OK, now that helps -- thank you very much. Since I unplugged the sensor from the bike to test it what would be the best way to send power to the sensor (via pin 3)?

So, do I send both the positive and negative to pin three? Or, just the positive and hook the negative up to one of the other pins? Thank you. Hopefully, I can test this sensor soon -- haha. Thanks.

Positive Pin 3
Negative Pin 1

Measure Pin 2 to Pin 1

Why do you need to test

Thanks.

I need to test it because my bike won't start. I read a lot of peoples' sensors went bad and was the reason for not starting.

OK Mr boss of bosses, what then? All connections appear to be perfect, yet I have no spark. Something somewhere is broken. Thanks.

What is the best way to test the solenoid and the coil? Can I do that with my multi-meter?

cranking with no spark? solonoid okay because that powers the starter motor. did you test for spark with plugs out, stuck in the coil and grounded on the motor? check side stand switch for short to ground, check that pick up sensor for short to ground. fuses all good? battery charged up? engine light on?

I FAILED.

The real problem was the fuel line became disconnected (in the tank). I ordered a new fuel filter and better clamps (the current clamps are shit -- obviously). I lost over a month of riding over this shit. I am going to spank the shit out of this bitch after I get her started up.


edit: I failed to not properly ground the plug and/or was not able to see the spark against the backdrop, which was the engine.
