  1. It was the CDI internals that loosened up. The pins inside the glue case had loosened from the glue causing intermittent and poor contact and or connection. So a new CDI, and now usually first kick and it's trick to go.Thanks to the board for all your input
  2. Just an update. I put in my other cdi and managed to get it started. It ran pig rich then quit. Then no spark. I think the plug is fouled. I am not seeing any signs of wire deterioration anywhere. I'll get some plugs today and try again.
  3. I will let you guys know how I make out.
  4. The bike was not running when I got it. It will be running at some point.
  5. I have aquired a 1987 xl 600 r with 6000 miles on it. I have replaced the stator with a Ricky stator, purchased a new pulse generator and a known good cdi. I have no spark. I have tested the ignition switch, the pulse generator,coil and the on off switch. The coil was a few hundred ohms down but I don't see that as limiting all spark. There is a new battery and the lighting coil is working. Evidently I am missing something. The factory wiring is all intact so I don't suspect a short and have been searching just in case. Would anyone like to add to this quagmire? I want to rip. P.S My service mech. started me with the pulse generator. "The harder you fall, the faster you learn"
