Re: What happened!
To die that suddenly it does sound like the wiring. Especially since that is what you touched last. Usually a fuel filter will have it fussing and sputtering for a bit before it dies. If it isn't the wiring then your CDI might be suspect. If you can check to see if you have a spark.
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!
I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
