You may be on the right track suspecting the ignition. Some years ago a
German friend of mine experienced intermittent bad running as well. He
went through just as much as you've done without getting to the bottom
of the problem. As a last resort he changed the ignition cables and this
did the trick. He said he got a completely new bike, running so smoothly
like never before. Might be worth a try if nothing else works.

> I've checked a few things on my '96.I purchased a compression gauge and tested the cylinders. They appear about equal. 2 @150 psi and 2 @ 160 psi. I removed the air box (for good), and intend to install pod filters and a crankcase filter.I cleaned out #3's bowl and float pin (the one that flooded) and sprayed carb cleaner in all the intakes. I didn't remove/adjust the jets. I cleaned the spark plugs again; they all show about the same resistance on a meter. I put the tank and carbs back on and it's still not running well and stalls if I give it any gas, but I think I need pods in place.I'm beginning to think the ignition is at fault. As I mentioned in my last post, the engine was missing big-time a few weeks ago (before the hydro lock) then it magically starting working again after sitting for a day to two.
