Question about 2001 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
Actually it is a 1992
Is there no power to the coil or no spark???
Disconnect the wires from both ends of the coil. Use an ohm meter to test the resistance of the primary winding in the coils. Put the meter's function switch in OHMS, R X 1. Touch one meter lead to each of the small terminals on the coil. Your meter should read 2-3 ohms. If this is correct, connect the "HOT" wires (the pink ones I think) to the coil. On the other side, take a length of regular wire and strip the insulation from each end. Connect one end of this wire to the empty terminal of the coil. Put an extra set of spark plugs in the spark plug wires and ground them on the engine so that you can see them. Turn the ignition switch on, and MOMENTARILY touch the bare end of the jumper wire to the engine case. When you take the wire away from the engine case, the coil should fire and you should see a spark at the plugs. If no spark or the resistance reads other than between two and three ohms, the coil is bad. If the coil checks good, I'd suspect the pickup in the timer cavity on the right side of the engine.
Thank Steve for this
