Bike is a 1986 XL600R
I pulled the CDI without looking at the wire colors first and their location doh.
Does anyone know the proper wire color sequence/position when plugged into the CDI?
If I switch things around the wrong way will the bike still run? Thanks .
I have this issue several times and cannot seem to figure it out. The four clutch spring bolts are the weakest bolts I have ever come across. I am not sure what the torque specs are, have the shop manual, have searched online and I can only guess it's around 4 ft/lbs. I have been told 8 and they seem to break every time around 7.
What is the proper torque for these bolts?
Should I find stronger bolts? I would still stick to the proper torque, but feel as if these things are butter.
Prior to reassembling the case, I tested the shifting and it seems the center fork attached to the shaft seems to stick at the steepest section of the drum. I have cleaned and tested all forks and surfaces for smooth movement, tried it with silicone and oil. With very little help, it seems to shift ok, but without the help, it binds.
Can I assume that once it is together the oil lines are attached and oil is added to the case, the binding will stop? I have tested every scenario short of assembling the entire motor.
Should I be able to successfully test the shifting with the case apart?
