I initially replaced the pucks when i first had the transmision apart, but the bike wasnt running. I did change the fluid and flipped the gear, and it seemed to help a little. When riding, it feels like the second gear clutch is expanding too soon, like its too heavy, or the 1st speed clutch is slipping, which is why i don't have the speed when the 2nd gear clutch expands. I will figure something out, i am not too concerned with it right now.
Ken as far as timing, my point gap is correct, I am curious as to whether it is better to advance or retard the timing.
