Well the pipepro does have it's advantages, but wait till it comes off warranty and blows a board, $1000 - $2000 a crack for 4 boards, if there is extensive damage, ie, a switch board goes, your suddenly looking at a $3000 repair bill. If the engine needs a rebuild, thats another $4000.
So an SA200 is not all that bad is it!
The SA200 in question has probably just lost a 12 volt supply to the board, or the soliniod on the side of the engine may be gummed up.
If by chance the board is whacked, simply replace the 2 little scrs on the board and away you go again.
