I run a BTH magneto on my triumph i just bought. It just died on my trip couple of days a go. Engine started to go bad and it died a couple of seconds later, i fired it up again for 2 seconds. Can´t get a spark from the plugs. I´m a newbie so please help me what i shall do? What can be the problem? :eek:

I run a battery and no charging system on that, i charge it after every run.

If the points are clean and the timing hasn't slipped, there's not much else you can do...sounds like the internal condenser may have gone south, or the windings may have developed a fault...Might need to send it off for a rebuild, or try replacing it with one of the newer electronic units.
Best of luck!
