craigacc Posted January 4, 2020 Report Share Posted January 4, 2020 Hi all,I have a 1975 M66 Ural which is nearing the end of a restoration. The ignition switch gets very hot on the 'points' which join together when the key is pushed in. I've an inline fuse by the battery on the positive lead. Low amperage fuses blow immediately you push the inition key in, the ignition switch gets got at the 'points' when using a higher amperage fuseOtherwise the lights etc all work OK, though not tested the spark at the plugs yet (was all OK when the bike was stripped)I know the generator is suspect, but disconnecting it does not stop the ignition switch getting hotIt has a brand new regulator/rectifier fittedOther aspects of the wiring have all been refurbished and proper modern connectors fitted. The ignition switch is original, but cleaned up and wiring connections refreshed. So current is 'leaking' into a short circuit somewhere. Any ideas? Many thanks. Craig.
