Whenever I do welding on mine, I unhook both battery terminals, then pull the plugs to the R/R and CDI....
I touched up my pipes once w/o doing any of it, and interesting, but my R/R went right after.....never connected the 2 until now....thanks...
This is my first bike with fancy electronics, so I really aint sure....
Were ya using stick or a lower voltage mig ?....I used a lower setting flux core, and was fine....mebbe its the amount of power used that actually does it....

Guess I got lucky by taking the tach bracket to the vise for welding.
I've had pros tell me both ways, disconnect the battery, and it doesn't matter. One old sage did say that if your welding ground lead shares ground with a component, it can get fried.
My welder is Korean War surplus, maybe WWII, so I don't take chances.

|artstoy||I doubt you have any coil issues, not something that would generally be affected. cdi yes, would think it would mostly be isolated to that.|

|crowley1027||Just found the electrical resistance chart in the manual for testing coils and igniter. Sigh...|

I hope I didn't do the same thing....
How can you check Che coils and cdi ? Continuity tests? I think slim might be able to help here

Yup. I learnt the hard way about welding on a bike.
Should have disconnected all electronics to be safe.
Only takes a second to disconnect the junction box, battery & such.

|slimvulcanrider||very possible you fried the CDI, as it ground out through the engine and frame as well as the battery.|
