"80 GL1100 - engine quits when warmed up

Postby maritimeboy » Sun Sep 18, 2016 11:57 am



Got my starter on, finally. starts up fine but requires full choke to keep running. Runs at about 3000 rpm for a few minutes and quits. Of course, as it warms up, that doesn't help any longer either. It just quits and all the attempts to restart render the battery to low to continue.
Any thoughts?

Cheers

Perhaps the fuel pump. Almost sounds like the engine is initially running on fuel in the bowls then quits after that is used up. ???

Looks like I finally found the culprit....or culprits. Both ignition coils are cracked, one of the the full length.
