Re: Multi meter help please

Thanks Erdeniz, well.... I guess I was doing the measurement off of the wrong side. I was doing the female side. This clearly shows I should be doing the other side. go figure..... Thanks again for showing me this pix. Cheers

Re: Multi meter help please

No I haven't quite figured I tout yet. Looking at the picture of the manual and shown above, it shows a pigtail. Don't know exactly why this has to be this way and why can't one simply got the separated connectors to read resistance. Need to pull out the wire as shown? On another note, maybe I was r...

Hello Fellow Goldwingers. Well I am at trying to figure out how to read resistance on the pulse generators. Pulled the plug above the cooling fan. It's s four prong plug. I have to read resistance across the terminals and I must be doing something wrong. I get Zilch. Tried both sides of the plug and...

Re: Replacing pulse generators

Yes, the weird thing about it was I would get a strong spark when this happened before. Even then 6 plug wires at the same time?

Re: Replacing pulse generators

Thanks Erdeniz, I didn't realize that a vacuum input goes to the ECu for timing. Is it a sensor? But I guess would this happen at start up? It only happens then. It ignites in the exhaust and seems to do it in the carburetor too? As if it is like choking. This problem has been rampant for some time ...

Re: Replacing pulse generators

Well. My bike sporadically misfires. Then it runs good. Backfires and like a detonation in the carbs seem to point to a ignition source that isn't timed right. So thinking it may be the generators. The only thing that does the timing. Since the problem is sporadic , I got to start somewhere cheers

Re: Short passenger

Yes, my wife too is vertically challenged at 4'-9 1/2". back in 93 when we bought a new Aspy , there was the footrest extensions that we procured that are still adjustable. She now has her own Godlwing Trike and we had to do wonders for the seat.

CB doesn't have the "RX" come off

Gents, hopefully you could help me. My wife's 2013 trike has a CB. On the way back from Daytona it stopped working. If the CB is on the radio mutes. Anybody have this same problem? Mighty obliged.

Re: Toy haulers.

Thanks main Viking. When you say bikes, what kind to plop in there ? With a 12 foot partition? How wide is the inside? There are so many kinds of 5th wheels out there, that I am getting lost. Looked at Dutchman, Jayco, forest river, shhhhsh... getting a headache. Like your Dutchman ? Mighty obliged.

Greetings Gents. While the wife and I are contemplating our next life's adventure, we were thinking of getting a fifth wheel toy Hauler. Anybody got experience in this? Want to haul a roadsmith trike and a regular goldwing. So far looked at a puma. Any thoughts? Mighty obliged.

Re: Pulse generators

Hey Virgilmobile. I don't think it is off with one tooth. Runs like a champ like it always has. Is there adjustment to the pulse generators? I thought it was simply a direct bolt up without slots. Maybe...... Maybe the dirt. Maybe that too. Give it a try this weekend. Cheers

Mighty obliged.

Re: Pulse generators

Thanks Virgilmobile. Yes, I remember the pulse generators when I did the belts some time ago. Yes, I get the voltage above the mark and above the 11volts when I checked it the last time. Is it possible that if these are in the failing mode, that they maybe creating a "rogue" spark? Igniting when the...

Pulse generators

Gents, perhaps a layman understanding on these pulse generators. I have a 93 aspy that overnight is difficult to start. It backfires and now I hear a popping out of the carburetor during cranking. After cranking and cranking and cranking.... it starts.......after it starts I can continually start it...

Greetings again, Gotta love the diagnosis. Anyhow, bike was running sweet for a couple of weeks. Then once again, overnight, didn't start. Son of a gun....... So I figured I just get a new relay #6 instead of checking on the ECu since it is more labor intensive to get shelter off yada, yada, yada. C...

What does a "relay" do?

Greetings Gents,

Trying to learn the electrical schematics of a 93 Aspy. Notations, connectors, etc. Seems like the manual does a pretty good job. What specifically does a relay do? Does it do anything but act as a conductor between a source and a ground? Mighty obliged....
