Has anyone here replaced an Ignition Pulse Generator?
It appears mine has gone bad.. bike died mid ride and now plugs aren't firing. Engine is throwing code 19. Is it possible for me to access the connector on the pulse generator without removing the rads? It's very difficult to to reach. Thanks in advance.
The pulse generator connector is the red connector on the wire out of the alternator cover.
If you pull the lower inner cowl, you might be able to reach between the engine and frame to disconnect. It's inside a connector bundle protected by a rubber sleeve.
I had to use a couple of long forceps to pull it far enough to disconnect.
Ok, got to it. Any tips for removing the case? Got all the screws out, but it's in there pretty good.
The cover is aligned with dowel pins, plus the alternator cover gasket.
The cover may be a tight fit with dowels and stuck to the gasket.
Here's the part number for the gasket it needed.
Don't forget to check ignition timing after replacement.
Warm up the engine, then remove the small timing plug on the cover, attach a timing light to #1 cylinder (rear) and with the engine at idle (1300 +/- 100 RPM) the "F" should align with the index mark.
I had the exact samething happen to my 2000, it gave me a code 18 so I bought a new generator and a used converter. It ended up being the converter so just because it says its the generator does not mean its that
