    My '97 Gsi(with 160 Hours) is starting to miss at idle until it warms up. I can feel it when I start it & pull away from the launch ramp. It won't stall but it feels like 1 cylinder is cutting out then it comes back again. Once I throttle up from idle it is fine. After it warms...

    I suspect that I have a bad switch box which is causing my engine output to falter when it hits about 4,000 RPM. The 210 HP M2 engine has 2 of these switch boxes. As I understand it, one switch box handles 3 cylinders on one side of the engine and the other switch box handles the other 3. I...

    I have a Sportster 1997 with the 717 engine. My problem is that sometimes (very sometimes...) the engine runs smoothly and well, and I get up at top speed without a problem. After turning off the engine and start it again, it goes up to about 3000-4000 rpm, smokes and runs unevenly. I have...

    I am planning on putting a different momentary switch and hard wiring it to the wires that go to the stock switch. My question is ... Is there any critical circuitry in the OEM switch that I will be bypassing if I install a different one?
