Hi Anonymous, this is a statement not a question, I need more information please tell me the year and model of your bike and exactly what your question is and can you be specific and include details like WHERE, WHEN, WHICH ONE, HOW MUCH, so I can correctly address your problem. Thank you and have nice day.

SOURCE: no spark

alrighty, I had the same issue with my bike. It took days of tracing the issue with a volt meter and I discovered an intermittent short that would "fry" my coi. This made the bike not start and when I replaced the coil, because I had removed the old coil and moved the wires the issue disappeared for a short time. It is known that SOMETIMES when the coil is mounted the two wiresthat go to the coil somhow get stretched. This over time cause an intermittent short and the coil is rendered "dead". The Fix: 1.get a replacement coil. need 6 inches of #18 wire 3. two aluminum wire splicers and two aluminum circle fittings for the coil posts. 4.take off the old coil. 5.cut back the wires that go to the coil about an inch. 6. using the aluminum splicers splice the wires making them about 3 inches longer. 7.splice in the aluminum circle fittings. 8.mount the new coil. 9. fire the bike up. Enjoy riding.
