The important thing is for riders to perform an inspection and to make corrections to the fuel distributor and piping.
Sparky spark between leads- not to ground - is possible for High Voltage (>100v) systems in a vacuum, Kilovolts are required to generate a spark in our atmosphere. Our ignition coils put out Kilovolts. The GS fuel injection connectors max out at 14v, it would take a short to ground while the injector was being fed volts to spark.
