"Low tension lead break at the reluctor (points) plate"
I've been bitten twice by this in the past 3 years. Yesterday it happened about 25 miles from anywhere in the wilds of eastern Oregon. Fortunately, I was able to make a field repair and ride the 300 plus miles back home. So much for the INOA rally.
I did a search and saw mention about putting foam rubber around the wires. Worth a try, but any reason one couldn't put a small bolt through the hole and connect the lead with a small ring or "U" connector? Are there rivets with bayonet connectors. Any better ideas of fixes?

I put #4-40x3/4" brass pan head screwsthrough the hole after removing the wire. After puttting a lock washer and brass nut, I solder the head of the screw to the circuit board trace. If properly done, they are a quality terminal that can be installed maintained. A very small quality 20g (fine strands) wire with a ring lug run through a piece of silicone electrical tubing , not heat shrink, finishes the job. fwiw... The wire only runs the base current of a small signal transistor and a fatter wire provides nothing further of significant technical value, and only makes it harder to install/remove for maintenance.
