Hi anonymous, don't quite know what your asking but if you think your coil might be bad their is a way you can check it with an ohm meter. Remove the coil and set the ohm meter to Rx1 scale and touch the two meter leads together the meter should read zero. Then touch the meter leads to the brass posts that the pink and white wires were connected to, the meter should read 2.5--3.1 ohms. Next set the meter to Rx1K scale and touch the leads in the spark plug cable holes the meter should read 10,000--12,500 ohms any readings outside these numbers replace the coil, if you find any cracks on the coil replace it. If the coil checks out ok then re-intall it with both pink wires on one post and both white wires on the other, it does not matter which post you put the wires on as long as the same color wires go on, the same post. Good luck

I was riding and my motorcyle shut off completely. No power at all. I've replaced the battery, fuses and the starter relay switch. Every time I reconnect the battery the fuses blow when I conne

Some positive wire must be stripped and is touching your frame or something that is grounded. It is impossible to know which wire is that from here.
You need to check your wire harness closely all the way for a stripped wire.
Especially under the fuel tank and around the steering tree.

When the engine is hot, it shuts down hard to start. the power is very low sometimes no power.

the first thing you will do, is to check the primary winding of stator through spark test and try to replace the parts of ignition system that may cause of trouble.. ex. spark plug, ignition coil, CDI stator assembly....check also the wiring of ignition system for the shorted wire...

I have a low level hum in the MIC like a motorcyle in mt AT 4040

Remember this is a condenser mic that REQUIRES phantom power. There are several failures regarding this phantom power delivery that COULD cause your problem.

A "LEAKY" mic cable that is not a fully balanced cable can cause the problem. Test with another cable to exhonorate your cable.

A failure of the input bypass caps in your amp/preamp can cause the input to become unbalanced and let in hum.

A phantom power that is improperly filtered can also cause this. Test using a different source of phantom power.

Remember that you can easily get feedback that may oscillate like hum if you have a monitor speaker anywhere in "earshot" of the mic. They are very sensitive and intended for studio use.

The gasoline probably drained from the carburetor. Place the fuel valve on reserve or prime (if it has one). That will allow the bowls to fill again. The bike should start after a minute or so.
If the problem is that the motor won't turn over, check the handlebar switch, be sure you are in neutral and pull in the clutch.

Electrical problems and **** in the gas tank can cause misfires. It sounds more electrical in your case. But draining and flushing the gas tank is a cheap fix. Could also be a coil or spark plug problem. Check for a faulty, fouled or cracked plug, check for a good spark, check the coil for carbon tracking. Check the plug wire connections too and the wires.
