Unlucky FR but good save given everything else around it at the time.

Good luck sorting it  :thumb:
It amazes me this day and age how some people just don't know Jack Schitt…:-)

Jack Schitt is the Son of Awe Schitt and O. Schitt. 
Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt, having six kids, Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt. 
15 years later, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt married Ted Sherlock, and as her kids were living with them she kept her name. She was then known as Noe Schitt-Sherlock!

I have stripped the bike today. If there is such a thing as being lucky when your bike bursts into flames, this is it. Other than the obvious plastic damage, undertray, hugger, one side panel and the tail piece, there is no other damage. The subframe is unmarked and the loom is also untouched. I have all of the parts except one side panel (which I have just seen on eBay for £20).

There is a hotspot on the exhaust, so maybe a blockage. I am going to replace the ignition coil for that side and also replace the silencer (thanks CJ) and see how we go.

I don't know how you find the time to do all this  :smirk:
I still suspect it's the revenge of the spider woman.
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

Pffft people who sell stickers.........  :shy:

Anyway, it looks like a V-Strom Sticker bowl of Welsh Blancmange to Tall Paul for calling a bad coil  :thumb:

For anyone interested, the resistance across the primary windings should be between 2 and 5 ohms and across the secondary should be between 24k and 37k ohms.

As you can see, the primary is in spec. the secondary isn't. I measured the other coil on the bike and it is in spec.
Rather than pull a twenty year old coil from CJ, I have ordered a new one. While the tank was off, I dropped a new air filter in too.

To be happy, I don't need private helicopters,a Florida house or a yacht. I'm fine with my motorcycle,a trip to a forest in Bavaria and some lunch money.

Seriously, though, how many of us have fire extinguishers in our garages / bike sheds? Not me, foolishly.
