    I think it will make it richer if you raise the needle?

      These go bad sometimes, maybe switch one around from a non wet plug just for shits and giggles.https://www.yamahasportsplaza.com/oe...0/electrical-1

        make sure ur air cleaner is clean , no critters moved in. how does it smell? rich , lean? wow, i ve never seen the daveJ OEM needle mod. coils have been known to go bad, especially when we forget to reconnect one and run it. there is a coil test. whens the last time u drained the fuel and aired out fuel tank, moisture will get in there .

          bike smells rich quite often.
          i ordered a coil off ebay from a low mile bike to try out once it gets here. I have suspected the coil, (or the start of SVS) but not sure why after a couple miles it would start to work right each time.
          I have never drained and aired out the tank, but I do run through a tank or so each week, even with having the Indian.
          This has been an ongoing issue since last fall.

        You'd be surprised how much moisture to get into the fuel tank

          Could be the 10K ohm resistor in the cap has died. Inside the cap is a straight slot brass nut that holds the resistor. Take it out and check it with a multimeter. Could be the only issue you have.


          Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

            I put the needle back how it was before.
            Also got my slightly used coil in and on. I've only been on the bike 2x now. I also installed the new plugs. It seems to be fine now. Guess i'll know for sure after a few more rides.
            I never checked the ohms in the cap, as I picked up a coil with caps still on it from a 13k bike for less than I could have bought a new cap for. Plus I knew they were put on right,
            Thanks everyone, Hopefully this issue is now in the past.
            owning a motorcycle is not a matter of life or death, it is much more important than that
