tried to check for spark (let me know if i did it wrong). disconnected the spark plug from the motor, connected it to the hose which was inserted in the cdi. then i pulled the clutch in to free the back wheel and lifted the back of the bike to turn the back wheel while watching the spark plug.

i did not see any sparks.

as i pop the clutch back in while riding it that little 10 feet as i get towards the end i can hear the compression (or probably just the disks re-gripping and ive been told not to intentionally ride with the clutch lever not pulled in).


hose, plug wire, its all the same thing. i'm no mechanic, clearly.
you cant check for spark with the clutch lever pulled in .let the lever out and turn the back wheel.
