You either mixed up the coil plugs or the plug wires,,,don't panic,,I've done that I don't even know how many times,,,get a wiring diagram off the internet unless you have a manual,,( I suggest haynes manuals they are inexpensive and are very thorough and easier to understand than chitons for me anyways),,,,that's my call
It just turns over then backfires. I have a Clymers manual. I was thinking about the same thing as you last night & was hoping that I did route the wires wrong, but unfortunately it looks like I did wire everything correctly. I’m going to have to check to see if I’m getting spark at each of the cylinders. I don’t believe that my battery is bad, I’ve kept it charged this whole time and it holds the charge well. I was a little surprised that my spark plugs were not wet when I pulled them & kinda wondering if for some reason my carbs aren’t giving enough fuel. Guess this is going to be a process...which I’m not looking forward to lol. I just want it running again!
Sure seems like it would be right? The coils are aftermarket not oem & came with 0 instructions. I’m kinda wondering if they don’t connect to the harness differently. It’ll probably take me a couple of days, but I’ll track down the issue at some point. Thanks for your advice again. I’ll let you know what happens.
I've owned two a K5 and a K4. I souped up and drove the K5 hard but had problems with the cam chains on both. It was my "chopper". The K4 was my city bike. Fixing them would be easy but, I lusted after that '86 GL1200 Aspencade.
I believe on a quiet night,
I can hear the fish laughing.
After going thru the wiring with a fine tooth comb, I found everything was as it should be. Oncee I confirmed that it wasn’t electrical I took off my carbs again. This time I separated them & then dipped them in carb cleaner. That did the trick! Finally got it running and tuned. It’s nice having it back!
