I have electrical gremlins in my bike :mad:
My least favorite problem! I hate routing around searching for electrical problems!
Sometimes when i turn my lights on the bike cuts out, as in shorts out the whole bikes electrics :(

First symptoms was irregular dropping in revs and splutter, cough missing was the order of the day. One...
Having fixed my tyre and got back on the road i was feeling quite smug until the bike cut out whilst pulling away from the lights last night!
