Let me add more info, sorry. It's been driving me crazy lol. Friend gave me a bike his friend gave him, who he got it from someone else.. I've never seen the bike run, and I'm trying to figure it out.
The solenoid is the wrong one, and it's bad. Bridging it gets the motor to crank, spark works when the clutch is pushed (which I'm told is normal?) and it doesn't fire sprayed starting fluid in it many a time. Switch is on, gets spark. Just no go-go. Not so much as a cough. Just cranks and cranks.
I've been reading up on the forum and tinkering (Got a Hayne's manual, too) and I tried the Grambo trick (last guy thought it might be a timing issue) and I realized the rear cylinder has been changed from ACCT to a manual. Obviously this might be more of an engine issue, than an electrical issue, but is there any way I can check the timing on the front and the rear? I read that you have to pretty much take the motor out to check the rear. Would timing be my next suspect?
