    I started by disconnecting everything that wasn't necessary to make the bike run and then worked backwards from there.
    Good luck , but on a positive note you own the best motor ever put out by harley , totally dead nuts reliable
    Thanks Mick! Sounds very similar to what I've got going on. I think my grounds are all good...but I've said that before.

    sorry hes been out with the flu.
    talked with another tech. nothing jumped out at him though. tough to diag over the interwebs.
    pulled a 93 manual though and theres a whole section on the ignition system and testing for no spark conditions.
    i can try to scan and email it if you give me your address.

    My dad has a Evo motored Harley way back when. Ignition coil let go from vibration. But you replaced the coil. So I'd say ground as well.
