The Zener diode failed today, while I was strobe timing the bike, causing a short circuit. I checked this by isolating the Zener, which is probably the original. I now have to think of either fitting a new Zener or fitting a system that dispenses with the Zener. I have a standard Lucas two wire alternator. What would be the best way to go from here? Advice would be gratefully received!
