Change the 10A fuse anyway, it may look OK but could have a hairline crack in the fusable link.
I can't think what else to suggest. You could try running a new wire from the battery +ve to somewhere up front that's normally always live just to eliminate any breaks in the main loom. I'd guess it goes to the ignition switch, and from there to the various circuits....have you checked the voltage at the feed IN to the switch and OUT of the switch? could be the ignition switch terminals burned?

My last resort, ill threaten my CG  with a flying lesson! iv been advised by my dad to bin it. as one day on way to work ( at mo iam signed off work due to stress related problems and Cg doesn't help me ) the Cg mite clong out when i relay need it for work. or mite die on my test when a slot become free. So sell and buy another CG or small 125 or buy Piaggio x9 125 ( not like sh**y one i had last time with duff sator generator and transmission  and looks like its been stode in a river with all the rusty bolts )

Well if you do, look at as many as you can, don't buy the first you see. Better missing a sale than buying a dog!
You'd probably be better sticking with the geared option now you've almost completed the test modules.

almost completed ? still got a pass MOD 1 yet even if i take my test on an Auto and want manual later in life, i found out i wont need to retake my CBT or theory, my Full auto license will allow me to just retake the test but manual. with nothing els needed as i believe.

Wont i miss about a X9. well it makes the Cg look stone age. Life with out a fuel gauge ( sounds stupid i know ) but i totally miss it. I miss the relax ride of auto, i miss been able to put my feet up on the long footbords, I miss the road presence, the CG doesn't have. I defently miss the X9 lights, you don't know how good the X9 lights are until you ride a 80s CG, even the X9 35w stand factory fitted bulbs are better than the 25w or 35w Cg globe bulb. the X9 gives a spreed across the lane of light,  the Cg justs give you a spot light kinda view.

I miss the X9s 75mph speed where the Cg struggles to get 60mph. you don't apriciate the X9 till you ride something like a CG

There are loads of CGs out there so as Dave says, take a look at a few. The module 1 is meant to much, much harder on an auto.

Tried to explain the same thing to some guys on my local forum - forget about engine (there are smoother and stronger), but lights, brakes, road presence, luggage space, seat and seating position, board computer, weather protection... great, great and great. And not expensive also... Amazing bike.

You can't keep the gearing low enough to go fast enough for the speed trap part of the test.

From memory the CG has a direct lighting system, on a lot of light weight bikes there was a resistor that was designed to take the excess power when the lights were not in use and if an headlight blew, that was usually mounted near the headstock and will have a single wire going to it.

Do please try to keep up. The post you have just replied to is FIVE years old. Even Solo won't be able to remember having the bike.

Useful to know about the resistor in case the same thing ever comes up again. It never was solved originally.
