Looks like you got 'er goin in the right direction. My stator is shorted to ground so it looks like I'll have to pull mine also. How difficult is yank'n that badboy? I'm very mechanical but I've never pulled a street bike engine and this engine looks tighter than a....well, it looks tight. I just want an idea so I'll be able to plan this job a little better. I'll probably take care of some other stuff as long as it's out.

No way this could happen in the Winter when I can't ride it anyway....NooOOo!

Well I guess it won't be ending anytime soon..........I've gotten 3 Pops (Nice Blue flames through the Ears) But can't get it to start. I don't think the plugs are firing all the time.
So I have a MF battery on it's way to see if that makes a differance. I also run across another set of Coils and another R/R.

I knew it wasn't going to be as easy as just Rebuilding the Engine.

Snort. I think we're coming at this from opposite ends. After tacking the eletrical issues, my project bike is running, but it looks like I may have coolant in the oil (it looked snotty on the first drain) and oil coming out of the right side bottom of the engine weep hole.

PS - to get mine to turn over for the first few times, I tried the ignition coil "hotwire" by running another line from the coils to the battery. Be careful with this as your kill switch and your key will both will NOT WORK once the bike fires up - you have to yank the hotwires to kill the bike.

I'm going to add the relay next, but wanted to see if she'd turn over first. I'm using a wet battery - charges to 12.4 and I get about 20 starting attempts with her before she drops down to 11 and I have to recharge her. (Figured I'd be turning the bike on and off constantly as I was tweaking and fiddling. May as well abuse a cheap battery instead of a more expensive glass mat.)

you prolly thought this already but your valve timing could be a lil off. I'm sure you'll get it going.

No I think it's not a constant spark. So it builds up in the Cylinder and pops
when it happens to fire.

Will see what happens when the new MF Battery shows up.
