not sure we had it on the old forum and after a while getting submissions were like pulling teeth after a year or so.

I grew up riding in CA.

That's just how you do it.  Front of the line at lights, never sit in traffic on the freeway.

Been really missing it the past 20 years here in OR.

It's worth it for the cool story you'll always have with that motor!! I've had to pull topends off and cut the tangs to quiet noisy motors guys didn't cut the tangs on.. you won't notice as much on: a tight bore, nice chamfers on the intakes or intakes not enlarged at all but it's noisier. once just to see i looked at the wear on the tangs and just removed that much which was about half and then rounded the edges and chamfered the intake worked ok but why not just remove it? The engine actually wants as much piston out of the way of the intake air path as soon as possible.. i'd love to see someone make (single ring for racing 2 ring for street) pistons with cut outs instead of windows for the RD350 & 400's...
Turning Wrenches / Re: HPI ignition install with trail tech regulator

try disconnecting the ac lead to the VR (regulator). Just leave it hanging.  if when that circuit is open and you get spark, that could very well be it.  you don't need the VR to get spark, BUT, if there's a short in the windings from the lighting coil to the ign coil, this might explain it.  what is the kill wire to the cdi box connected to? anything? if so, disconnect it. .02
I will try this.  Kill wire is just hanging without a connection to anything.  Ill try to capture some pics of what is wired where tomorrow and what I am disconnecting to assure I am understanding you correctly Mark. 

I had a flukey thing happen when I installed a HPI. I had the coil mounted right next to the CDI box and it wouldn't spark due to the coil causing an interference. Are yours close to each other?
My coil is in the stock location and the CDI box and regulator are under the battery in the stock location.

Had a very nice phone conversation with Mr. Ritter about sending him my RD cylinders, picked up two knobbies for the dirt bike fleet and received some new tire mounting tools in a the mail.
