The decomp starts to close at 360 camshaft rpm, which is 720 crankSHAFT rpm. That is good, because it is well below idle, but well above the likely starter motor crankING speed.
All good mate, actually it makes perfect sense now that I read it back. Indeed I was missing something at the time so I interpreted it wrong. It certainly sounded like you knew what you were doing with it, hence the treading carefully.

Best of luck with it

Thanks to plumbob on here for providing a good seat and rear guard at a sensible price.

Found my first real problem today, lots of slop in one of the cam follower rollers. That would have been very noisy I suspect.

Credit card waved in the general direction of Taffy!

Replacing the rollers is straight forward, you can see how this one was worn...
The other one has almost no discernible play, so I left it for now. Cam cover is back on, just the chain tensioner and tappets to do one evening this week - if it warms up a little... - then it is clutch cover on and time to drop the engine into the newly painted frame.

Well,it's been a while but the 200quidaberg (as it is now known) is finally up and running. Actually it's been running for months, charging was the problem! I kept throwing it to the back of the shed and riding something else but eventually replaced stator, regulator and start relay...and it still didn't charge. Eventually I ripped all the manky wiring apart and redid large parts, all good now.
I really should have known by know that when old bike electrics play up it is always an earth fault (same as when I crash, it's always gravity's fault...)
Little spin on the local trails yesterday -lovely. Light, feisty, stable and the little magic button actually works every time.

Things I have learned:
-There is some beautiful engineering and concepts in that motor, not least the balancer arrangement. The steel clutch basket is a work of art - high quality, light, virtually unbreakable
-Its a maintenance access nightmare. Battery and electrics live in the wettest/muddiest possible place (I relocated mine under the seat)...need tank off to top up the rear brake reservoir...carb access is 'orrible...low quality wiring and connectors, routed by apes. I think the great Swedish engineers designed the big bits, then went off to the sauna leaving some blokes ex Fiat and British Leyland to finish the details.
-the decompressor spring/ mechanism is the spawn of Satan
- the kickstart mechanism is the b@stard son of the decompressor mechanism
- cheap multimeters aren't worth a toss
Thanks from plumbbob and tourist
