here´s the new hotel.

the picture makes it seem kinda nice. at first, i thought it was an abandoned building. heck, the taxicab driver thought it was abandoned. a little yelling got the lady to come out of hiding though.

i figured i´d need a telephone to call boxerworks and get them to send me parts. i asked the lady at the hotel if they had a phone. the answer before i payed for the room was ´si´. the answer after i payed for the room was ´no´. poop!

my room

the ignition system has 3 parts-the coil, the icm, and the trigger.

i got a fancy new dyna coil before i left so i didn´t think that was the problem. the icm is pretty tough and doesn´t seem to fail often. i figured it was the trigger, better known as the bean can.

nathan at boxerworks strongly urged me to take a spare but i wanted to wait for a fancy new all electronic system to come out before i spent $250 on a spare old system. so no spares.
