Definitely not that. Did finally trace it to more of an issue with the green plug.

I use a small electrical type screwdriver with a bit of 500 grit wrapped around it and scrape off any and all corrosion in the female sides and on the spade connectors even if it doesn't look like there is any.Then blast with Carb/Brake cleaner and then with Switch/Contact cleaner.

Yeah...when I looked it looked fine. Tried the new ignition and worked fine. Went back and really looked close, there was barely anything there but cleaned anyway. Then worked. I am amazed at how little it took to do that, you could not see anything.

It can happen on all Electrical contacts.It's called/causes a little posted effect called,"Striation".In extreme cases like on the Block connectors on the Stator side of the R/R this can happen,




As the contacts begin to corrode and fail they increase the resistance at that point and this eventually causes the contact areas to heat up plus increases the resistance in the Circuit which stresses other components usually reducing their life and causing bad performance.

This is why one of the first things I do when I get a new 2nd hand motorcycle is to pull apart EVERY connector and do as I've said about cleaning and then treat them with special,"Super" service fluid called,"ACF50",

This is an anti-corrosion treatment developed for Aircraft but UK Bikers have been using it now for over 15 years to help prevent these problems.
