    Hey guys,well I'm having a magneto coil issue.My brothers bike keeps going through magneto coils,the magneto goes out then we replacenit with a new then the bike starts up fine then and runs for a few days then the coil goes out agin,and so on and so on,we replaced the magneto ciol 3 times in a month,whats the deal? I thought maybe the cdi was frying out the magneto so we bought a new cdi and still the coil goes out.what else could make the magneto coil keep going out?.Thanks guys for your help.Randy..... oh yeah I also replaced the spark plug aswell.

    Doooood... there's something wrong that keeps making them short out!!!
    Disconect the kill switch & check that the blue wire isn't shorting out anywhere!
    You shoud have blue to blue, black to black, & make sure the white wire isn't grounding either... ;)

    There are many stories of the kill switches shorting out the coils!!! I really don't like hooking them up on my bikes.

    Remember to check if any wires are shorting out!
