MAINTENENCE--ELECTRICAL
3.
Operational Inspection of
the
Ignition System
(without the pick-up coil)
-H
ave
a DC
voltage source of
6-12
volts
output
such as
a
motorcycle battery.
-Pu
ll
off the
right
side
cover, and
disconnect
the smaller
6-pin connector
which
connects
the
IC
igniter and the
pick-up
coils.
-Remove
the fuel tank, and
pull
the spark
plug
caps
off
the
spark
plugs.
-Connect the
spark plug
leads to the
Electrotester
in
the same way
as
for
measuring
the
arcing
distance.
For
th
is
test, the Electrotester need not be supplied
with
electric power.
-Sl
ide the
adjusting knob
to
set
the
arcing distance
to
5-8 mm
.
-In
the
smaller 6-pin
connector from the
IC igniter,
connect
the DC voltage source positive
(+) lead to
the
black lead
and
the negative
(-
)
lead
to the
blue
lead
for
the
#1 and
#fJ
ignition coil [voltage source
positive
(+)
lead to the yellow lead and the negative
(-) lead to
the
red lead
for
the
#2
and #5 ignition coil, and voltage
source positive
(+)
lead
to
t/Je light green
lead and
negative
(-)
lead
to
the green lead
for #3 and
#4
ignition coil].
-Turn
the ignition switch
to
the
ON position
,
and switch
the
DC
voltage
source on and off.
-As
the DC
voltage
source
is switched, sparks should
jump across
the needles
in the
Electrotester.
Operational Inspection of the Ignition System
4. Pick-up Coil Inspection
-Connect the
multimeter
to
the pick-up
coil leads
to
measure
the coil resistance as
shown in
the table.
-I
f there
is
more resistance than shown in the table,
the coil
has
an
open
lead
and
must be
replaced.
Much
less than this
resistance
means
the coil is shorted,
and must
be
replaced.
-Using the highest resistance
range
of the
multime
ter,
measure
the
resistance between the pick-up
coil leads
and chassis
ground
.
Any meter
reading less than
infinity
(00)
indicates a short,
necessitating
replace-
ment
of the
pick-up
coil
assembly.
