I declared too early of a victory when I pushed down on the coils and the Burgman stopped misfiring. 100 miles later it happened all over again.

Fine, time to get dirty.

I removed both coils. The one atfsgeoff replaced looks fine, so I’ll save it as a spare. The older coil on the right side has clearly lived a rougher life and was probably not operating the best.

New coils in, it ran better but they were so loose that I was sure I’d be back here soon enough, so out came the plugs, too.

Both plugs have damage where the coil packs grip. I’m sure this has something to do with why the coils can’t get any grip on them.

Fine, two new plugs and two new coils, hopefully this stops it from randomly losing a cylinder.

Update: Problem returned after only ten miles of riding. This time I jumped the FI connector and got a C25 code. C25 means coil 2.

Problem supposedly remains in the ignition system. Guess I’ll throw on the known good coil from before. If that continues to fail then I’m definitely looking at wires or something.
