Hello again. I havent had much time to mess with the bike until this past weekend. I swapped the plugs and the coils, back to front, with no luck.
I did notice something i had not noticed before.
When the engine is running, only the front cylinder gets warm, the back one stays cold to the touch. Also, I noticed that the backfiring and flames only come out of the back cylinders exhaust pipe.
If I unplug the back cylinders spark plug wire, the motor runs much better, no more backfiring, although its only running on 1 cylinder.
If i unplug the front plug wire (with the back plug wire plugged in), the motor will not start. This happens with the coils and plugs swapped.
I checked and double checked the cams timing, all marks line up.
Is there something between the stator and the ignition coils that controls the spark timing? could my stator be defective? if so wouldn't it affect both cylinders? i'm at a loss...about to give up and take it to the dealer...any suggestion would be much appreciated.
