Thread: 780 SL problems

    Unhappy 780 SL problems

    I have owned this 1996 SL 780 since new. A few years ago I noticed that it was only topping out at 40 MPH instead of 50MPH. I didn't drive it much and the 40MPH was fast enough for the kids anyways. But today when I was riding it, it was jumping up to 50 again and back to 40 over and over. I was messing around charging its battery yesterday. Could I have fixed a shorting spark wire and now that's why I can get full power again??? Do coils start working again? What should I do to trouble shoot this?

    Thanks for any help,
    Dylan
