When I had that last year it was my IC ignitor.

When it started to fail it would sometimes work and sometimes not.
Twice I got it to work after spending all day doing things (cleaning
carbs, etc) but it wouldn't work the next morning. In retrospect it
was probably a warm-up thing for the ignitor.
Anyway, testing is easy -- take one off a good bike and if it doesn't
solve the problem instantly, it wasn't that.
