    Default Well...

    Previously, I ran the bike the other day and it was going well, for the most part, gave the bike the beans and went to about 9k and after that it started crapping on me
    checked timing to make sure it didnt go out of place and it was a tad bit off so i got it correct but my battery died out, brought battery to get charged and they said it wouodnt take a charge, 3 days old....

    Returned battery which was made in 2017 for a new one and this was made in 2021, hooked it up, checked timing to make sure it's all well and it was. So I went to start the bike, started up the instant i pressed the starter and at first was on all 4 cylinders forsure, then dropped down to 2 or 3 a second after it was started, has a lope in the idle at that point, and that stupid short was back, skip, skip, skip.

    I did get to do a bit of the charging test being, bike off, lights on, and idle which had all good readings, right at the top of the specs for the test, but didnt go any further.

    So far, for the bike, this has been done very recently, carb rebuild which went great, float bowls weighed and reset, new Rick's stator, new sh775 RR, new dyna coilpacks, and new dyna S ignition.

    All of these pieces correspond properly, is there anything that could be checked.

    One thing I'll add is when i first did my timing with the new coils, if I didnt have a spark plug in the coil plug, I would have spark zapping from the negative connection on my left side coil, if a plug was in there, it wouldnt.

    I have no clue what to check, only other thing that is messed up is my turn signal flasher and I have a spare I believe but I didnt think that would cause these issues.

    I'll get a video of bike running tomorrow I'll make sure to get its initial startup and catch the skip on video.

    That bit is the starter solenoid (relay). If your bike starts OK when you bless the start button, leave it alone.

    Does that require a priest or can a layman do that on his own? Not sure that sprinkling anything electrical with holy water is a good idea!

    Haha. This bike may just need an exorcism.

    Hopefully this critter can be coaxed to behaving, before Covid 21 appears.

    pull the turn signal fuse and see if ignition performs correctly.
