No go Freeride update

Ok, the last few days have been pretty exhaustive investigation. No result yet.

I have spark.
I have fuel.
I have good compression.
Stator meters out fine.
Coil is good.
Ignition timing pulse pickup is good.
CDI is good.

Crank case had filled with petrol. I've dealt with that and I think emptied it. At least I have no more fuel weeps from the exhaust.

Rotor has been pulled and checked that it didn't spin on the crankshaft.

Bike will occasionally fire and try to run for a couple of seconds. Then die like it maybe flooding?

The original problem was a sudden complete loss of go. No coughing, spluttering or missing. Just wide open in 4th one minute, nekminit - booorrrrrr, stopped in a few meters.

What's next?

Needle and seat shutting off ?

Spark strong enough ? Should be able to jump a gap of several mm.

Spark isn't that strong imho. When done with plug cap off just using core wire to head it'll jump only about 2mm.

Am tending away from a fuel problem. Needle and seat is fine. Fuel does not overflow out of carby hoses.

I'll pull the carby off again tomorrow but all was good when I did it as first thing in trying to solve this problem.

Nup. It's all spark related.

Turned out to be the stator or the ignition pickup. Swapped both out (as they are in the same loom) with Bob and it's all good with his in mine.

Just need a rewind I hope.

A new one is $386. Is the $175 including postage both ways? If not, I guess add maybe $50-$70.

Anyone in Brisbane do them? I Had my Guzzi one done years ago in Woolloongabba I think.

Pretty sure I paid freight on top, wasn't much though.
Give them a call.

He reckons mine would be $280 plus freight which is $15 from his end. He quoted $170 at first but then said it would be $280 after I explained what I had done to diagnose the problem. (So $295 plus freight my end = equals $320 plus...)

Anyway, just bought a new one from Boltons - $386.
