hi,i used to have one of these,from memory,when you get the battery out as far as you can you have to disconnect the terminal before it will come any further,mr yamaha didnt believe in making long cables,and if i remember i used to take the seat off and disconnect the other terminal before i even started trying to get it out,if you think getting it out isnt much fun,they are worse to get back in,and i am afraid that there is no easy way to do it as there is absolutley no room at all to work in.hope this helps ..cheers ian

had a similiar prob with a triumph. It backfired at low revs, a delay between throttle opening and revs increasing and bike felt like it wanted to stall at low speeed. Got the Carbs cleaned to find out the problem was infact Failing Ignition coil. Get those checked first before commiting to replacing other parts.

Hi, Emmett I'm assuming the front cylinder is cold you need "FIVE" things in order for a cylinder to run properly:
1. FUEL: in order to validate your not getting fuel spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner and hit the starter button, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you know you have a fuel delivery issue.
2. SPARK: remove the spark plug and with it connected to the spark plug cable ground the threads to something metal you should see a bluish white spark if not you have a faulty spark plug, spark plug cable, ignition coil, condenser, CKP, ECM, sensor or the wiring in between.
3. COMPRESSION: you must have at least 80-100 PSI for most bikes if not perform a leak down test you may have a burnt or bent valve or hole in the piston or broken rings.
4. CAM TIMING: confirm your timing marks are aligned to see if the cam chain or adjuster are worn out and the chain has skipped a couple teeth.
5. IGNITION TIMING: on older bikes check to see if your points have not closed up, timing plate has not become loose and confirm with a timing light for proper retard and advance functions, on newer bikes where timing is controlled by an ECM and is nonadjustable check you CKP, TPS, MAP, O2, sensor or it's counterpart for integrity.
