One cylinder went quiet

One day, I found that one the exhaust pipe from the center cylinder was cool after the engine was running. The other two cylinders were hot. Hmm?
I looked into it and did some troubleshooting. It thought the problem was in the CDI, which has three units, one for each cylinder. So I went about looking for a replacement. What I found is someone who rebuilds the innards of the CDI units. I decided to go that route and rebuild the entire CDI, because age seemed to be taking its toll on the electronics parts.
Photos and more details to follow.

15 Plate clutch

Its been awhile since I have updated...oops. I have been riding the Coy Toy some. One thing I noticed was that the clutch seemed to be slipping. Possibly due to the extra power. So I researched a little and found a 15 Plate clutch upgrade from Redline motorsports.
The kit is installed and the bike runs great!
