Re: Testing coils?
I'm not sure how to answer your question, if you're getting spark that would suggest that the coil is working,
I don't have any idea how you would determine if you're getting "enough" spark,
if you've got compression and fuel I would think "any" spark would cause ignition.
I've had a couple of the older K-bikes
put almost a hundred thousand miles on a K75RT
and about the same on a K1100LT,
never had any problems other than fuel related.
The reason I bring that up is if your bikes running rough
I would suggest you look into the fuel filter (it's inside the tank) and the injectors,
they are extremely sensitive to dirt,
My advice is: try the simple stuff first
run some fuel injector cleaner through it, its cheap and easy,
you'll know in about 20-30 miles whether it worked.
