what pickup are you using??? what flywheel are you using???
the 750 has 2 pickups and 1 flywheel exciter..
the 1100 has i pickup and 2 exciters on the flywheel.. cant mix and match the 2.............dan
82 xv 750 skull on grips,levers,3rd brake and side covers.soft bags and tool bag, relay for coils, fresh inferno red, paint code PEL(red)

no time to do it right..always enough time to do it twice.
it is if is isnt :con:
If it went together easy... you forgot something.
when in doubt.... ground it out!

The flywheel and pickup are both from the 1100. I bought the motor, tci, pressure sensor, and spark coils from an 1100 and put it in the 750 frame.

Got my tci in from ignitech. I hooked it up and I'm still not getting spark. It's not turning over fast enough so I'm going to get both of the batteries I have charged and then try again tomorrow.

Scratch that, I decided to try one last thing, and ground the blue and yellow wire. We've got spark!!!!!!!
