So finally after several months and a couple thousand dollars waster on what is now my spare parts bin (the advantage of which is now i have 3 of all the near impossible to find sensors and parts squirreled away for just in case i need them). My 1985 Limited wing is back in action. One little disc with nubs on it under the front covers had one of the nubs broken off and the bike wouldnt start. Well replaced that and now she runs. I thank you to all who have put up with my overly depressive angry ramblings and helped me get back on the road. The shear understanding of you guys on here is amazing. And thanks to that tomarra morning i will be riding it to 6 flags with my brother here in dallas. Thank you all again for puttin up with me and still helping through all my frustrations. I will post pics if you want me to as well. Couldnt have done it without you guys thank you soo much you will never know how much being able to ride again really means to me.

Glad you got it sorted. We all get these problems and the longer you spend trying to get to the bottom of them, the more frustrated and depressed you get. A fresh pair of eyes and an unclouded brain works wonders. Enjoy the ride with your brother and ride safe.
