Are your coils old or new? Have you adjusted the points and timed it? Let us know what you are working with, we may be able to help you from afar.

Hey Alchemist,

Good looking bike!

Yep...A little more info would be helpful... do you have stock wiring or are you using something custom made? Does everything else work? Do you have a wiring diagram?

I can probably lend a hand (I live in Shoreline) but unfortunately I am in Las Vegas this week, however if you have some time this weekend and still need help I can find some time I think.

New condenser, new coil, new plugs, points are set properly. All check out fine on meter and feeler gauge. Just have wires wrong somewhere. I even put the headlight and bar end blinkers on there own circuits, and the ignition system on it's own. I'm baffled. I really need someone to help.

Brassneck,
I just purchased a 4 way bussed fuse block. I think this will help incredibly in keeping each circuit properly routed. That being said, I will attempt this one more time on my own. If it all goes well, awesome. If not, well, I hope to enlist your set of eyes on it.
