Re: High Tension Terminal

In my case the reason the non-terminal ends were failing was the central carbon fibre conductor. It's like a very thin ribbon. Repeated insertion spread out the fibres leading to poor contact with the coil terminal. This is why I want to go to copper core! I hate that stuff. Always have. :gahhh: Th...

Re: problems out of nowhere?

I'd pull the carbs for examination and cleaning. Voice if experience here, as it concerns similar running issues on a motorcycle that ran poorly after a period of storage. I would drain the carbs if it was going to sit for several months. http://livinginthepast-audioweb.co.uk/imagex/misc/hand-point...

Re: Garmin vs. Google Maps (those using Garmin)

For me, when I have Avoid Highways turned on, it treats anything that might be a highway like it has the plague, routing me through 90 turns to travel 5 miles before it will just say "OK, take Highway 16 and be done with it".

Re: 2019 MIL (check engine light) stays on

Sorry don't understand the last bit. Generator output is permanently connected to battery so is always live? Or are you talking about a fuse or link in the battery negative lead? (Which I don't have, and I'm not sure that any EFI bikes do.) But yes pulling fuse #1 should do it. I disconnected mine o...
