    Read the replys on this link it should tell you what you ned to know. Yes there is a problem with some of the coil wires and it sounds liike you have one with the wires crossed. If a "customer service tech" doesn't know that there is a problem don't assume there is not one.

    Yes, #2 should go to the front cylinder. You may not realize there is a problem but you will probably notice a difference once you make the switch, especially at low RPM's.

    Well, I've put 500 miles on my bike and now just determined that I have switched coil wires. I even complained to the local Yamaha dealer about it the 1st week and mentioned the forum talking about this problem. They claimed that it was something that was fixed - all B.S.

    I took off the right side cover and found the wires switched. After swapping the coil wires, the bike ran great. No more backfiring! I then installed the Fi2000R Cobra digital fuel processor. The bike has never run better - runs better during all phases - I couldn't be happier.

    It's surprising that bike dealerships don't really understand this bike, nor it's issues when so many people have experienced the problem.

    I have a Blue Raider S, Model XV19CSXL. The wiring on my coils are as follows: Front coils - Green/Red wires and the spark plug cables goes to the front cyclinder or cylinder #2. Rear coils - Orange wires, spark plug cables goes to the rear cylinder or cylinder #1. As a note, I always thought that the front cylinder was the #1 cylinder. I have confirmed the wiring with the service manual (LIT-11616-21-26) for this particular Raider model. Hope this helps with your issue.
