All through I have tried starting the T on "BAT" but is it ok if I start it on "MAG"...I tried starting 2-3 times after completely retarding the spark level but somehow it does not. Am I missing anything?
To start on mag the spark needs to be set at 4-6 notches
Sid, As Jeff said you need to advance the ignition timing a few notches. But first of all you magneto must be in good condition and the coils set right.
Sid: how are your coils? After replacing the caps and a friend setting them up on his HCCT my '23 Touring started, stone cold, on mag for the first time. Hand cranked.
