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.
As Simosez suggests, go step by step - the schemes are in the manual, check the fuses thoroughly, check the cabling and contacts (especially ground) thoroughly, check the sparks, coils, high voltage cables, ignition key, ignition shut down button, clutch indicator (must be shortened), side stand indicator (must be shortened).
There have been a number of people with similar problems lately, remind me - it turns but theres no spark?
