more sadness - HELP - August 31, 2009, 06:55 PM

Today I received my replacement starter and I was excited, I knew what I needed to do! Checked it out, all is working and in good condition. I get under the bike and install the part, easy as could be. Hook up the solenoid and battery, cross my fingers and click the starter. VRRRRRRVRRRRVRRRRRRRR !!!! YAY, good starter and it works!

Something is amiss, it does not stay running very long, and the tach is not functioning? I let the bike warm up, check all the normal stuff, and it just does not sound right. Figure I will just run it around the block, see if the old dog is just starved or something, this trip is bad, bike hesitates horribly off the line, stalls under clutch, but heck, it starts back up without a problem. I limp it back to the house, and shut her down. It's been sitting outside and covered for about 2 weeks, and we have had some good rain, I figure there is water in the carbs again, so I guess its another round of dissassembly and carb cleaning? Thoughts?

Here is a vid, don't mind the horrible camera work, or actor? I am not a mechanic, I just play one on TV. (pardon the foul words, anger)

Thanks in advance!

I think you answered your own question. Clean carbs and adjust. As for the tach check for a loose or disconnected wire to the crank sensor/

Now for the real technicians replies

Nice video I would drain the carbs and see if maybe some water settled in the bottom of the float bowls. If that doesn't do it then maybe the broken tach and poor running are tied together. I think the tach on that bike works off one of the coil packs, so you may have some connections that need some cleaning. If you pm me the bike info I will double check when I get to work.

New bike is coming in the winter/spring... maybe, I poor

Checking into the electrical gremlins today, going to test the coils, spark boxes, etc, as the tach is tied to the 1st cylinder. Hopefully I get out of work early enough.

Thanks,
