I posted yesterday about having success in synchronizing the carbs.
Also posted about the (a) starter switch being intermittent - glad there's a kick starter on this bike! Photorider suggested cleaning the starter relay under the tank and just as soon as I burn off the full tank, I'll get to it.
Today, when returning from a ride (she's running nice), when I (b) pulled the key up to shut her down, she kept running!!!
I'd been playing with the carbs and had the shorting spokes attached to the plug wires, so I just shorted out one cylinder and she quit - and the instrument lights went off as well.
Starting to wonder if there's a connection between (a) & (b) or maybe the switch is kaput. Any experience in this area, appreciated.
