Got a problem maybe someone can figure this one out?

I have no spark. I check all the safety switches and they all work. so I bought a new CDI put it in and it work, went to start it this morning and nothing again. I check all the power and then check the rectifier it's saying that I should have 700 to 15,000 ohms and when I tested the rectifier it read 22,170 ohms would this keep the bike from starting? has anyone had this problem.

I've had mine not start a couple of times. I wiggled the kill switch and it started. I'm not sure if that was the problem, but it did start.

Yes, too much resistance at the rectifier = Bad is not charging the battery, or powering the ignition :applause:
