Cdi?

OK, may have answered my own question. Lead is about 5.8k ohm and coil is about 5.4k ohm. So it might point to possible CDI probs for weak spark. Is this thing possible to diagnose? Can you get into it? worthwhile?

cleaned up all connections. still seems like a heat related thing.

Yamaha XT200

Anybody out there with a manual for this old gal? I'm diagnosing the electrical side now. Would really appreciate a wiring schematic and a resistance value for the pulse coil if one is out there.

No experience but revlok is no longer in business of motor cycle clutches I believe.

Us TW folks seem to be rather conservative when it comes to spending money. With that in mind, I don't think we are the group to ask, even though the clutch is installed on a TW. Try asking the same question of the Honda/Yamaha/Suzuki, 250-400cc group. Gerry

Just discovered what I don't like about the Ricochet bash plate... 'cause it was time to change the oil. It's tricky enough to get that darn plug back in anyway, but with the bash plate in the way it's a real bear.

I rode the bike yesterday,and it's not really anything I'd do to anything I rode.It seems like it's pretty hard on the tranny because it's not a very smooth shift,it's almost like clutchless shifting before the revs are low enough. It does keep the bike from moving while in gear till the throttle is rolled on,but that seems to be the only benefit,at least for me as I wanted my wife to be comfortable riding it,but it hits too hard when shifted to be an enjoyable ride for her. That's just my thoughts on it,I've heard great things on these things when offroaded. This setup was done by a dealer,and had very few miles on it,so it may need to break in a bit. Just sayin.

If you decide to sell; please let know. I'll pay a fair price, and give you a very good used set of friction disc(less than 2K easy miles) to replace it with.

I passed on the TW,not knowing how much was done originally to get the Revlok in,I wasn't sure how much of a PITA it would be to return to stock.

the spoke kit has three different size spokes so its a little tricky.
