Update spark issues

Postby valour1 » Sat Sep 01, 2012 5:52 pm



Just wanted to update what I found after I had problem with bike shutting after 20 mins into ride and then start after 10 mins. Ended up hard wiring all charging system thought was fixed no problems for 2 days then bike just shut down had to trailer home would not start, had no spark and fuel pump not working instead of using ohm meter got light tester out hooked up to fuel pump thought after reading post on pulse generators would start there after testing and tracing wires. Sometimes fuel pump shut down and bike stall when was wiggling wires. Ended up that when I replaced main wire harness did not properly connect b/w wire on left hand coil wire to spade connector. Can't believe that it took 6500k for this problem to start

Thanks to all that helped (VG)
