Well, I have torn the bike apart looking for this electrical problem. So far I have found nothing
. The connections to the battery were tight and clean. However after removing and re-installing both battery cables she has not had a problem since. I literally took apart, checked and cleaned if necessary every electrical connection. Checked continuity, power and fuses then put things back together using Dielectric. The battery is a super battery and was showing 12.8 volts with 0 load.
I am trying to track down this problem before my 1600-mile trip, the weekend after next.
I figured since I had her all torn apart I would do a few other things. In addition to what I already listed, I did the following.
Checked the valves, right in the middle of spec.
Went up one size on my main jet, added a very very quite muffler
that breaths a lot more air. So the bike was running a lot lean, 62.26 miles per gallon averaged over almost 1350 at 49 miles per hour.
Cleaned and re-oiled the air filter (K & N)
Cleaned the oil filter (K & P)
Lubed the clutch and speedo cable.
Re-locktight things as they went back on the bike.
So far I the bike is running great, I would hold my breath but I don't want to turn purple.
Will be keeping an eye on it, hopefully I will have no more problems.
