figures. no matter what.... things seem to take 4x longer than planned (being optimistic) and cost 4x as much as planned as always run into problems and other things that need to be done while there. just the way it goes, PLAN AHEAD.
the 84 also has the ignition picks up's on the back of motor, got to take swingarm off to get to them? and.... they don't make ignition pick ups for it anymore/discontinued. the 85 and newer models they put the pick ups on the front of the motor, a little easier to get to , but still unavailable? they go bad... that (to me) is BAD.
intermittent motor /ignition stoppage when hair wires get hot in the ign pick ups and separate... let it cool, the wires come back together, motor runs... til motor gets hot again and wires pull apart in the Ign pick ups and no signal to the ign coils so no ignition.
mine did that once after I pressure washed it. just died, no spark. towed it back to place.... let it sit for a week/dried out... started right up?? don't trust it now out of tow range. water on the ...knee???
