    Check the pulse coil output you may have lost it. If I remember from school it's an AC CDI ignition system. So check the pulse coils and battery first. Also make sure the coil connections under the backbone are tight.

    Ok, I am going to be digging into this in an hr. I had the tank off so That is my 1st step. Then I have to look at the manual to figure out how to check the pulse coils.

    You'll need a PVA (Peak Voltage Adapter) to get the correct values.

    I have a DVM that will hold peak voltage. When I look for spark I am grounding the plug by holding it against the cooling fins on the head. Is that good enough?

    Took the tank off in 3 minutes and found a connector unplugged! Plugged it together and put the tank on. No spark. Had to go to a parents scout meeting so done for the night. Tomorrow is another day.

    Re: What I have been doing the last few evenings!

    Yes that should suffice for a ground.
    Also if it is in fact ACCDI verify you don't have the kill switch flipped. They develop spark always unless grounded. Kind of spooky cause technically you don't need an key just flip couple wires and it lights off.

    I had the kill switch flipped to off accidentally and thought... oh boy that has to be the problem. Nope, plug... nope. Going to be taking the tank off and see if the plug came unplugged again.

    Re: What I have been doing the last few evenings!

    Other option is to open up the manual and check the starter circuit and make sure all your interlocks are being made. Clutch side stand neutral are a few off the top of my head.

    No chance to work on it last night. I do plan on getting the manual out tonight. Neutral light is lit and side stand is up. Might cycle them a couple of times though.

    Re: What I have been doing the last few evenings!

    Ok! There was a bullet connector up in a black rubber hood that must have gotten pulled apart when I was removing the choke cable. Plugged it in and spark! The choke actually works now too! It starts so easy...Finally! Another shop that rebuilt the carb when I bought it... didn't get it right. I started to adjust the mixture screw and it was only a half turn out. The new headlamp is well worth the $110. I have to take the rear tire and rim off and have another go at balancing it. 1st time I haven't gotten that right on the 1st try. Is there a trick to balancing spoked rims? It took a lot of weight. I did leave the sprocket and cush drive rubbers on though.

    Re: What I have been doing the last few evenings!

    On balancing- should leave sprocket etc on afaik- they're part of the rotating assy. But make sure if you remove them they go back in same place. Could be worth rotating tyre on rim and rebalancing, you may have heavy part of tyre in same spot as heavy part of rim. Shouldn't be any different techniques between spoked and cast but cast by their nature will be closer to good compared to spoked, especially after you've derusted and painted the rim.

    Re: What I have been doing the last few evenings!

    Guy congrats on getting the fire back. Electrical can be the most frustrating of issues. When I use the bubble balancer I have here I'll set the tire on the rim and try and find a fairly neutral weight with the wheel and tire buy shifting it. Typically you place the tire dot at the stem per the factories knowing where the heaviest part of the tire is. Using that method should allow the smallest amount of weights to be needed. Have you checked runout as well as lateral movement as it's a spoked wheel.

    Yeah, I always leave anything that rotates on while I balance.
    I didn't think about the paint for weights and balancing!
    I have the balancer where you let the wheel rotate to the heavy spot and put weights opposite of it until it doesn't rotate when you let go. It didn't move no matter where I started it when done. I have had that tire off twice ... off the bike and off the rim.

    Bees, I looked for a dot but didn't see one. Might be a good idea to balance the rim alone prior to the tire. I am not set up to check run out. Don't have the dial. I have done a lot of work and this bike is so much better than it was in the fall. I am ready to take the rim to a dealer I know that is pretty good just to be done so I can get to my Bird!

    Re: What I have been doing the last few evenings!

    Don't remove tyre, let it down, take weight off, rotate tyre on rim to get best balance then use weight to perfect. Run out can be loosely checked by jury rigging a pointer to rim, just not touching. Blue the rim, rotate if it's out, the pointer will push out. Go to where u set it and measure with feelers, would give rough idea maybe?

    Re: What I have been doing the last few evenings!

    Sometimes it is the simple things that you forget or decide not to do that hit you right between the eyes! Found out that because of my decision to NOT put lube on the rim shoulder (not where the bead is seated but on the horizontal surface) the bead never seated correctly therefore the tire wasn't on evenly. I figured that I didn't need to since this was a tubed tire and the tube would push out the tire to seat it...ah no, it doesn't work that way.
    The fix was to put the tire rim combo on top of the old tire for protection and put it on the floor and compress the tire and wipe lube on. Then fill with air. Pop, pop all seated and done. Tire is on the bike and chain once again adjusted and everything done. Only other thing that need attention is the left side rear blinker isn't working. Good bulb. Put some grease on the neutral side of the bulb and it started working. May have some corrosion in there.

    I went from this many lead weights! I knew something was wrong when I needed that much... To two of these steel weights. Haven't gone down the road yet but I think it will be fine. Charging up the battery now and then will test it.
