QuoteIt might be all the solvents talking, but that dancing guy is creeping me out!
QuoteTats are cool. Just don't get that needle near me.
QuoteI was trying to figure that out, but I couldn't get the picture clear enough to read the writing. Hint?Dawn :)
QuoteOK, SV's are notorious for not liking it when you mount a tach and the tach shorts. It makes the bike run on one cylinder and troubleshooting becomes a pain. If you have a tach mounted disconnect it and see if that helps. The connectors can get corroded during the winter.Does the bike run at all? Is it sputtering? If it runs, what happens when you take out the front sparkplug? Does it stall?
QuoteYou mention that it "seems" to be getting spark. Did you remove and ground the sparkplug and crank the bike over to see if the spark was there?If you are sure that it's getting gas, so I assume that it must be getting air, so the only problem is the spark. Just for the hell of it try to use some starting fluid to see if it starts to sputter. If it does, it could be the carbs. Did you clean the little filter screen that is inside the carbs themselves? It's real easy to overlook it. SV's have a little screen in the carbs that needs to be cleaned regularly since it gets clogged with debris. It's right behind the float bowl valve seat.
