Took the BRP out for a ride yesterday- put a good hard 80 miles on her. Had some concerns over my valve adust I did last week. Also replaced the 68s pilot for a 70 to help with the dreaded off idle hesitatiion. The bike is now a one kick wonder, power is up but... still some excessive valve ticking(to me anyway) and now when I start a warm bike I kick through until I'm at TDC- pull in a little compression release, move the piston past TDC and whack- one kick and were off- usually. I kicked(slowly) the bike about ten times looking for the teltale resistance of TDC and never found it. Out of curiousity, tried to start the bike and it fired right up!!?? I looked at the compression release cable and it was slack. What is going on? Again, the bike makes good power. Also, as a side the bike is un-corked, am running a full FMF Q with PowerBomb header, 175/70/b53e needle in the 4th position- temp was 40 degrees at an average elevation of 1500'. In some tight areas the bike started to boil. It has never done that in any conditions before.
