TCI for 98 XV 1100

Virago Tech Archive (YahooGroups) mailing list
After two months of ripping things apart to find the source of rough running and backfire, Including cleaning some major gunk from carbs , I am only left with the potential that I have a bad or damaged TCI.  One of the issues I noticed in my two month tear down was that the stator lead was partially melted and shorting to rear cylinder exhaust.  The actual lead ohms out ok, but I fear that it may have damaged the TCI when it was shorting to the frame.
Any thoughts on this possibility? Any suggestions about where I can have a TCI tested or repaired?
Thanks
Jim

The shorted stator wire wouldn't affect the TCI, it would affect the R/R
and battery charging. There is no connection to the TCI. What do your
plugs look like? Can you post pics of them after a good run?

Running rough and backfire is usually the result of carb problems. Is
the backfire thru the carb or exhaust?

Thx Bill

I am still without fuel tank and seat, so have not been able to actually drive it since my carb and fuel system clean out .   But I did put new plugs I ahd run it on the stand for while. Plugs stay clean and dry.

The backfire is through exhaust.

OK, is the backfire rythmic or just occassional?

 blockquote, div.yahoo_quoted { margin-left: 0 !important; border-left:1px #715FFA solid !important; padding-left:1ex !important; background-color:white !important; }  have you checked the charging rate at idle and half throttle?
