This morning I first ohms tested (front: 473, rear: 482), then swapped, the two pickup coils located inside of the stator cover. Front to rear, rear to front.
Expectation: If the front pickup coil was bad, now the rear would no longer spark, but the front ignition coil, now being triggered by what was the working rear coil, would now fire.
Results: The front cylinder still does not fire. The rear cylinder still does fire, although not enough to turn over the bike. So, I open the stator cover, and I return the two pickup coils back to their original positions. The bike starts, runs on only the rear cylinder. Front still doesn't fire.
What the heck is going on?
