Parmakit is ALIVE!!!

The longest part of the assembly today was finding my new chain that was buried in a filing cabinet.  I forgot where I put it.   
I wired the headlight to get the maximum power from the HPI.
Here is the mentality.  You can run the LED with AC, but when the polarity goes negative then the diode will just keep the light from lighting up... causing a flicker.  Or.... I could run a wave rectifier and that will flip the polarity when it would be negative.  Then if you run a capacitor parallel to the light then it should level out the dips and keep the light steadier and brighter.  Right?  That's what the math says...

Anyway... fired up the bike and it ran for about 15 seconds then died.  I think the timing slipped... or the jetting isn't perfect... or... there are a lot of variables to check, but to hear the thing scream... WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! 

Weather should be great for Memorial Day! Warm temps, a little humid... and sunny!  Clouds roll in late Monday with rain for Tuesday.  Few lingering showers thru the middle of the week and the Memorial Tournament looks to be pretty dry and warm!  Clay Hall loved hearing that.  Have a good one!
