VT500 DUMB coil question
This may sound dumb, but I've tried everything.
Tested a new set of coils, bike fired up right away with fully charged battery.
Turned it off and let it sit for 60 seconds.... now I don't even get a spark!!!
Are the front and back coil different?
Are the coils from and 83 different? the numbers match, but a little symbol on the back is different, the old ones had a symbol that looks like a circle with a — sign in it, the ones from the '83 have a symbol that also has a circle but has a / sign in it....don't know if that means anything.
Here's the dumb question does front coil fire (F-L F-R) and rear coil fire (R-L R-R) or (according to the wiring diagram I've got) does the front coil fire (F-L R-L) and the rear coil fire (F-R R-R). I even drew a map so I wouldn't cross wire it... messed up somewhere
I'm going outside and put the old coils back on and see if I get spark, I know they work, the only reason I though to replace them was that I discovered that the front coil was split open in the body.
Will check in later... thanks for all the help so far. I do appreciate your time
Those who can DO!
Those who can't... SUPPLY THE BEER!
