Hi guys,
Ive seem to have a bit of a problem wit my baby.(04Rc51)
Took her out for a ride,a slow one.Came back home to get the leathers on for a hard ride out in the country.But getting back on it,only just getting up the road.The bike cut out.and wouldnt start.Pushed it back home,luckily only being really close to home.And checked my spark...NOt there.
Both plugs and both leads,...nothing.NO prior warnig or anything
Would it be a faulty ECU?How would I test it?
Anyone got any other suggestions?
Cheers

Highly doubt it's the ECU.. Sounds electrical though, so get your manual out and voltage tester and start checking shit.. It's probably something small (it always is..) it's just a matter of finding it. I'm new to the RC's so maybe one of the experienced RC guys will chime in with a common issue. Good luck.

Hi guys

Well firstly thanks all for the help guys.
Just to keep everyone posted on the progress of my baby.
Received the ignition pulse generator.And yea,wasnt the problem.Turns out I need a convertor unit.Which have bought one through Ebay.Man its hard to get parts for her.Specially seeing that theres only 5 in he whole of New Zealand.
But when that comes,ill let you know if its the progress Im hoping for.

Cheers

Glad to hear you've diagnosed the problem.

By the way, grab a tube of dielectric grease and put a dab on all your electrical connectors.
It really helps with moisture problems and corrosion prevention.
