I have been all over the internet looking for a site that shows how to test a bikes ignition system with out the bike running. Any suggestions for some sites. Thanks. Mike.

What comes to mind is making sure your spark plug recess is clean and pull the plug, leave it connected but laying on the cylinder head well grounded and spin the engine. If it's firing you'll see it. Cleaning the recess eliminates sand being sucked through the hole.
This of course tells you nothing of timing nor voltage but a nice blue spark is a good indicator things are at least firing.

Hey Mike, it's great to know you're still around. I wish I could help with your bike, but I have no idea. Good Luck.

If all else fails, a cleaning of the ignition and/or a new one could be in order.

Dingo.
