Hello all! I am brand new to this forum so please excuse any informalities. I decided to give this a try as I am out of ideas for my bike. I have a 1974 Kawasaki G5 100 that I am trying to get up and running. I have a serious issue though that is stumping me. The magneto on this bike has a couple different wires running out of it that are used to power the ignition coil, charge the battery, lights, horn, etc. Looking at wiring diagrams and shop manuals I have determined that the solid black wire is the one that powers the ignition coil. To eliminate any unseen problems, I have unhooked all kill switches. Essentially, I have the black wire going straight from the magneto to the coil. Now here is the interesting part. The black wire produces spark by itself; that is I have hooked a 12v light up to the black wire off of the magneto and it lights it up. I have also touched the black wire to the bike chassis and it sparks/crackles. However, when I hook the black magneto wire up to the coil, I get zero spark through the spark plug. I have tried three different coils and three different spark plugs all with the same result. I am just lost as to how the magneto wire can produce power when it is hooked up to a test light but not produce spark when it is hooked up to the coil. So I guess my question is what could be the issue and or are there any tests I can run to check the various components of the ignition system? I would like to add in that I have brand new contact breakers (points), a new condenser, and as I said a new coil and spark plug. There isn’t much to this bike and I guess that’s why its getting me so frustrated. If you guys have any tips, tricks, or suggestions I would be more than grateful. I appreciate the help!
