Hi guys, just a couple questions while i'm trying futilely to get my maxi running again.
First off, i changed the trans fluid. Put in type F like your supposed to. Now the back wheel doesnt spin freely and pedaling seems to take more effort? What the hell did I do?
next up, pressure. When i put my cylinder pressure gauge on it wont hold. Pressure peaks and then slowly drops, not like when i had a head gasket leak previously and it would just make shit pressure. Wondering if maybe its my pressure gauge (i think its that)
Lastly what are some odd reasons she wouldnt start? I did some work, put her back together, fired her up and checked for air leaks with starter fluid. Found one downstream of the bing and tightened the connection. Now i might as well be running it on water it wont start.
Spark plug is fine, i put a new one in. Gap at about .020 which is what I was running before. Points are as they were before, as far as I can manage without dremel, and gap at about 16 thousandths.
Air intake didnt change, jetting didnt change, seems to be getting gas just fine. getting a solid spark. i have no idea what the fuck is going on.
One thing i've been worried about is the back gasket is way thinner than what was on before. It was some kinda rubber or something, now its paper, gave me maybe 2mm less cylinder clearance, so slightly higher compression. Maybe I should put the old rubber one back on?
TL;DR wheel doesnt spin freely, lots of resistance from the trans after putting type F in. Bike wont start despite compression, spark, fuel, and what seems to be fine timing.
god i f̶u̶c̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶h̶a̶t̶e̶ love this thing
More questions: any ideas what I should be jetting with a sidebleed? More back pressure i assume changes things pretty significantly (edited)
