Ignition timing (possible) issue?
New member here trying to get the cruiser sorted out before the Spring...

I bought this 2005 V-Star 1100 Classic a couple of years back. Long story short, the valves got stuck open and therefore bent, and I rebuilt the top end. The bike wouldn't idle right after the rebuild, and after I chasing an air leak for days, I did away with the double carb setup in favor of a KJS kit. Idle problem solved. On to the next problem...

The idle sounds almost right, but it is not as smooth as I think it should be. On the road things are not much better. Having owned a Harley that with with an ignition module that was completely off, the way this one runs is definitely reminiscing of it.

Has anyone had an ignition module go bad before? Does anyone know of a shop in the San Francisco/Bay Area that is familiar V-Star tunning?

Thanks in advance!
