Just practicing.

Well after getting the bike ready race day was a big let down.

Bike started ok for practice. Did a few laps getting a feel for the new right hand side footrest and brake. The left hand footrest came loose but that just needed nipping up.

When I came in from practice the bike went into neutral OK but the engine stalled, or so I thought.....

When it came to race one the bike refused to start, investigation revealed no spark further investigation revealed the coil had gone bad. Ironically on a bike made of parts mostly between 30 and 60 years old a modern component failed and stopped it from working.

My solution? I'm ditching the electronic ignition and replacing it with magneto from BTH.
