Valves are on there way back, re-cut and vaccum tested so should be perfect and good to go. I finally got the right rings, both installed and will be getting this all put back together and hope and pray I did everything right. if anyone can answer my question below that would be great. thank you!

The base gasket and head gasket are different shapes. You'll figure it out.

So while im still waiting for my valves :/ I am finishing up the wiring so everything is buttoned up and good to go.

*My blinkers dont seem to work? I have them wired up and nothing*

My headlight, tailight working. Does the 500c (the wiring harness im using) have a blinker fuse? if so it could be that maybe? idk

I think I might have figured it out, I was using a '73 left hand controls which didn't have the yellow/red wire and the 76 wiring harness. The 76 wiring harness has the flasher canceller (yellow/red wire). So I got a new left hand control and will try it with that.

Can anyone confirm that the headlight and tail light should not be on with the key in the second position? I get headlight and taillight at the 3rd position but not the second. Blinkers work in the 2nd position.

Thank you

Im going to assume it is correct because everything is working and when i hooook the red/yellow wire to the black/blue the headlight turns on. So im assuming the engine just needs to be running.

thanks for the help guys :p

Valves are back and look amazing. Putting engine together and should have it buttoned up in next couple days to check and see where were at

So I have my engine together with new pistons, rings (gapped/within specs), valves cut/vaccum tested and perfect. Valve clearances set AND MY COMPRESSION STILL is LOW...65

Carbs are not on the bike yet or anything but that seems really low

Any thoughts on what could be going on here, im beside myself to say the least.

To set valve clearance it's just cam lobe  at smallest point and  point pointing away from the valve correct? What could I have done wrong...?
