Question about Yamaha XS 650 C Motorcycles
Im not getting fire from my coil
Do you have a manual? If you do can you send me a copy of the correct schematic for your bike. It will me help you if you can scan a copy in to send me. If you don't already have a basic voltmeter that measures resistance. You should pick one up at either WalMart or even better Harbor Freight has the best deal $4-$9 there. What year is your bike? You can start off by isolating the kill
switches from the coil by unplugging the coil lead headed towards
on/off switch and other safety switches. The idea here is to make sure you don't have a bad switch by disconnecting all kill switches to test for spark. If still no spark does the bike have cdi box or points fire ignition. CDI is capacitor discharge ignition often refered to as the black box. Points are mechanical switches that open and close riding on the crankshaft.
Please send year of bike so I can better assist you.
