My 1999 Peg has lost its spark. Hoping someone out there may have a clue on what may be the problem.
What I can tell you is the bike has run faultless from 1999 to the present.
The loss off spark was instant with nil warning signs prior.
Have checked the easy stuff,side stand,kill switch,ignition switch , coil and HT Lead are new ,have run the meter across the 2 spark resistors values seem okay.
With the meter on volts DC Im getting a reading of 10.5 volts at the Ignition lead terminal located at the rear of the engine casing.
I see that the manufacturers spec is 12 volts 280 watts for the ignition system for this model bike.
Does anyone think the 10.5 volts I am recording will be an issue?
Have discovered that one 3 wire terminal block and one 2 wire terminal block coming out of the high voltage regulator shows signs if over heating and low level burn to the join.
Considering cutting and shutting all these wires and making the joints via solder.
Unfortuntaely I don't have a wiring schematic for this bike so I am unsure whether these predominantly yellow colored wires coming out of high voltage regulator would be the issue of no spark.
Hoping that the CDI unit which I believe cannot be tested due to the circuitry is okay, but if it gets down to it, does anyone have any advice about obtaining a CDI unit at a reasonable price other than genuine aprillia which are quite expensive.
If any members have experience with this bike and have experienced this problem themselves I'd appreciate any advice.
