went out for a ride on last friday. bike going well, no problems for ages, suddenly it died on me, thought it was petrol as i new it was close to the reserve point, nope. would not start, checked carb, jets, all clear. totally dead. seems to be no spark but could no see one, pushed. and free wheeled all the way home 5 miles. phew!
next day checked a few things, fitted a new cdi unit with the built in coil, which i have had for a while unused. removed the 4 volt coil and it,s wiring, no longer needed. wired it up according to jawa manual. and still totally dead. ordered a plug lead tester to check if getting any current, hard to do single handed the old fashioned way, my close vision not good these days.
i think i will need a jawa moped electrician, none in my city, i think it is beyond me, i may need a new stator or sender coil, although jawa says these stators are bomb proof and never need touching. no broken wires all screws tight on the stator, where do i go from here?? mechanical things i can do, but electrics are a nightmare. checked a few things with a multi meter. and they are also confusing to use. to many variables. paul
