I have found that troubleshooting an electrical problem is best left to someone that knows how to read an ohms meter...There are specs in the repair manuals that will give detailed instructions...If you can read an ohm meter and you have the patients to read the instructions in the manual you can save yourelf losts of time and money...Otherwise :cry:.....

check for a break in your stator. read the ohms on and if it gives resistance then its probably good. Check all your connectons. Coulld be the cdi box,but doubtful. Is youe ele. system modified at all?

don't make this more complicated than it needs to be...A+B=C. this is usually a simply problem like a loose connection. first check for power to the coil. then check the kill switch then check the ignition switch look for power use a test light or volt meter not "ohms" meter.
tell me what you find
