First post to this forum, so be gentle!

Been reading the threads on the TS185's. I have a 77 I picked up a couple years ago and really just now getting around to going thru it. It has been fouling plugs and won't tack out properly, bogs up to higher rev's. Been through carb a couple times.
Last summer, it had the run-away engine syndrome, the throttle cable was not out of place. When I tried hitting the kill switch, I got a big shock. Found that problem the other day while checking out the ignition coils in the magneto. Both the electric & charging coils lead wires were rubbing on the crank shaft and had worn through. It was a result of a very bad repair job somewhere along the way.
Anyway, my pulser coil is bad and I tried to reapir it, but destroyed it in the process. Totally unwound it. Found some coated magnet/coil wire at Radio Shack today and will attempt to rewind it myself. Will let you guys know how it comes out.
I removed the clutch plates yesterday (clutch was slipping) and found the friction (driven) plates way below service limit, need to order replacements. Figured I'll order & replace the crank seals while I'm at it since those seem to be a problem with this bike.
Hope all this repair get the bike running right, would love to ride it!
Later,
Rickthefix
