rotate the coil so your getting accurate tach recall rpms-isolate the ignition wires from main wiring harness,rotate the coil-i used to get 9500-10000 rpms on tach recall-scott

I guess what I should have said was;Flipping the coil turned out to be a pain in the butt,I didn't want to take apart the sparkplug boot,so i used the black split loom and wrapped the high tension leads from the boots to the coil.I also seperated the mess of wires that entangle the coil and the leads.My recall was telling me that I was hitting 10,200 rpm before the fix.I also bolted the coil down with nyloks.

Have an F5 only getting about 80-85mph. Checked the
primary after marking it. Shows about 1 1/2 inches of line
left to the top.
Any suggestions for clutching.
Dealer told me it needs more break-in (has 230miles).

Snoace,sounds like you need to check your powervalve cables,where they attach to the servo motor.I've heard others say the same thing"my F5 is only getting 80-85mph",then they realized that one or both cables were off.poor design?
