Labor of love my friend!

Now you can spend more with porting, etc and use some of those jets you bought. :D

Unfortunately you are accumulating what we call experience.  The expensive lessons are keenly remembered.    Remember the minute details of the symptoms to the problem you were experiencing.  Electrical, reeds and jetting problems can cause miss fires but the symptoms are slightly different.  The small details of the symptoms are what guides the more experienced mechanics whether to pursue the intake, fuel, or electrical system.

Using a cheap volt/ ohm meter on the stator and coil would have prevented the purchase of the electrical components.  Harbor freight is always giving these cheap digital volt/ohm meters away if you purchase anything. 

Somewhere on this site I have given the difference in the symptoms when these three components are responsible for a miss fire as well as how to build a peak voltage tester to use with a digital volt/ohm meter.  The cost of the electrical components needed to build this peak voltage circuit is under $5.00.  Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha etc. sells a peak voltage tester to their dealers that use to be well over a hundred dollars. 

With one of these peak voltage testers, I have been able to diagnose which component has failed on any off road engine that I have ever encountered that has a CDI ignition.
