My fix for front cylinder dying off
Hi everyone I want to start off by saying thank you to everyone that posts helpful advice on here. I have read probably every thread on here looking for advice. Now hopefully this will help someone with their troubles.
I have a 85 700 and when I ride about ten minutes or so my front cylinder starts dying off when I come to a stop. The bike will eventually die and I can restart easily but it runs really rough and continues to die.if I gas it really hard it will catch up with the rear cylinder till I let off the gas then dies. I thought it was a fuel issue so I went through everything fuel related numerous times, I was about to set the bike on fire.
I started checking the plugs, wires and coils. Spark plugs good, coils have good battery voltage, plug wires have continuity but the rubber on the screw on end was stretched past the wires. I trimmed the rubber back and reinstalled plug wire. Took a very long test ride and no issues at all.
Maybe I won't set it on fire now, well not on purpose anyway.
Sorry it was such a long post, just got carried away
