    customer been in and out of here a lot last week or so

    bunch o' minor things that can make it run a bit weak (it's an old, filthy, bike that got no maintenance ever), but nothing that would strand him every so often as he reported

    finally got bad enough to be able to find it - seems CDI worked fine until something inside got hot & it quit - sometimes took 1/2 hour to quit - cooled down, it worked and ran fine on my CDI tester until I let it run on there for 6 or 7 minutes, then saw the spark slowly lose timing then die completely

    100 degrees in sun today, otherwise I might not have found it
