I disconnected the two blue wires that were soldered together (one that goes to the rear brake light and the one that goes to the strator).
I grounded the blue wire coming from strator to the frame.
The blue and grey wires going to the brake light are both disconnected from junction box.
The bike starts like usual and the same problem exists:
-Bike starts up no problem
-Bike gets up to 25-30mph
-Bike dies after a minute or so of top speed
-The bike does not die if rear brake is applied
Since I have replaced the condenser and am now bypassing the brake light, I am not sure what the issue could be. Perhaps the coil?
I have another coil laying around that was on my Pacer Super Sport so maybe I'll try swapping the coils to see if that fixes the problem. I do have a volt meter that I can use to test the two coils but am unsure what I am looking for as far as the volt reading goes and how to test.
Also I need some clarification on the point behind grounding the blue wire coming from the strator.
Does this bypass the light entirely? Should the bike run normally after doing this, or was this a test to just see if the bike starts? Also, is there a safe way to bypass the lights altogether in order to see if they are the issue?
