Iíve never had a no spark problem before, but it seems like finding a needle in haystack 😂😂😂

@SoakedKarma,

Could you please elaborate to me on the open circuit, closed circuit, and grounded circuit on the schematic? Act like youíre talking to a five year old, I know zilch about electrical problem solving!

When I am checking these parts with the multimeter, how am I supposed to know which one is a low ohms grounded, low ohms open, or low ohms closed circuit?

touch meter probes to each other reading will be Low ohms/resistance
my meter shows 0.3Ω which is the resistance of probe wires..

holding meter probes in air not attached to anything my meter shows a flashing (indicating off scale) 10.00 MΩ or 10,000,000 Ohms (Ω) ~ High ohms/resistance

This video is good explaining measuring resistance and operation of digital meter

Soaked,

Thanks so much, I will watch the video when I go on lunch in two hours! The only thing Iíve used the multimeter for so far has been checking continuity, having the different kinds of circuits explained to me would be of immense help, Iím sure that the video will be of great assistance!

So as far as the schematic goes, is the closed circuit and open and grounded circuit important? Do I just need to be grounding the negative lead on the frame and seeing if I get the same ohms for each pin on the cdi? Itís the grounded vs open vs closed thing that is confusing me, I understand the rest

Open and Closed circuits - switch is open/off, or switch is closed/on
Grounded means the negative terminal of the battery is connected to the frame, so that you can complete any circuit using the frame as the last wire back to the battery.

How would I go about checking the side stand switch and clutch switch to make sure they are working when theyíre supposed to. The clutch lever has two ďL shaped clipsĒ I guess I would call them, would I connect my multimeter there?
