Re: Blue wire to black wire nightmare
THE PROBLEM HAS BEEN FIXED
I put the bike on my car trailer and took it down to the shop where i purchased the engine.
For 2 hours their shop mechanic tried everything - there was much head shaking, swearing and cussing from the shop mechanic after he admitted defeat - the engine missing problem was unsolveable even after every single component was changed over for brand new components.
In the end they gave me another engine.
After installing the 2nd, replacement engine, it fired up on the first go with the black wire connected to the black wire and the blue wire connected to the blue wire; the engine idled beautifully and runs like a dream.
I AM AT A TOTAL LOSS TO EXPLAIN WHAT COULD HAVE EVEN BEEN THE PROBLEM
IT'S TOTALLY AND UTTERLY UNEXPLAINABLE!
If anyone ever has a situation where the engine only runs with the blue wire connected to the black wire and the black wire connected to the blue wire, PLEASE, do not even attempt to try and work out what the problem is - JUST RETURN THE ENGINE AND ASK FOR A REPLACEMENT.
