Question about 2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
Front plug wet, rear plug black. Resistance of plug conectors 9k ohms on front 7k ohms on rear. I have found most bikes run around 5k ohms. What is the correct reading. At higher rpms front cylinder will attempt to fire. Both plugs will fire removed from cylinders and grounded
First you'll need to get a jet kit from West coast star. Then you'll need to jet the carbs to run equally. This may take some trial and error. Another thing that worked on my bike was the upgraded coil kit they sell. It's almost double the voltage of the stock coils and comes with better insulated wires for a more uniform resistance. I haven't had this problem since. It'll make the cylinders fire evenly and save you from those pestiferous fouled plugs. I hope this helps.
