So, I'm just not sure where to go from here. I've checked my coil, and it's within spec, and my ckp sensor as well. I am hoping to be able to check more once the diagnostic manual gets here. I hate the thought that my sensor, and my coil test out o.k., but either, or both could still be bad. I hate this small town I live in. The only motorcycle dealer is in the next town, and THEY don't have a way to test the coil dynamically. Thanks for suggesting some other things. I'll have to get ahold of that manual, and dig in from there.
I hate to sound redundant, but here it goes....before it quit running...it would run pretty good, but miss here and there. Then it would run on one cylinder. Ran like that for a little while, not on the road, but when I started it up. Even took the front plug wire off, and put it on the back cylinder...that would make the back fire. At that point I decided it was the plug wires. After changing the plug wires, ran good for a trip around the block. Next day, firing on one cylinder again. Later that day, started one more time, and then just quit. Wouldn't run anymore after that. I hate to keep stating the obvious, but whatever it is, kind of went gradually downhill, and then just quit alltogether. Can any of these symptoms be used to isolate the problem?
