From "J.D." (8/10): "I recently found your site
while trying to find a solution to my Triumph ignition problems.
After reading your article on
conversions, I tried it and my problem is gone. Thank you.
The bike now has great throttle response and I feel I am now getting the
power this engine is capable of. The mixture does not seem
excessively rich even though I am at 3000 ft. elevation.
