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.
Hang in there buddy, my DR800 had the same problem a couple of years back too. No spark, no matter what.

Ended up changing the CDI, Stator coil, and starter engine and for good measure, I change the wire harness as well.

After that the bike was ok for several months until the fuel pump busted.

The bike was in the shop for nearly 1/2 a year....
Motorcyclists are the nicest people on the road, try not to kill us.
