They're still not able to get it to spark.
The generator was re-wound but no change. Next they suggested we change the cdi, I found one in Germany which is now fitted but still no joy.
I'm too scared to ask how many hours they're going to charge me for this. When I popped in on Saturday there were 5 of them crowded around the bike with electrical gizmo's trying to work it out.
I don't know if I can take any more of this.
do you have the manual for the bike? it goes through how to test each component quite thoroughly. test each component individually as per the book then start looking at how the system works as a whole. there are a few tricks with the big that several things need to be correct before it will start.
or you could skip town and never return
