okay, its me again from austria.
still, my blue dr 800 has no spark and since i have another sr42 now, i checked pretty much everything and compared it between the running and the non running Bigīs.
one thing, that has slipt through my mind until now has been the ignition coil. or the ignition coils, because there are 2 of them and i had no spark on any spark plug. that made me believe that they canīt be the problem. until now. i worked through my workshop manual and when it came to test the ignition coils, i realized, that one of them is broken. but that is still wierd, cause i donīt get a spark on the other coil aswell. just a coincidence or is there a connection?

and on another topic, i hope i will leave the cold and snowy alps behind me this winter and ride south into tunisia. has anyone of you ever riden the dr on sand dunes?
