While first is the coil switch. If that works it's the coil or plug cap.

If it's the carbs then spraying starting fluid or a similar combustible in an idling bikes air box will eliminate the carb problem if the engine rushes.



If it's not the coil or the carb it could be the right side insides of the cdi. The ignitech is one hell of a device and I like mine.
