Gents,

I'm in a bit of a pickle.

My S1-c keeps sparking on all but the RH cylinder (so blue wire).
I checked ohms and I seem to have no breakage in the upperpart of the loom (coil).
RH breaker point keeps having earth.
Changed new condenser and have rewired (partly) from alternator-side.  No result.

Any advise?

Thanks

What heppens if you short across the (open) points for that cylinder with a screwdriver (Ignition turned on of course).

Sparks..
A: at the points?
B: at the Plug?
C: Neither?

OK then you will need either a Multimeter, or a bulb with wires.

Put some paper in the all the Points to keep them open, then..
With Ignition ON:

You should have 12V on both terminals (Yellow & Blue) of the Coil under the tank.
Under the Side Panel you should have 12V on the Blue wire in the BIG oblong connector.
Then you Should have 12V on the Open side of the Points.

Wolfie: you are THE MAN!

Under a screw and isolatingtape the blue wire was b**ed at the points.
Soldered a new end to it and now I have the bluest of spark  Mr. Green
On to the next chapter: timing

Cheers!

I had one come for sorting out last year with drops on, fkin awful to ride.. Within the first two miles, my arms and back were killing, the thing had a mind of it's own and wandered all over.

I turned the things round to point upwards and transformed it..

Your already looks so much nicer just with the muck cleaned off.

Yesterday I tried it... tank greatly supported the belly!  Laughing

Any of you guys know whether it's possible to remove RH carter without removing the complete leads to the oilpump?
Carter has a small crack below and is losing some oil, a small alu-weld will most probably do the trick.
