V-Star Stator/pickup coil help
I recently bought my first bike, a 2006 VStar 650 Midnight custom. Really like the bike but already have an issue. The bike has 12k miles but won't start. I've read a lot and have narrowed it down to the pickup coil or CDI but I am a little shakey on electric stuff and multimeters. The book said that the pickup coil should ready 182-222 ohms, my meter is a craftsman automatic and when I hook it up I am getting a constant fluctuation from 1.330 down to .999 Mohms. With all that said is when I turn off the automatic setting and change the reading levels I get 01.90 to 02.80 Mohms and no readings on the 000.0 Mohms setting and no readings on any K setting. I am thinking the fact that the ohm meter never settles is an indication of a bad pickup coil but could use a little advise, any help?
