In the process of converting my bike to DC power to run LED lights (street-legal supermoto), I unsoldered a lead from my stator and ran it to my trailtech regulator rectifier along with the original yellow wire running from the stator to the regulator in order to gain a floating ground as I had seen many people have done before both here and on supermotojunkie.com. My question is the following, now that I cant get the bike to start since I rebuilt the engine and did all the wiring - Is all of the ignition circuit still chassis grounded (and AC power)? That is my intuition, and that only the "accessory" or lighting circuit is DC/floated ground. The bike seems to have spark and fuel (shocks you when you stick a screwdriver in the plug boot), and backfires every once in a while but will not run. So this leaves me wondering if somehow the CDI isnt grounded properly, or the killswitch circuit is preventing it from running since it is wired wrong or something. The coil is still grounded to the frame as it is stock, and I think all my killswitch leads are frame-grounded as well but I will be double-checking that. Any other ideas on whats going on here? It has hotcams in it now which I had installed when the engine was rebuilt, so Im having a hard time checking the timing on it, not being the same as stock as far as markings it seems. I know this could definitely be an issue as well if anyone knows how to figure out timing with hotcams (i.e. # of timing chain pins between timing marks or something). Also is it possible for the timing to be off by 180 degrees or something crazy where it would appear to be timed right, but wouldnt run? Please help, I am frustrated as hell! Thanks!
