    electrical issue

    Aaron and Jeremy: Remember the other night after we pulled off the bay so Aaron could piss and my electrical system seemed to fail? Well, even though the fuse looked fine, we changed it and everything was fine. Well, on my lunch break, I went home and was going to ride my bike back to work and the same thing happened. The fuse looks fine, but no electrical. I changed the fuse twice, and it still didn't work. Now this leads me to believe that maybe there was just a loose connection somewhere and changing the fuse jostled the connection enough so it worked after. Unforunately, it didn't work today, and I can't see any connective problems. So, after closer inspection, if I don't find a loose connection, where should I check next?

    has to be either the blinker fluid is low or the flux capacitor is getting too hot because you didn't replace the winter air with summer air in your tires

    ...or could be a bad connection somewhere

    Sheesh, all these smart ass remarks are reminding me of when I would get calls at the help desk from people saying their mouses didn't work. "Did you check the batteries?" I would ask.

    In all seriousness I would fill up the seminal fluid between the back rear tires so that your piston rod doesn't over shoot the header gasket.

    In all seriousness, since I have so many to choose from, which "back rear tires" should I drop my seed between?

    Don,
    Check the ground off of the battery, then check the lead that
    goes to the ignition (key switch), then check the wire from the
    ignition to the coil, then check the wire that jumps from
    that coil to the other, and then check the ground from the coil.
    By the sound of the bike that night it wasn't sparking. If it
    doesn't start at all its not the coil cause for the most part
    only fail when they're hot. If its not a bad wireing connection,
    its probably your condensor or zenier diode. If your zenior
    diode is shot, it would blow the fuse instantly when you put it
    in where it is now a conductor and not a diode. Look for a loose
    coil wire and in the mean time get a capacitor from Neal, John,
    Dave, or Hutch. Hutch having a brand new one and the right one
    for your bike. Capacitors are cheap and it couldn't hurt any. I'm
    leaving for Mid-Ohio on thursday or I'd come up and fix it. Let
    me know how it goes and I'll have my phone with me while I'm in
    Ohio. When I come back I'll put in a Tympanium and a Boyer where
    your riding it so much more, it will be a lot more reliable.

    Aaron

    Yeah... I already paid so now I think I'm going to go. I have a water pump in the van that's starting to fail but am going to make an attempt at it anyway. I'll never quit motorcycles even if the BSA is such a bitch around 9 grand. I'm racing the 250 at Mid-Ohio the way it is and not sure if I'll be running it or the Triton at Loudon. The Triton probably wont be run for the rest of the season from what I've heard. I need to talk to Dave. From what I''ve heard I did a number on the crank and rods.

    Anybody want me to ride there bike just let know
