Offhand, may I suggest that you have the battery externally fully charged. Thereafter start/run the bike with the voltage regulator (rectifier) disconnected. Shorted diodes or transistor inside the regulator maybe responsible for the abnormal heat buildup and likewise the backfire and/or the intermittent engine run. The CDI may be cutting out if the voltage is higher.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Bronco II fuel injector back fires and rpm go down then back up?

You may have a failing fuel pump, the symptoms are that of low fuel pressure. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank, the gas tank must be removed to access the pump for renewal. Remember to replace the filter and be careful not to create sparks and blow yourself up, seen it happen first hand.

Hi i have a 1999 ford cougar and the speedo is faulty sumtimes it works n sometimes it dont wen it doesnt it idles irraticly and sumtimes cuts out wot could this be?

I think you may have a faulty vehicle speed sensor (VSS). It is located in the transmission behind the engine. It does control the speedometer and the computer uses the speed signal to adjust fuel. You would really need someone to attach a scan too and look at the vss readings to see if they are erratic.
