What is the combined dual coil primary resistance as wired on the electronic bikes? I can't remember right now.

Keep the primary as high or a little higher than stock and I still think swapping components is the only real test for ignition.

Another possibility you might want to double check (info courtesy of the Bum here by the way!) is to check whether the enrichener parts are on backwards. I know you say the carbs were carefully rebuilt but this is easy to do. In fact I was experiencing similar issues recently that you are describing until I found my mistake. At any rate, good luck, hope you solve it.

I'm familiar with the enrichener info on Bums site. I had to read it a few (or more) times before I completely understood it. The enricheners were inspected and verified to be assembled properly while taking the carbs apart. They were inspected and reinspected after replacing the shaft orings to verify they were re-assembled right.

I'm still working out of town but hope to get home tomorrow and back on it.

Your location says Atlanta & Memphis, is the bike in Atlanta? It sounds like you've got a handle on this, and I'm no expert, but maybe another set of eyes would be helpful. If nothing else, I've got a coil and plug wires we could swap out to eliminate that from the equation. Gimme a call, 678.469.3298.

If the bike is in Memphis I'd be happy to offer another set of eyeballs/ears, etc.

I agree with Wirespokes that dormant bikes will take some miles to "relax" again. Just went through that with my 93 GS (and previously my 83 RT).

I love every motorcycle I've owned and even some that I haven't.

Gents, Thanks for the generous offers to assit. Brad, the bike is in Atlanta. I live in Fayette County but work in Memphis. I may take you up on the offer Brad, I'll look at it again today and will probably be in touch.

Thanks again!!
