I must admit I've never checked, but that does not sound right, then again I don't know exactly how the internal electronics in the ECU are laid out and if one thing can affect another.

How long this takes to happen I have no idea. I can't think of an easy way to test the earth, but like I said I would have a good look along the loom, as it may only short while you're sat on and riding the bike.

Ecu is on itīs way. I tried wiggling the cable around while measuring but seems ok to me no short to earth that I can find. Not sure how to test it with my multimeter to see if it gives continous earth to coil while running.

If I put in a new coil stick and the ecu is effed will it melt instantly or whats the norm?

The wire from connector to ecu checks out ok. Guess that means ecu buying time. Thanks for the tip ninjayorkie.

Cheers dastardly!

Cleaned up connections and now there is a healthy 12v at the coil connectors. Number one stick coil melted so a new one is on itīs way.
