One more chapter. I ran the bike around the country for a half hour,
park it in the garage and let it "soak" for an hour. When I tried to
restart it, the engine ran on only the #2-3 cylinders again. I did a
quick check to make sure I had 12 volts at the 1-4 coil and it was
good. Then, I pulled the cover off the ignition pickup (sensor) coils
at the end of the crank, sprayed the #1-4 pickup coil with ether
(starting fluid) to cool it down. The #1-4 ignition system came to
life and the bike was running on all four cylinders. I hope I have
found the culprit. The old electronics are like my knees; they used
to work great and now they kinda work.
I'll look for replacements and see what happens.
