Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Yesterday lost spark to my plug so off to work I go this afternoon......this is a magneto thats only about 2 weeks old and it is the third one Ive had die on me. I read on here and have been advised by those on here more experienced than I that the solders on the ground coming from the center of the coil on the magneto have a serious issue with being since ive done the whole replacement thing and that has now shown to be lacking I broke out my solder gun and melted the solder off the wire to clean it.....what I found was that it wasnt debris blocking the was the wire actually broke.....I guess that it only worked for a while because it was still partially attached but vibration and heat made it break.....anyhow obviously I have the thing though its only on about 1/16" of the wire that was was an interesting soldering had to make a solder mound to reach the sparse Im back to running for now
