Question about Motorcycles
Hi check if there's power going to the coils first after this you need to test the pick up coils spin the engine over and use a multimeter set to A/C volts you should get a small reading on each one while cranking. If not replace. If they are ok you probably need a CDI unit. Hope this helps.

yes, you are correct, those are the two pieces that could solve your problem, but i would go first for your cdi, you may choose to have it tested first also, before you jump out to buy a new one.

Take one of the plugs out and hold it against the head while the engine cranks. You should get decent spark. If not, you have an ignition problem. If it gets decent spark, try spraying some starting fluid into the air cleaner box. If the engine starts up and runs for a couple seconds, you have a fuel delivery problem.

sounds as if you have an issue with the charging system, try using a volt meter to determine if the bike is charging. To do so you will need to access the battery under the seat, with the bike running hook up the volt meter to the battery terminals, at idle you should have around 11volts when reving you should have around 13volts. If not you may have a bad stator or other electrical issues. good luck

Before you spend any money on it make sure the motor will turn over. Take out the spark plugs, put the bike in gear and see if it will roll. If the motor is frozen it will have to be rebuilt and unless you can do that yourself it will cost you more than the bike is worth to have it done.
