Something amiss in the ole' ingnition
Had my first problems with the bike today. She sputterd for a brief second at around 55mps but then came back to life. As I was pulling her into the garage, she flat died. I restarted with no problem and pulled her in. As I cranked the bars hard right, she died again. Humm!! I set the bike up on the center stand, started her up and cranked hard left, no problem. Cranked hard right slowly, and just before she was full right, poof....died.
I checked the wires under the cluster to ensure they were not streatched to the limit and it looked fine. Started again, cranked right and poof.
Here is the weird part......I turned the key itself a tad counter clockwise but still in the run position, started, hard right again and she purred like a kitten. Turned the key a tad clockwise, hard right again....poof, died.
When I bought the bike last month, the previous owner only had one key, and it was slightly bent (I had new keys made now). I noticed a little slop in the key in the run position, and thought perhaps it was normal (first vn for me).
I've read the versus on the ignition and it looks simple enough (probably just jinxed me). A couple of questions:
1) Are ignitions still available for this bike and how much roughly am I looking at?
2) Could this problem potentially be the issue of the sputter and intermittant cyl miss that I get at higher RPM's (it comes and goes)???
Thanks and respects to all....
