    'Overheating' solved.

    She conked out again this evening on the way home, I was in fairly heavy traffic, so a lot of fun,-NOT! I put my hand over the top of the engine, it really was not that hot, But the back of my hand nearly got burned on the coils, they were very hot, untouchable hot. So that serves me right for obtaining cheap Chinese coils. This time, when they cooled down they do not work.
    New coils required.

    I am Electrician and most Chinese Electrical goods are inferior and substandard. They copy European items then reduce the quality components inside them to reduce costs. A replica brake light switch for my 125 enduro melted after 1 trip out on the bike, it’s only a 6v system!

    To be fair, the Chinese bike industry has come on in leaps and bounds in the last few years. In the large retail park where I work, there is a department where I work from time to time when they are busy, that sells and maintains Lexmoto and UM's also Heralds, ok, the finish does not last long if they are not looked after, but mechanically, I am quite impressed. I have one myself that I commute on, it is 4 years old, So I do feel let down with the coils, it looks like the good copies are being ripped off by the usual unscrupulous crooks, caveat emptor !

    I have a pair of original coils from the remains of my LS. You are welcome to them for the price of the postage. Dont know if they work or not!
