  1. I did manage to start engine tho it will be a process to get it wright.The little red light does not work so I just wing it!The only electric tool I can use is a multimeter. Balancing the tb's is difficult with a manometer,regrettably I resort to the Twin Max till balance is somewhere near then I can use the manometer to get it right. Phase sensor was the main problem---then ecu connection+many many other problems that made this repair a night mare,all in all if I SQUINT I think I see light at tunnels end---thank all of you for your support.
  2. Thank you for replying to my post Mr.80cx-----fuel filter was replaced,fuel pump works fine,relays+fuses ok, side stand disconnected ,strong spark to plugs. Tps setup 150mv/375mv all connected not running (remember this is a 98 model/different from 99+years). The rpm sensor on flywheel was cleaned (one chunk of debris ) but not checked for mvolts . I'm going to check out the ecu as best I can,the po had issues with this bike before he dumped it on me so I feel it necessary to dig deeper. I would like to know more about a product from Australia called My ECU has anyone tried one ?
  3. I am having difficulty starting my loving EV+ could use some direction before it accidentally catches fire.The bike displayed every symptom of bad air temperature sensor----so I replaced it! Then it gave symptoms of bad phase sensor control,I tested it as best I could it was bad soooooo I replaced it.Every wire is connected as it should be,charger on battery to stay charged,one+half new plugs replaced,valves ok. I could start bike before + after changing out phase sensor but not for long as I was playing with tps adjustment.Tps is set about 150mv,to continue I must have engine running.Engine will run without any tps wires connected,soooooo that should not be a problem??? I went the Vaseline route +applied liberally to every thing including myself---------never ever use that baby fragrance stuff------all I'm gonna say is that awful smell doesn't play well with bourbon----flywheel sensor was cleaned,the only thing I can think of left to do is KICK the tires,but I cannot raise my leg that high(it's on a lift) Thank you
  4. I replaced the phase sensor now it starts so--------maybe now I can make headway getting this thing road ready(only 4 months till spring)!!! Am getting to know the EV really well-----that could be good or bad !
  5. Just how important is the phase sensor+how do we test it?
  6. Well ,It's 2019 now ARE these fuel lines still available ????

    Decent Tune-up

    Thanks for your quick response + interest with my problem.For some reason I have 3 hot wires,the middle or yellow wire we don't worry about,its the other 2 that concern me.Somewhere I read the multi tester is connected to the battery,so if striped wire is hot + plain wire is neg. then things just got a lot easier. When connected I find the multi meter is in overload mode + the numbers are different each time I check (roaming ????). While checking the harness separately I find exactly the same multi readings as when connected to the tps----SOOOOOO what that tells me is there must be a short between the bike harness + the ecu,I will perform a continuity test + see what the outcome is! I purchased a engine temp sensor from MG Cycle however it is not made for the 98 ev ,so beware---they are happy to except a return (there mistake) then I'll purchase the correct one. thank you for your input .

    Doc I"m havin ah hell of a good time gettin to the tps setting,please show us in DETAIL how u connect the break out harness to the multi meter. By chance do u connect both outer tps wires together,then connect to the multi meter? You show a yellow wire(middle) but none with the end to the tps(on the multi meter). With mine I get mV through all 3 wires,I am not using the middle(yellow) wire at all for testing. the engine will not start due to excess flooding,any idea what thats about??? 98ev11 calif----thanks
  9. Thanks for the posted info.I ordered mine just now,I got free shippin+I learned where the arse end of nowhere is in AUZ
  10. I find this most confusing ---- but I guess I understand?--- the cdi is mounted to the ecu witch is next to the battery. Why didnt they abbreviate battery also??? Because 1cdi isnt enough th ey installed #2 cdi behind the side plate,so you say,whats the problem? nothing here,I'm gonna have to get me a larger bottle of Bn(bourbon) too cope!!!! Thanks for your imput
  11. Thank you Mr. Goose for your speedy reply! So, if thats the ECU what is the big square box(8")next to the battery,I thought that was the ECU!!! Please correct me,thank you.
  12. I own a 98 EV behind the side cover operator side is a THING,it looks like regulator except 2/3 times larger,has about ten wires coming from it. on it is marked,Magneti Marelli aei 450 B,can someone help me identify what this thing is? I will feel stupid later ,thanks!!!!
  13. I would like more info about the reed switch---did you make it or was that the 10 cents you spent??? Would an automotive condenser work as well? How  does the wire hook up?

  14. The golden years are catching up with me-----I was absolutely for certain your post said"know",not knob!!! that makes it much easier to fix now! Now for the good stuff ,I mentioned BOURBON cause I"m a bourbon sort of guy however last week at Gliders place ol" 2Wings fed me some IRISH WHISKEY=====best dadburn whisky I ever drank(good for rust removal 2)----Tullamore Dew they call it,better than MAKERS MARK+just a fraction of the price of GOLD!!!!
  15. Good mornin Mr.LowRider,thank you for your immensely informative posting of co adjustment,now it will be a snap to adjust correctly.On a 2nd note please share with us what brand BOURBON you drink-----I have an inquiring mind!!!!!
