1. Since ur plugs r getting fouled up, it seems more of an electrical issue than a fuel issue. There's no combustion hence y ur plugs keep getting fouled up so that indicates fuel is getting to th chambers at least.
2. Since ur charging system isn't hooked up, ur regulator isn't getting power either which may cause it to miss fire. I kno cuz it happened to one of mine. I ran th bike without a rectifier and noticed a significance in backfire. Once i replaced it it went away.
3. From what I understand, if th fpr went bad then th bike would constantly b flooding.
1. That's pretty much the conclusion I've come to. My orgininal though was that the injectors could be partially clogged, allowing too low a flow for on power, or stuck slightly open causing rich (although that doesn't make sense on hard acceleration). But swapping the injectors and getting the same result pretty much nullified that.
2. Thanks bladeracer, that's what I needed to know! Obviously I'm going to have to hook up the charging system eventually, but it's nice to know that's not the problem right now. It didn't come with a reg/rect (assuming it was broken), so I need to test the stator and get one of those.
3. I wish it was that, it would make my life easy lol. But it's only connected to 1 and 4...
I have all day tommorow to piss around with it, here's what I'm thinking right now:
Since 2 and 3 are on the same degree on the crank, it must be something that's connecting them together, electrical or mechanical. 2 things that connect them mechanically, there's the exhaust (htev specifically) that if it was in the wrong position would block flow. Checked and it's not. There's a vacuum line between the 2 and 3 throttle bodies, and of course, spark.
Starting with the obvious (but more to the point, easy
), airleak. I haven't checked beyond visually, but because it's simple, and I'm lazy, I'm going to start there first. It appears that the low temp high idle unit opens up an air passage to the throttle bodies. Will make sure that isn't stuck as well. Although thinking about it these would cause lean condition, and the plug looks more on the rich side of things.
Aaaand we're back to electrical. That sucks. SO, what I was thinking today, was possibly the ignition pulse generator. I don't know how it works, because I haven't looked at it yet, but my thinking is it may have a pickup that determines TDC for 1&4 and one for 2&3 and the cam sensor determines whether it's 1 or 4, or 2 or 3. Anyone know if I'm somewhere on the right track?
Also, is the timing adjustable?
