    Hey, it's in General Mayhem. It's fair game. Them's the rools.

    Oh hell, OK.

    Be logical. Trace backwards. No spark in any cylinder and changed plugs? Where is the spark coming from? Make sure the wires are all attached properly to the coil (or coils - I have no idea how a Bandit is configured). Make sure the wiring from the sender on the crank to the coil is sound. Check that none of your safety nazi stuff is getting in the way - side-stand switch, neutral switch, clutch switch. If all that seems OK, suspect coil.

    If you've got power to the coils, but nothing coming out tried changing coils?

    JJ. Guessing.

    This could have been a thread about a bloke in a sombrero and a vasectomy.

    Depends. Is that a Sears poncho, or a real poncho?
