Hi Michael, my name is Kenny
First off are you going to attempt to repair this now yourself ? If so will you feel comfortable going through a series of checks including a compression measurement and some electrical, you will need the tools to do so, I will instruct you through the process where we should be able to come up with at least what's causing it.
OK let start off and can you give me a number on the compression in ALL cylinders, starting from left to right ?
Not sure where you are located, if you have a Harbor Freight tool store by you, you can pick a pretty inexpensive one there, make sure you bring a spark plug where ever you go to get the correct size and reach
OK, good just get back when you can !
No Michael, its usually completely opposite, if an ignition component is on the verge of failing or falling out of its specific range it will usually happen when it heats up, that's the normal, to be honest with you I have never seen it this way, one question, has this bike even been down on the r/h side ?
When this thing runs how does it run ?
Thanks Michael, I have a few ideas, before we get into all that I still what to get that compression check and also if you don't have a timing light my look into borrowing one, I want to use it as a spark check ?
No problem Michael !
