    Starting issues

    On my bike, I check the fluids and battery and I have a volt gauge on it. The bike crank up good. I let it warm up at about half choke for about three to four minutes, I check the volt gauge was in the first green where the idle was around 900 rpm,s. I took off easy getting it warmed up some more. I rode about 30 miles and as I started to take off and get up to around 40 mph, the bike just stop running. It was no knock or jerking in the motor. I pulled in a safe spot and noticed that the lights were still on and the volt gauge with the switch on was still in range. Check carb, was getting fuel.As I turned it over all it did was spin, not catching. I know bike had new battery,stator and voltage regulator put in last year. Havent got a chance to do any more technical dia on it.

    1990 FXR, so crank or cam position sensors, so pull a plug (or stick an old one in the wire) ground it, and check for spark.

    Do as Pete says
    If you have NO spark chances are good #47 is bad check the wires coming out of the cone for burns and melting, se if you have power on both sidesxof the coil

    I happen to look at the circuit breakers. All of them showed a postive except one of them. It was the one where the battery wire hooks up to. I am going to try that. Even with the lights ang ignition showing power to it. Would that one circuit from the battery cause the lights to still on. I think the one I am replacing is the main one?

    I really don't understand the question. Can you explain the problem you are having?

    What i am saying is the breaker that i am replacing should make the bike run instead of just cranking.

    Start at the beginning and tell us what problem you are having, your symptoms, what you've tried so far, etc.
