you are wasting your time measuring anything when you kick unless you have another bike to compare it to sitting right next to you. Take it to a dealer. It cost me 50 bucks to have mine fixed.

Am I wrong?

take it to a shop

I've tested all wires direct from the the magneto while kicking with a multimeter but none of them show any voltage output. Does anyone have any further ideas? I've been working on several problems with my bike for about a month now and I just want to get up-an-running
Ok, first off it is true that a Digital Volt Meter does display RMS voltage which is kind of an average. It is actually a percentage of the peak to peak voltage that is being created. But, if the votlage is generated quickly and then dissapated quickly, most DVM's are not going to register the voltage. You need to use an Analog meter, or get a DVM that has a min/max setting so that it can capture the minimum or maximum voltage levels. The display will not update fast enough to see voltages when you are kicking it. As for what voltage you should have where, you should be able to find all of that information in your Yamaha Shop Manual that came with the bike. Hope this helps,

I've been away for the past week and have not had chance to test further yet.
I will look in the manual again to see if it makes any more sense to me

I have carried-out all resistance tests as per the manual. The Ignition coil inspection (Orange lead black lead) gave me an output of 0.00 which is out of the range 0.20~0.30. My multimeter has possible settings of 200, 2000, 20K, 200K and 2000K. 20K is the position that I used while testing as this seemed like the logical setting.
Can you guys confirm that I am doing this correctly and that my coil is faulty based on the 0.00 reading
All other tests results were within the specified ranges.

As the range is between 0.20~0.30 I guess this is out of range?
Does this confirm that the coil is faulty

How do I confirm that the CDI is at fault. I do not have access to another one to test.
