The more I dig the more I find. My safety switch is bad, stuck in open, so that shouldn't be it. I have one spark plug that is only firing part of the time (checked all four wires with an inductive type timing light, three are constant strobe one visibly flickers). I'm going to change that coil and see if things get better. My ignition switch is acting up also, jiggle it and all lights go out or bike dies and lights stay on. Like I said originaly, bike was a fixer upper, and I'm having fun working on her.
