Thanks for the responses. I have put a new generator gasket on, new handlebars, degoated and fixed several issues (missing screws, hoses, incorrect rebuilds, new air filters, ignition coils, and several o-rings). It was definitely more work than I was hoping. Anyway, I tried the tach disconnect and noticed my battery is also dead (probably form trying to get it to start). I did get spark with disconnecting the tach, so any ideas on what the problem is (possibly a lose wire or connection). The engine still would not start. I am hooping to charge the battery up overnight and give her a shot in the morning.
