So I'm very sad. I had just gotten the entire peddle assembly replaced on my Frankenbike, and accidentally jimmied the sparkplug boot. Took it off to re-seat it, and the guts of the boot just fell right out (actually, pushed out by the spring inside). This disappointed me, as I have no replacement, but I figured I'd just slide the wire (which has a copper core) over the spark plug tip (which was a perfect fit). I thought it was working fine, as the bike started right up, but it appears that the CDI didn't much like this, because about two miles down the road I lost all power. I tried a couple hill-assisted starts, and amazingly, i managed to get spark, but only above 25mph. Found out the hard way that engine RPMs had to stay high, otherwise, no fire, engine stall, and Mo' Peddling. I'm guessing heat conducted into the CDI through the wire, and destroyed something, I can't imagine what. So now I have a Mo' Peddle, and a CDI that the multimeter confirms is shot. I still have a week worth of work to go to, and an 8 mile bike ride to get there. Anyone have any dirty hacks for getting spark? I have no SCRs, and the only HV transformers I can get my hands on are the kind that sit on the circuit boards inside CRT and LCD monitors. I'm handy putting circuits together, but maybe not so much on designing them. Also, I'm lazy as heck and don't like peddling 16 miles a day. PLEASE HELP!
