    Hey Randy,

    From what I have been reading, you may need cable #5910 840 0405 and it does not show on parts list yet.

    Good Luck, Larry. HOS

    Maybe we need to scan Germany for a disgruntled tech. Leaks happen all the time...

    I haven't noticed an o2 sensor. Is there one hiding somewhere? Otherwise I'm not sure how it could compensate for changes unless its monitoring airflow.

    I'm thinking even if you could build a tuneable ecm it would just result in a heavier saw with a cobbled mess of wires and sensors. Even if somehow you could get it to interface with the existing stihl system some additional sensor inputs would probably be necessary. Maybe im wrong. I've been out of the efi game for awhile

    Coil.....what coil? The outside of the flywheel is a fan. Period.

    Inside is a generator.

    Trigger is a crank sensor.

    A mate of mine owned a motorcycle magazine in Australia. He had bought an old CZ 250 that he wanted to do a photo shoot out at the local motocross track with a newer bike. He had made all the arrangements and everybody was going to show up. - Then the night before he tried to fire up the CZ and it wouldn't even pop.

    He called me up (I used to write the tech articles for the magazine) and I went over and started working on the bike. Long story short, it didn't have a condenser on the ignition. I jumped over a fence into a car yard and removed a condenser out of a distributor on a VW engine. Wired it in and we got the bike started. He did the photo shoot on time and ended up with two articles, one on the bike test and another about the condenser.
