and email response:

"No extra parts nesessary, there is enough extra wire to use on the stock Jetboil, you just need to take the base apart, and carefully cut back the insulation leaving a slightly longer than normal ammount of exposed wire, push the wire up through the holder and clip to the same length as before, then Bend it like it was originally and test. you can always alter the location for the best spark, I remember doing a little fiddling till it sparked first time every try.

This should work up to 4 more times (seems to be enough wire to do so) since the wire is in an S bend allready.

The cause I found was in using the jetboil for long durations (forgetting to turn off the jetboil after water was boiled, or boiling multiple items)

Once you do this repair you will quickly realize just how handy the tip is.

My jetboil is still firing up like it was new after a solid year of use! Hopefully yours will do the same. My post should have had some detailed photos to illustrate the process (it may have gotten deleted or changed by the administrator) but this DIY repair isn't hard to do.
Best of Luck!"

Thanks,

"There should be enough wire left to repair around 4 more times before >>>buying one of the replacement piezo starters that the company also provides!<<< ."

- So this piezo starter - Do You know maybe if its available somewhere? I cant find it on the JetBoil page.

The original piezo should last 4-6 years, estimated on how hard you use and abuse your stove, but their website has replacement piezo starters, according to the guy who provided this info. I didn't see it on the website, but I'm assuming if you contact their customer service, maybe you can special order?
