Hard starting

Post by mbskeam » Tue Sep 20, 2005 5:46 am

hello,
well the last few times that I have started my bike its been a real pain, did all the usual things like.... plugs ,points check and gap, fuel etc.....well when I got it running I had the dist cap off and saw that the points had a big ark to them, well as I played with the condenser wire, it started to run real bad and then died, why because of this........

Looks good, dont it?

well it came apart just by touching it, as it was running.
at least I had a spare in the tool bag, the point that I am making is check your condensor once in a while, with it running........
