I started the bike a couple times a week throughout the spring, No problem. Loaded in trailer for a break-in ride, motor cranks but won't start. I returned home and pulled the plug and installed new one. No spark, so checked all wiring connection and all is good. I checked the ignition coil, pick-up coil and AC generator and all resistance values fall in the correct range. This has happened several times, bike will start and run great at home, but won't fire later. On this past Sat. bike ran great for app. 3 miles then shut off and would not restart. Loaded up and went home, no spark. The next morning with bike not being touched and still in trailer it started on the first push of the button. After checking and rechecking the wiring and all connections, the only thing I can't check, or so I am told, is the CDI. I am going to ask the dealer for a CDI replacement and try it this weekend. What am I overlooking? This is killing me that I have a new bike and can't ride.
