The question I have is, does the headlamp get supply from the same place as the ignition switch? If it does, chase the cable back to find the break or you can cheat and run a fresh cable from the battery fuse to the ignition switch. That would prove the theory.
Hope that helps.

Sounds like the slides on the carbs are sticking. When the engine is under a load it draws a lot more vacuum that just sitting & blipping the throttle...Lube your cables, check throttle stops, and check for vacuum leaks around the carb boots...would be the areas to first inspect. I hope this helps.

chance is something is loose and as the engine warms up it takes up the slack due to the metals expanding, try to track the location of the noise. this is an older bike and internal components may be worn out, and until oil gets there and engine warms up this would be normal. try using oil for high milage engines and some slick 50 treatment if you dont find anything loose. (like engine mounts, pipe mounts etc)

check pulse generators first, i found one burnt and one was open on my 87 hurricane 600. Ohm the wires out for opens or low ohm readings readings,they should be about 400ohms or more. if thats good then check out spark unit..if thats good then check to see if coils wires are getting 12v. Then if that is good check resistance of primary and secondary plug wires. or just replace them anyway and that one less thing to worry about. you have new plugs and wires. it can only really be the coils or pulse generator. hope this get you in the ballpark can iget a helpful on this thanks but if i helped you fix it by checking the pulse generators i'd like a very helpful, appreciate!

The last time I saw one of these bikes, (back in 1995 or '96) I was able to improve the clutch performance quite a bit by adjusting the cable at the lever. I don't recall as to whether or not they offered a hydraulic clutch actuator, (the one I worked on was a cable) but if they did you can try bleeding it.

Sorry I don't have a manual that I can get the procedure from, try checking with your local dealer if possible, they should be able to provide the service information. If not I believe there is a Hayes manual available.

Good luck.

With the float installed turn the carb upside down so the float is pointing up adjust the tab until you see the underside of the float is parrellel to the carberator's metal flat body section. This setting will provide the proper fuel level in the carb providing the proper maintained level of fuel for performance around tight turns as well as idling.

I had the same problem with a cars clutch. Get yourself a kit and take the whole lot apart, that is the total hydraulics involved with the clutch. Clean it out and fit the new rubbers and O rings etc. You will think it is a different bike after.
