been painting the tank and seat today...  one of the tips I picked up many years ago is that when spraying small items, use a torch in your other hand and shine it from below...  you can see where you are wetting out the paint...  I love the way 2K lacquer glosses from the gun these days!

started work on the seat base. I have cut it to shape and added the Rivinuts to hold it on. I have used aluminum ones as these are much easier to  pull in with a nut and bolt if you don’t have the special tool to draw them in…

Also a picture of how its looking...  I know this build will finish well before Spring next years so I have bought another project to see me through the dark months of winter... watch this space!  you guys will be pleased  laughingdp

I'm thinking...torch...explosion hazard...then quickly realized he was talking about a flashlight.

Painting is a very visual specific task, much like welding.

Vision is critical.

Thank You!  waytogo waytogo

Still in the middle of a build of a multistrada special when a bike i have always wanted came up at a bargain price… an early Ducati Monster. With the prospect of limited going out and no holidays due to Corvid, and the fact the current build will be finished before winter, I decided to buy it! here it is… It's a bit tatty, but it runs well and sounds sweet.  Ripe for restoration   its going to the back of the garage for a while…  this will be a straight restoration though, probably red as I like red monsters!

On the last couple of builds where I have converted from EFI to carbs I have used an Ignitech ignition unit that utilised the original induction sensor. While the bikes ran OK, I had to make adjustments in the software to compensate for the fact that the values in the software differed from what was actually happening on the bike, plus the tick over was not as steady as I would have liked… This irritated me, and Ignitech themselves refused to answer emails for advice… so I investigated a hall effect setup.

I read about it on the fastbikegear website (Liam has been VERY helpful) and decided to give it a go… The sensors are tiny, and sense two small magnets in the cam wheel through a couple of 3mm holes in the alloy plate.  South Pole switches it on, north off, so it’s important to get them the right way round, hence the magnet and phone!  Here is how I made it, took a while!   The values in the software now match the actual advance when checked with a strobe, and the tick over is rock solid! I have shown it here on the 996 engine as that bike is on the road…

I've found on the Ignitechs that if the advance setting at idle rpm is different from the base advance, the unit is *calculating* the timing.

The variation in crank speed at idle makes the *actual* timing wander around, and it then idles crap.
Might be OK if the setting is retarded from base, as then the Ignitech is only waiting a short time after it gets the idle lump signal.
If it's advanced from base, it's interpolating between the full advance lump and the idle lump.
Leaving enough time for the crank speed variation to fuxxor the actual timing.

This^^^. It's quite annoying and can send one chasing other phantom issues. The weak signal at low rpm from the oem pick ups doesn't help at all.
