I had my bike fail to start in the middle of a 250 miles desert ride. It was running great right up to a gas stop. Filled up the tank, drank some water and when we saddled up to go, the bike would not start. It's normally a one kick starter. A little troubleshooting showed no spark. I've started looking at it at home and the stator and the crank pickup look good. That narrows it down to the CDI or the ignition coil. Other than ohm checks is there any other way to check the coil? Does the wire from the coil to the plug ever go bad? I guess that I should check the the wiring before buying anything.
