Is it earthed ? the small wire on the coil must earth the bracket of the coil and an earth lead to the engine is needed

if you have spun it over without a plug in the cap or without an earth to the engine,pvl hates this and usually ruins the coil sorry.pvl does like to have about 800rpm to get a good spark aswell cheers Paul
