Just bought bike, not running. Grounded plug to motor to check for spark. Appeared weak. Anyway to check for sure. If needs new coils, any aftermarket suggestions. Thanks, Kurt

I certainly would NOT be spending money on coils (there probably are only two) without knowing for sure that is the problem.

I don't think the spark on those was too impressive when new.

Have you tried some starting fluid to see if it will sputter to life for a few seconds ??
