Hi, I have been having some issues getting my ped back on the road.
The bike won’t start. I cleaned the points and checked the points gap; all good. The points are opening at 23• BTDC. The condenser, when isolated from the circuit reads .249 micro-farad from the case to the lead wire. Checked the spark plug gap and cleaned it too. The plug gives a spark when it is rested on the cylinder head. I noticed that the spark wasn’t as big and blue as I’ve seen it before so I checked the output of the primary ignition coil and only got 4 vac out of it. The lighting coil reads a full 6 vac. So, I followed the red wire of the wiring harness and found a short in it. The red wire was chaffed and had grounding to the frame. I’m not sure if this could have over heated the coil and caused an internal short in the coil. I don’t know. I have tried to source a new primary ignition coil for the CEV 6832 magneto without any luck so far. The lights, and blinkers work, lock switch and engine cutoff work fine, and the battery is charged. It just has not decided to startup.
The bike is setup with a Polini 80cc cylinder kit on a Minarelli V1, a BRN 47mm custom cut cylinder head (super street), a Dell’Orto 16:16 carburetor mounted left, and an EV Racing Equipment exhaust pipe. It’s basically set up like an Argentinian street racer; fast and load. But right now it’s not doing either.
That’s about it. Please help. Thank you in advance.
