We just got a new member from Britain with another no-start electrical problem.....  micrit431. 

I think Yamaha dealers should grease up all those connectors before they sell them!

In my books, this is exactly what love is... pure adventures together... no time to spare for beauty rests/sleeps  ;D

Crusty!  :P
Yes It didn't look so bad when I bought it but it was a commuter and hasn't been treated with too much love.

So spent yesterday and today (not all of it maybe eight hours max) stripping the old loom out and fitting the new one.
Now in the position that I am waiting for the replacement coil pack to arrive so I can see if I got it right  ;)

Totally forgot to update on this.
The bike runs well and the only issues I have is occasionally the bike acts like it has a battery issue then starts ten minutes later.
My bigger issue is the ABS light is still on I will start a new thread on that I think
