    Yeah, It just had me baffled that the pickup coil went as soon as I replaced the manifold and rebuilt the carb. Usually its something you just touched......

    Cool! Glad to here she's running again.
    Thanks for letting us know the problem. It helps others to trouble shoot their problems.

    Update, it took a while to get the pickup coil but she is finally running again. While we had it apart I put the ebc clutch spring in, what a difference! The hardest part was, it appears the pickup coil was done before, the screws holding the cable stay in the clutch cover. They were red lock tited on and had to be heated to remove. Other than that it went semi smoothly.

    Thank you, The OHM test shows it as bad. I will order it and see how it goes. Since the clutch cover is off I guess Ill swap the Diaphram spring out of the clutch too.

    Yes, they are replaceable.
    The pick up coil is located and mounted on the inside of the clutch cover. Not often, but they have been known to go bad.

    The pickup coil is testing bad. Is that a part replaceable by itself or is part of the stator? Thanks for the help guys!

    I think this is the guy that found a broken wire near the ignition box.

    Is this a stock bike or are you building something?

    See post 15.1 above to save time.
    No need to remove the spark plug from the engine.

    You do not need to remove spark plugs from the engine to see if they have spark.

    Just attach a timing light to the plug wire and look at the timing light.
    If there is not timing light flash then it is not firing. Saves time.

    don't hold the screwdriver against the head, if it is touching the head it won't spark. It has to have a small gap between the screwdriver and the head

    Tried the screwdriver trick no spark. Looked at the plug while cranking, no spark while holding against the head. I printed out the service manual electrical section and am going to start trouble shooting. Before I do that I’ll check voltage again on the battery. It was 13.8 on the trickle charger and 11.5 or so while cranking. The bike was used very little from the previous owner. 300 miles in 6 years so it did a lot of Idling in the garage

    put a Phillips screwdriver inside the sparkplug cap and hold it about 1/16 inch away from the side of the engine and crank it to see if it sparks. Also did you do anything down by the left side clutch cover? There is a plug down there with wire coming out of the clutch cover that if you have a bad connection at that plug you won't get spark. also if you have braided throttle cables and they are laying across the coil under the tank it could be grounding out the coils.
    I also had a similar situation 1 time and I charged the battery and everything was OK. It had enough voltage to crank the engine but not enough to crank and start(spark) the electronic ignition has a required min voltage to make things happen. I'm not sure what that magic voltage number is but there is a number.

    Did you look for spark on the electrodes before installing them?

    I cleaned the plugs and lightly sanded them, regapped and reinstalled. No luck. I ordered new ones, they are cheap enough just to rule it out.

    You might get away with doing just the 2 outside plugs that are easy to get to. If it starts just doing the 2 outside plugs the other 2 should clean themselves as it runs and warms up. That will just keep you from removing the tank. If you don't mind removing the tank, by all means clean all 4 plugs.

    Ok, I will get the plugs out and try that. I will keep everyone updated and thank you for the information.
