Thats my take as well. But as an oldguy its the new electronics , the addition of lots of electrical that seem to be letting me down these days. Stuff just stops working no warning it just stops. So far its usualy just some safety switch for neutral protection with a bad connection or a china made BW solinoid that dont disconect leaving the starter to just carry on ( battery disconect switch is cool ). I call em soft parts even when I hammer my finger putting them in. The base iron engine has always given me a sign and got me home.

I can fix alot of stuff with a good selection of tools and epoxy. Parts can be tough to stock on board.

Fun stuff.
