    Hesitation 1980 with TCI

    Yessir I did, running .28 plug gap. Ok, I moved the clip all the way down on the needle and the hesitation up top dissapeared, it was isolated to the bottom 1/8th to 1/4 of the throttle. I ordered the next three bigger mains over 130, and and two pilots up from 45. I'm back to the third clip...

    Hesitation 1980 with TCI

    Just a little update. I installed a Honda MP08 coil and some Accel plug wires I had laying around. It cleared up the dieing and spark cut issue I was having, but it hasn't fixed the hesitation completely. I did find the idle air screws didn't have o rings and were pulling air. Fixed those...

    Hesitation 1980 with TCI

    Hey, what do ya know! Yessir, that's some of my handy work. One of my buddies is a gearhead too and brought me that idea. Honestly wish I would have thought of that one first ha ha! Copy that on the coil, got her parked until I can get one ordered. This is how I have it wired between the...

    Hesitation 1980 with TCI

    Alright fellas. I got the original box working again! Went through and reflowed the board, found a couple that bubbled out when hit again. Fixed the cap leg and used some gorilla glue epoxy to cement the black capictors. So I rode it the 3 miles to work today with the plugs gapped at .015...

    That might explain the blantent dieing issue.

    10/4, that's about what I figured. Thanks. Whelp, I'll throw the original box back in tomorrow and see if I get spark again. Regardless I think a new coil plugs and wires are in order. I'll check back in and let y'all know if the box kicks off.

    Nice! I'm sure you'll be fine, I think these twins are bullet proof if you set them up right. I would prefer an electronic ignition over points any day. This bike is just angry right now.

    Mini flathead, got between the side and cover then popped the cover off. I did reflow the original board again tonight and fixed the broken leg on the cap. Put some epoxy on it, I'll drop it in and see if it gets spark again in the morning.

    Hesitation 1980 with TCI

    Yes sir that's the one I'm working on. My buddy was running those cheap pods but the lip was hanging over the ports and choking it. I've been running them with a piece of panty hose zip tied over the throat but took those off and it hasn't changed anything. I wear regular straight leg jeans any...

    Hesitation 1980 with TCI

    Wow! Ok I downloaded sleddog83's schematic from a link I found the other night. Looks like I have some more reading to do. Thank you gentlemen. I will give her a dab of solder and glue tonight and see if she gets spark back on this box. Ran her about a quarter mile from the house round trip...

    Hesitation 1980 with TCI

    Two ManyXS1Bs, sir last night I found a thread where you had told someone else the same thing. I cleaned the plugs up and re gapped them to .015 before I turned in. Didn't get a chance to ride it today. Going to run it in the morning, fingers crossed! Jim I was thinking about your first...

    Hesitation 1980 with TCI

    Thanks Jim. Yes, you are correct. The problem moved to high end with the original box, to low end with the replacement box. I stopped getting spark with the orginal box, but I'll put it back in and see what happens. That's wise advice really. The fuel system on this bike was in really poor...

    Xjwmx, thanks for the response! -No, right now it misses and hesitates consistently under load and through the power band. -Yes, the spark issue has been fixed. It idles fine, and revs good now. It just won't run through the gears under load without hesitating, falling on it's face and coming...

    Hesitation 1980 with TCI

    Hello everyone, this is my first post. I've been lurking for about three months now and the collection of knowledge here is awesome! I have owned a 02' M2 Buell cyclone and chopped 78' honda 500 twin over the years, but this is my first venture into the world of yamaha. Ok, so I have been...
