Re: Bike backfires when started with kickstarter

As an experiment to try to find the problem, do not turn the ignition on until after you have positioned the piston at just after TDC (ideal kicking position).
Turn ign on and then kick.
Let us know what happens.

Re: Adding a Kickstart to a 3AJ Tenere.

I know we have a problem with photobucket, but I was poking around today and found that my link in this story is still working.
There may be a workaround for the problem. :shades:

Re: New regulator, low voltage still

Make sure regulator has a solid connection to the frame and the neg. terminal of the battery.
Run additional wires if you have to and scrape the contact area for good connection.

Re: ignition coil compatibility

Just about any coil from a CDI motorcycle will work.
Go to your local bike shop, show them your old one and see what they have.
