front cylinder and tach not working

went to go for a ride this evening and had a hard time starting the bike, when I finally got it running the tach wasn't working and the front cylinder wasn't firing. Any suggestions as to what to look for???

I believe the tach is wired to the wiring for the front coil. I'd look there to start with. Sounds like something has come loose or is shorted.

I believe I have shorted pick up coils........does the engine have to be removed to replace them????

The book will say yes. However, if you are good with a soldering iron and don't mind a little splicing inside the stator area, you can get away with not pulling the engine. There is a thread from 2-3 months ago where someone thought their pickup coils were shot and a lot of advice was put in there on how to do it without pulling the engine.
Here is the link.

Hope this helps. BTW, IIRC, it turned out the pick u coils weren't the problem here after all. That may help as well.
