    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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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!!!!
  7. 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?

  8. 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!!!!
  9. 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!!!!!
  10. Thank you Mr. Antman---I have a small screwdriver,know where the hole is,however I don't know when to stop turning the screw!!!!!!!!!!!! Please advise.
  11. Please explain what eepron is +how to set it up as mentioned byMeinolf.What type hardware do I need? 98EV

  13. Hi Andy,I just found your return post so we are even. I am working on a transmission,the weird looking nut at front on the input shaft was the problem.A member from Wildgoose got me through it,all I had to do was drill a hole insert a stick dynamite--------- Thanks for your help anyway
  14. I am totally confused at this point---are we saying replace the entire light (200$),or should we buy a replacement from Guzzi_Tec(80$)? Or should I just make a martini and not care !!!
