ok things are looking better but I think I should stop chasing down ideas and ask for a bit more help, Long story short I stored the bike for 3 weeks last october, started it up and it ran, cant remeber if it ran rough or not, I let it warm up while I closed the garage, ( About 5 min ) as soon as I idled up to start to go it died and would not start. friend told me the battery would do that ?? tested the batt and it came back bad, replaced the battery 2 weeks ago, got some spring service at a shop and they couldnt get it started with the new battery, they told me the plugs were fouled.... but wanted 350$ to check.... so I pulled the plugs out, they were fine, replaced them anyway, I have spark from the plugs when I ran a wire to the neg terminal. I might not have been grounding them right when I was testing them against the headers and area. I doubt it would be the ground wire on the starter, it wouldnt really make sense. I tried holding the throttle open 100% and nothing but around 50% it started firing but would not stay lit.
I have dropped the bike twice but both were while I was walking it.... and it landed mostly on me both times, could the recifier be weak or am I better off changing the gas? or any other suggestions would be very helpful, thanks!
also I have some experiance working on cars and tractor trailers, so I am not offended by little things I have might have missed, everything helps!
