Yet ANOTHER electrical gremlin
Ok so I changed the pickup coils on friday, rode the bike approx 100 miles since then. And when i get to work today it died as i was pulling up. refused to recrank, (starter wouldn't turn over). I did the pickup coil mod while i was in there .018 gap. so i let the bike sit for about 2 hours and it wanted to turn over, OK weird. another two hours go by and i get ready to leave work she cranks slowly and refuses to catch but does have some firing cylinder action. I pulled out my little jump box i got for xmas and she fires up get it idling disconnect the box and let it warm up while i gear up after a minute or two it dies. So i roll start it and limp it home battery voltage was 11.6 when i got home and it didn't want to run under 3k rpms.
Also have noticed some headlight / guage light flickering at night for a week or two ever since i jumped a buddy's bike off with mine.
Got the battery on the charger now guess I'll let it get full and go for a quick ride and see if the voltage drops again. if so i guess it's time to test the stator and R/R. F#$*
Must be the karma gods getting back at me for riding while y'all northerners are stuck in the cold.
