General Discussion / Re: Dyna III installed , Convert hard to start
« Last post by centauro on September 20, 2023, 03:13:58 PM »
I'll write this again...

Wire in a relay to handle the power to the coils and Dyna. The kill switch is handling that load now and that is less than optimal IMO. Use the kill switch to activate the relay, let the relay take the load. I have Greg Bender's "relay solution" on my Convert, but it's simple enough to wire in a stand alone ignition circuit relay.

My 20-year stint with my 1984 1000SP included the following:

1.  1 burned out Dyna III module

2. two cracked and electrically failed Dyna coils (1 3-ohm and 1 5-Ohm)

3. 1 ignition switch

4. 1 NGK plug cap

5. 1-melted kill switch and 3-feet of the white wire feeding the coils and Dyna module

I had the same starting troubles as bigbikerrick for 20 years, scratching my head and frustrating me to death, before I realized that the Dyna system needs to be powered by a fuse-protected relay independent from the starting circuit. Also, a good ground lug for the Dyna is one of the M6 transmission cover allen bolt at the rear of the gearbox.
I totally agree with Charlie, and strongly recommend his advice.

Wait until you lean it over in a turn. Magic!

john croucher -

are you running stock front forks on that racer? I did a similar conversion but had a 17inch front hoop made, geometry is awesome but the stock marzocci suspension just feels a bit soft

I have a question regarding the advance springs. One of the springs has circular "loops" at each end that tightly encircles the mounting posts. On the other spring, one end has a closed circular loop, but the other end has an oval, elongated mounting "loop" that does not contact the mounting post until the advance mechanism is turned to the full advance position, so that spring is basically doing nothing, until the advance plate reaches almost full advance. Its more of an advance limiter. Is that the way its supposed to be?
thanks

 I didnt know the Dyna "box" drew alot of power. Knowing that now, I will deffinitely wire it up through a relay to feed the ignition box. Thanks Charlie. I will also change the ground from the battery negative post to a bolt on the engine. Hopefully with these changes,and setting the timing to the static marks will do the trick.
I will report back,
thank you all

The new bearing from NAPA were from two mfg. SKF AND FAG.  Same physical dimensions on i.d, o.d. and width.  Taper was different.  Shimmed up good.

I have not studied a MG gearbox, and i'm sure your new bearing will fit and work. however I would take a few dimensions to know the potential effect of the differing taper angle. the point where the angle intersects the axis of rotation (of both bearings) is the moment arm that hold the shaft. If the new taper increases this distance, your box is most likely stronger the the original, however the inverse is also a potential.

Just a ? here, but the v85 uses 700cc so I would think the v7-850 would too.

I installed an ad blocker on my browser a while back and Iíve been enjoying WG ad free ever since.
Thanks. I forgot I turned  mine off to be able to post a review.  Your post reminded me to turn it back on.

I changed fluid on gearbox (and trans).  Now I catch neutral 9 of 10 times on first try.
On my V7II, the gearbox fluid was reduced from 500 cc to 450 cc to keep it from blowing out
500 cc is fine on the V7-850.
No issues on yesterday's 382 mile run to Taos via mountain roads and back.

What is that crud piled up on the roller?
Hope it's not moly additive.
