Strange problem. Electrical?
I posted awhile back about my charging system problems. I have since fixed those issues but im having a few minor ones elsewhere.
Started her up this morning, was putting on some new Pazzio levers and gel grips. Wanted to run thru the checklist and see if there were any faults I was missing. So ive found two or three things.
1) The guy who had it before me had it on the track. It has an old Power Commander II on it. It is set to the leanest setting. That will cause trouble will it not? It tends to idle high, about 1500 +- 100, and will stutter.
2) When I completely close the throttle, ie. twist it until it wont go any further. It dies on idle. It will immediately drop to about 800-900 rpm and then shut off. Is that an adjustment on the throttle cable I need to make?
3) The strangest of the bunch. I turned it over and everything was fine. I decided to shut it off and change something..turn it back on and the starter button wont fire the engine. I was stumped for a min so I started messing with the turn signals and running the last electrical stuff down. I honked the horn and then hit the starter again and it fired instantly. I tested it two more times with the same thing happening. What could be the cause of it? Im assuming like a crossed wire or a short? It doesnt happen 100% of the time.
Im curious of your thoughts, comments, suggestions on this. Let me know. Thanks.
