I consider myself a good mechanic. Do all the work on my bikes myself. This one has got me stumped. I thought I had a carb promblem. Bought an Edelbrock. Anyways - when I try to start my bike it starts for about a second or two then dies. Did a top end not to long ago, compression is good. Timing is correct, checked about 5 times. New plug. And this all started all of a sudden, my bike was running great. Washed my bike, started it then killed it took it out the next weekend and it would not start. I have torn down my top end twice so far to see if there are any problems. Could this be electrical? I did diconnect my kill switch still did not start. Do CDI units go bad? I also performed the blue wire mod. Please help. I want to go riding so bad. My wife is just about to kick my ass out the door because I am spending so much time tring to get my bike running. If anyone has any ideas! Edelbrock have no choke has anyone had cold starting problems?
