idle problem when warm

Ok The valves are next to check on my list but I was wondering if anyone knew what the reading should be to test the spark plug wire and how to test the pulsar coil? those are next on my list.

i would check the plug wire by reading ohms to the coil like before. if it has the same reading with and without plug wire, then it should be good.

one of these days your gonna figure this thing out.

I'm thinking you should of started your own thread on this... Your posts are spread out over several pages and it has become quite fractured to follow along....

I see now that you have turned to electrical rather than carb problems... When you replaced the parts in the carb did you make any adjustments to the settings or just leave them stock?

Good point, If this doesn't do it I will start a new post with everything I have done.

I tried it stock and messed with setting in the carb and no matter what I did the problem never changed. I have a different low mileage carb in it now with the exact same issues.

It seems strange that this problem is off idle... Usually an ignition problem will see the engine run better near idle and crap out with revs...

Here is something to try in the carb that is simple: Move your jet needle down 2 clip positions and see if there is any difference { move clip away from pointy end}... An overly rich needle setting can cause a stumble like you describe...

David,

do you think it worthwhile to check valve lash? WHY I ask, seems close to this fella's issue.

For sure, always try to check off the list the easy less expensive potential solutions before you start forking out money to replace components you may think faulty...

Dunno maybe it will help you.
Well I inspected the battery connection and the ignition switch, and they look OK.

I'll try to describe my problem better:
I've pulled the tripmaster and the rev meter from the bike, so now if I turn the ignition key, no consumers are on the bike by default.

Multimeter - Continuity tester is on the Battery negative and positive pole. If I turn on the key, nothing happens. But if I switch on any consomer, let's say the horn for expample: it starts beeping (the multimeter). I don't know if this is normal or not.
Voltage in the battery is 13V if it's not connected to the bike. As soon as I connect it, it drops to about 0.5V. If I turn on any consumer (horn for eg.) voltage immediately drops to 0.0V.

I've checked the cables and can't find a pinch on them.. What should I do now? Please help:)

Thanks,
Sumi

Thanks for the help!

Not necessarily, a friend had this happen and he "hard" soldered the terminal back onto the battery. Still works. If the battery is good try that and save yourself some money.....

I don't have the tools to solder it back, so I've bought a new one.

But still, I have a question:
I've heard about the issue that for some models of Adv it restraints the movement of the kickstarter. What can you say about it? How does the kickstarter work with this side stand?
On my 99 the side stand does block the swing of the Kick Start. I have to stand to the left side of the bike and use my right leg to kick it. Felt a bit odd a first but I love the side stand. Check the bolts frequently at first. Even with a medium thread lock mine vibrated loose.

I guess we won't have to worry about buying that one.
