Default Re: BSA Wont Start - No Power after backfire

Hey Loffer, thanks for the reply. It is a positive ground. Everything on the bike is stock.

Do you know of any common areas where a short could be occuring?

The thing that is most interesting is that the ammeter on the headlight gets pinned to the negative when I give the bike power. Makes me think that the current is flowing through the system in the wrong direction. I've heard of the zener diode going bad and reversing polarity.

I think I am going to order one of the Tympanium regulator/rectifiers and see if that makes a difference.
