Motorcycle: 92 750 back from the grave
lost 1 Cyl in the rain
Full speed on the highway in the rain and the engine cuts out like I'm on reserve. Fill up with gas and it's not any better. Ride one exit and determine that #3 cyl is not firing because the pipe is cold. Pull and jiggle wires. Check the float bowl and it has gas. Then the bike won't start at all and I'm running down the battery. Call for a pickup and stare at it for 15min. Try it and it starts up, runs ok in neutral, drive it down the street and it feels like only 3 cyl. This time it's #4 not #3 (not even the same coil) No ammount of wire wiggling has any effect. Bike is still all wet.
Bike sits in the back of the van all night and as expected, starts right up this morning and runs fine under load.
Coils? Do I need to do a comprehensive contact cleaning and/or waterproofing or is it finally time to replace the stock coils (and thereby plug wires and caps)
if so, what coils do I look for?
92 Oil cooled 750, stock mill, penske shock w/drag links, 99 forks and front wheel, 6 piston Tokico, D and D header and "Public Enemy #1" can, 2001-2003 600 and 1000 Frankenstein Bodywork
So this hot Hindu chick walks in and I'm like "Holy Cow!!"
