What battery do you have ?

Commonly it’s the regulator that fails and is the mother of the bike’s electrical system.

Switch on the bike.Β  Switch your meter to DC Volts.Β  Rev up to 2000 – 3500 rpm

You should see 14.6v at least.Β  The books for the GV engine state norminal running rate is 14 – 16v max.

Any 13v readings? The regulator is probably gone.

HT leads normally are ok & it’s insulator – Usually it’s the black coil itself, that goes out too.Β Β  If you ask me,Β  Coils & regulators are usually the biggest let downs on electrical side.

As for your fueling side. A good carb clean is handy always.Β Β Β  I am going to publish an article that shows step-by-stepΒ  Jet Swapping & some extra info for owners looking to self-maintain their carbs.
