there's no seperate supressor on these as its got individual coils and they each have a built in supressor

I'd suggeet removing all the spark plugs and check that they are the correct type and that they all show no signs of 'tracking' / burn marks down the white ceramic

check that the coil contacts inside each coil are also bright and clean

Also replace the spark plugs if any of them fail this checklist:

and there should be some small earth connections using small bolts for the wiring lom that secure little ring eyelets onto the engine

check that these are tight and clean as they are the earths for the ignition coils
