BTW these are two coil points stators I am building.
I had also taken the bike out to test the running and carb action . I knew that if I touched the brake levers the motor would quit so I was sure to let off the levers before I rolled to a complete stop so I could release the levers and not kill the motor.
Then I would put the bike on it's stand and reve the motor as high as it would go and squeeze the levers to watch the brake light. It was so bright and pulsing that it blew the bulb.
Now for more weirdness. With the brake light blown I could still ride the bike but now when I used the brake levers the bike would stay running until about the last five feet of rolling then the motor would cut off.
WTF huh WTF!!! this is a new dilemma I have never seen.
So I start to think the coils is internally shorted. I come back to the house and remove the stator and solder in another used coil. I start to do drill spin tests and same thing Bright pulsing brake light and the spark goes out.
So I start to think grounding, and I run a clip lead cable from the brake light socket to the head. Same trouble.
I guess I need to take a known good working stator off of a motor and bolt it up and see what the fuck.
Anybody have this happen??? (edited)
