I removed the ignition coil to check on the throttle stop screw on my 2000 WR400. Looks like the prev owner already did the mod. Excellent! A few days later...
Not so excellent- I looked down after a short test ride for my Yoshimura RS3 spark arrester mod I just did to see something smoking. I had forgotten to bolt the coil back on and its outer casing was being burned on the pipe. DOH! I immediately when to grab it, and when I did, I saw a spark against the pipe. It killed the bike immediately.
The bike fired up fine once I put some elec tape around the burned spot and bolted it back on with the ground. Next I noticed I had no lights. I was concerned that this might have done some damage.
The bulbs are fine.
UPDATE: I don't know how it happened, I just hit the headlights "off" switch. I think I'm gonna remove that when I update my lighting... duh.
