Here's the Odyssey Battery Manual. Everything anyone would ever want to know about Odyssey battery charging and storage, etc.
Way more info than the little paper included with the battery.

Re: Start up & Warming Behavior

Too lean would explain both the overheating and revving up without throttle opening. You could also have a sticky advance mechanism.

If you do decide to re-torque the heads, start by loosening each nut a half turn or so then tightening to whatever spec you follow.

If the points are opening, bypass the booster and see if you get spark.

ZM, which new HD motor has solid lifters? Even the motors with hydraulic lifters had adjustable length push rods.

Re: Removing Spark Plug Wires

Try twisting they counterclockwise. Some coils have a center threaded post that the HT cable "screws" down onto.

Re: R100S occasional sputter and idle issues. Coil?

Coils and plug caps usually show themselves under load not so much at idle. I vote for idle mixture being on the edge of being too lean and perhaps not quite the right balance between mixture and throttle plate opening at closed throttle.
