Greetings all after a long absence - prompted by work, restoration of other bikes and the rotten weather!
Couple of questions if I may
After a little fiddling after a long lay up, the VB600 fired up fine enough. I think I have established that I have a tight wire advance - that is to say looking at the right hand side/nearside of the bike, the mag take off is on the right, and pulling the wire tight turns the baseplate ACW. Do please correct me if I am wrong here!
Assuming then tight wire advance, bike seems start best at just a little off full retard - cable essentially slack, but following instructions and knowledge of other bikes - when it is warm, I set to full advance - lever fully forward and wire tight. When warm and at idle however, this seems to cause poor running or stall the bike - though granted I have not ridden it just yet at full adavnce. Question then - is this normal? I always thought that when warm you set it to full advance and basically leave it there, but as stated, at idle anyways, it does not seem to like full advance.....perhaps not warm enough?
Second Q - it does not appear to be charging when revved - i.e. ammeter does not move to right. Ammeter/circuit does work, as when the lights are on it moves to the left. Pretty sure it was charging fine last time. Weak battery perhaps? I have not removed the battery and charged it and I know regulators do like a fully charged battery. 12V, + earth by the by.....
