ok installed new kickstand switch. No Joy. still no spark. Battery next I reckon. Then if still dead I'll have to spend the big bucks on a cdi.


New Ignition Switch
New side stand switch
New spark plug


Took kill switch apart visual check looked clean no corrosion sprayed with electric cleaning solvent.


Must pull clutch lever for starter to engage
If kill switch in "off" mode engine does not turn over


Clutch lever pulled in, kill switch "on". Side stand up. Engine spinning, No spark.


Maybe I should order a side stand relay?

By pass the side stand switch with a jumper wire & see if you got spark than......Save buying a relay for nothing.

Have you gone through all the steps in the flow chart I posted earlier? I attached the pages for testing the pick up coils.

yes I have a peak voltage adapter. I'm reading 3.5V I think. its consistant on both points. The stator is not grounded. The coils are within the resistance value but they are getting power yet no spark.

Ok. Do you have a digital mulitimeter?
Disconnect ign coil.
Ohm low range between the two connectors that go to the harness.
Should be less than an ohm IIRC
Ohm between either of those two and the disconnected spark plug wire.
Should be 1 or more K ohm.

Now switch your DMM to a high ohm range.
Measure engine case to tip of spark plug (no coil) and no fingers touching.
Should read nothing.
