After getting a ride from the nearby grocery store in a stranger's pickup with the Elite earlier this week, I resolved to see if I had a spare spark plug wire/coil assembly.

I did.

The bike starts much better and doesn't stall nearly as much. However, I still see little black pieces of crud floating in the gas tank, so I need to drain it, clean it and put a new fuel line and filter on it. I had to ride it a bit more so I put $4.00 bucks worth of gas in it earlier tonight and put another 12 miles on it. It wants to still stall when turning (especially right) from a stop at an intersection. And it still does a least once a time when I am riding it. So it is still a work in progress - but it is getting better.
