Check for corrosion in the connector on the black box ecu, right side tail. Also check the frame...if it says honda replace with one that says suzuki...that's a typical problem in these situations.

thanks guys;

my bike has four(4) coils, but I am loosing spark overall, so i am assuming that wouldn't be the issue; the ignition box is on the left side of the subframe (you were close chuck!) and I will pull
the connector off and check for corrosion.......hopefully it's not bad; new oem part is 385 bucks from powersports pro........
i will also check the negative battery cable at the frame for loose ground.......but I can't do much here at work without tools;
I hope the fucker makes it home!

why does this shit happen right before a trip???

thanks

Yo Dave. I'd ask that question over at VFRDiscussion.com. There are some sharp guys that know lots about VFRs and would be willing to help. There's also a pretty extensive database on these sorts of things. You may be able to search it and find someone with a similar problem / solution.

Hope you get it sorted out before the trip!!!!

Yeah, I caught that one Chuck.....Yoo won funny mutha fukka!
Keep in mind, however, that a typical problem on your 'busa
is the strange phenomenon of disintegrating body pannels!

Well see I'm replacing those panels for some that say "honda" on them. For some reason, I think the honda panels are more acustom to getting rashed up all the time and are therefore better prepared.

I think you only caught half of the story...Chuck was just prepping the panels for DV8 to customize...
