When I disconnect regulator and fire bike up it will rev without back firing. Im making progress slowly by surely. I still have a slight miss on rear cylinder at idle but clears up under throttle. Any recommendations on where to purchase a regulator from?
Have you done a bench test on your Regulator / Rectifier?
Their all pretty much the same. Most if not all cheaper replacements come from China! Lucky us.Any recommendations on where to purchase a regulator from?
Unless you get O.E.M from Yamaha dealer or else were.
Usually, backfiring isn't due to Reg / Rec's.
More on the lines of Valve Adjustments and Synchronizing the carburetors afterwards along with new Spark Plugs. If I get a backfire once every 3 years, then I think it is someone else, Who is riding along side of me.
