Not a bad coil, but a ckp sensor, still have problems!!!
I went from thinking it was bad plug wires, to a bad coil, but all tested good. As finances allowed, I decided to take your advice and replace the ckp sensor. It ohm'd out o.k., but you could see the metallic magnet. When I got the new one, and it was coated in plastic, I was hopeful that I found the problem. It was all going so well, but.........
Thanks to those who steered me tword the ckp sensor, I changed it out, and now the bike will at least run on both cylinders. After starting it up, it idled a little rough, and would die once in a while. It would only stay running with the choke pulled, and I mean just barely stay running. It has been several weeks since the bike had run, so I adjusted the idle up just a tad. This seemed to do the trick. I decided to tempt fate, and head out around the block. I didn't make it half way down the street when I knew something was wrong.
It cuts out pretty bad. Every time I increase the throttle, it starts to cut out. If you hold the idle steady, not so bad, but as soon as you try to accelerate, it cuts out bad. Any ideas?
