So i just picked up this 1985 xj 700 today with the PO claiming it lost spark after he got caught in the rain last year. He told me he replaced the plugs, plug wires, and coil packs but he still had no spark. I brought it home and checked for myself, and sure enough I had no spark on any of the cylinders. I followed along with the forum titled: How To: Ignition Troubleshooting until I got to step 3 in the trouble shooting section. I checked for resistance on the safety cut out wire and at first I had a reading bouncing around from around 400 ohms to 15oo ohms. I retried figuring I wasn't making a good connection with my meter where the wire ran into the plug. And to be sure I was grounding I put the other lead on the negative battery terminal. I heard a few clicks coming from the right side of the bike as I was doing this and had no idea what it was since I was only checking resistance. After trying the same procedure yet again, I was unable to produce a reading on my meter nor was I able to make the unknown component click again. Again I checked for spark and surprisingly I had spark on cylinders 3 and 4 but nothing on 1 and 2. Being that I was expecting spark on either 1 and 4 or 2 and 3, not 3 and 4, I had no idea what happened. Any thoughts on what could've changed that made spark on the right cylinders? Did i damage something when I checked for resistance on the safety cutout? Any help is appreciated!
