If a couple of holes are added to the block off plate it might help the air move. Like BB says tho the air box actually sucked the air in.

How about remove the block off plate for now and see if this helps.

The block off as in where the battery is now located? If I ride a without the front cover. No problems whatsoever.

Can't the battery sit there with out the block off? I guess there's a bracket that is part of the block off?

So back to adding a couple of holes? This would maybe add enough air flow because right now the fresh air doesn't have any where to go so it doesn't even enter.

Has any body else reported this same problem? Isn't this the plate made by fellow inmate Chris?

How come the air doesn't exit through the breather on top of the starter cover?

Not to mention that the later airbox with the flat filter was closed off to the starter area, but that starter cover did have the slots in it....

what is your charging system output ?
I can't imagine a properly functioning alternator running hot enough to affect the ignition.

That's what I'm thinking. It shouldn't run that hot just providing current for the battery charge, ignition and headlight:

The wires coming off the alternator al,it's feel like there melting...
...with it off even e alternator was way too hot to touch.
Needs to check alternator current andfind out why the alternator is running so hot. It's an Enduralast?

Yes. It's a endurolast. They have told me operating temp should not be over 300 and I would say it has not got over 300 but feels close. Going to check tomorrow.

This is from there website

EnDuraLast

Problem solved. Got home. Put the front cover on. Ate some lunch. Then went for another ride, and after about 20 minutes. Same damn problem as before.

Well, decided to take the cover off again, went riding around and apart from a little sputtering at the beginning once the air cooled it down she rose great again.

Emailed euromotoelectrics again and tell them this, they said it sounds like the hall effect sensor is working intermittently and they will send me a new one.

Other suggestions he said were to put spacers between the cover and motor to allow more air. But still think something's not rit. The front cover was sooooo damn hot when it was having problems when it was on, and with it off even e alternator was way too hot to touch. I'm going to take some temps tomorrow because john at euro says it should not exceed 300 f.
lol.

Oh the victim yet again. Forever crying victim.

The guy who got paid basically $400 to install the subframe, fix the seat mounting holes on the subframe, put the airbox eliminator kit and pod filters on, install the rearsets, install the exhaust, wrap the exhaust, put on and wire your crappy new charging system and digital ignition, mount and balance your tires, put new fork seals in your forks, change the oil in them, install new springs in them, put the clubman bars on, wire and mount a tail light, wire and mount rear turn signals, modify and install your tag bracket, clean your carbs, new spark plugs, and then try and diagnose for hours. You can fuck off lol.

I had a picture you posted on Facebook and caption texted to me, so I knew you'd have something new posted on here. Funny how the majority of this thread also said ignition coils. Also funny how you claim the jumper for them wasn't hooked up right. Even funnier all the people in here saying you're in over your head trying to fix it. And funniest yet how the lack of airflow combined with that great companies ignition and stator, who is great enough to not offer any wiring instructions for your year bike and unable to help when I call them, are the problem and you still blame me for "wiring the bike up wrong". Cute. See you this weekend at Bloodrag.

Hey guys, please take your little tiff elsewhere. We're friends here. Quite frankly, you're outsiders at our bar.

(Hell, I'm barely allowed a seat here . . .)

Yeah sorry guys. None of this involves you guys.

And can't make it to blood drag korey, sorry. Danny's to busy ripping out all the wiring everyone put there fingers on and redoing the whole truck. Nothing was salvageable. Well shouldn't say nothing, surprisingly enough all Pugsleys work was done right, no problems at all. Brake lights were just a fuse we all missed
