    I'm not sure if it's the old style. My 2004 is the new style. If it's the old style then it would be an easy fix to rewire it or just change the ign.

    Why would I need new bars and controls?

    I actually thought of that. But they both seem to work fine.


    It seems there have been some problems in the past. Previous owner/ers rewired some of the harness, and added alot of crap. Basecally its a mess. And I don't like have a messy harness, connections hanging loose under the tank instead of having em under the seat etc.
    I could throw in a new ignition, but I really want a fresh start :) Killing 2 birds with 1 stone which also eliminates the ehc, makes more sence to me...

    So what did you find out what your problem I'm having the same issue my rear cylinder is starting to fall out unless I give it some gas but to tell you the truth I check the Ohms on the spark plug cables and they were pretty high so I replace them with new plugs wires please let me know what happened

    Dont fix but one thing at a time. Otherwise you will not know what was the problem. Seal up all your intake leaks first and reset your carb and test with new plugs. After your confident in that, go from there. Start with making sure you are getting the correct amount of fuel/air mixture before tackling anything else.
