Hi, Heinrich the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, then there is eBay where you may be able to find what you need at a very high price because of its age and rarity. Most of the "FREE" manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. To download your manual please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose, check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil, pick up coil, trigger coil or CDI box testing needs to be checked with an ohmmeter at 70 degrees Fahrenheit
7. Faulty safety switches clutch, kickstand, neutral, off/on etc.
8. Faulty ignition switch.

Look behind your taco there is a usualy a black colored cable about the size of a cigarette. Unscrew it. Its a rotating inner shield with an outer protective shield. Verify if the rod is still present and then start your engine. If the rod is spinning you need a taco. If not follow the cable. Its plugged on top of your valve cover. Unplug it from your engine start it again and verify if its rotating. If yes then you need a new inner cable. If not you should take it to a restauration shop cuz they will need to remove the valve cover to see whats going on.

if you not getting compression you might have to replace the piston rings which means a top end rebuild

Hi I dont have the exact resistances for the pick ups but a kawa around the same era is 400-500 ohms and I suspect the xj shoud be similar.
It is unlikely both pick ups have failed, but they will both need similar resistances to each other, and infinate resistance to ground.
You can somtimes check by touching a screwdriver to them to set off a spark, but as you have no spark to either coil , this wont help in your case.
It sounds like a power supply problem as they both dont work. Check the throttle kill switch, and the ignition switch. When the key is turned off, it switches a wire to ground the same as a kill switch, to stop the motor, so it may have an internal problem

could have an air leak in the carb boots or bad air fuel mixture. check the spark plugs, if they're black system is too rich. if they're white, they're lean. either have an air leak going to the cars or just need adjusting. also inspect your air filter.

Try replacing the starter solenoid.

Yes and yes. Check the main fuse if nothing comes on, ie lights, horn, etc. Do not jump start a motorcycle with the truck running. This can overload the system really easily.
