Coil or ???
Hey fellas! I have been trying to track down a problem with my ride for a few weeks now. It was and always has been a one kick bike. I rode it and it rode as well as it always has, but at the end of the run started acting a little tough to start, as in multiple kicks.
I got it back home and there she sits! I had a points style ignition in it and switched to a Dyna. I have been running that for a few years with no problems. I checked voltage to the coil and it is good. When I kick it over I am getting 10vdc signal from the ignition to the coil. The coil is firing (Accel Dualfire) however it is a weak (orange spark). I tested the coil and it is not reading the 4.7 ohms it is supposed to be according to Accel. I get 3.6. I have 4 other coils that I have borrowed from different folks to rule out a coil and they are all in the 3.0-3.6 range. They are all firing but again it is an Orange spark.
Compression is good, fuel is good, so fire is all that is left. I still feel that it is the coil, but the shop(s) I have had look at it (2) say that is not the problem.
The ignition switch is a manual switch as well, if that makes any difference, and I changed it out too. The other had play in it, and as I stated all voltage is good line side to the ignition and the coil.
Thanks for any and all input!
