set so it is causing the whole thing to hang.
