Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
Ok i changed out the ignition coil to a screaming eagle and 8 gauge spark plug wires. since then when i try to go wide open my bike misses if i let off a little it will to continue to accelerate but i assume this is more of a problem than not being able to accelerate as fast as before the upgrade.
if you have any ideas please let me know.
Sorry, but I am a real stick in the mud on this kind of stuff. If your new plug wires are braided, throw them away and put the originals back on. Put the stock plugs in and forget those split fire junkers, the theory is not even any good. It sounds like the spark is blowing out under compression. Fancy spark plugs and wires and all that nonsense will not gain you 1 horsepower. The sceamin' eagle ignition module is the same as stock, except for the rev limit, so it's ok. Really, some of these after market plug wires are inferior and the braided ones can act like a kill switch.
