After the problems I had the other week with a totally fried battery.
I have now replaced the battery and the rec/reg (2nd hand off the bay)
Just been for a 5 minute ride, all was OK until I got home and the engine kept missing then would stall.
Any ideas please. :hmh:

Cheers

Dave

At the moment yes, just replaced the spark plug as well since I had a spare lying around.
I'll check the ignition coil late as the frame has just been powdercoated could it be screwing up the earth point there then?

But have you changed the plug CAP?

Mine had 3 caps on it in the 2 years I had it because of symptoms just like you describe.

The vibrations of the engine kills plug caps...
