Starter solenoid does click when the key is turned.
Motor is turning over, I checked for compression when I checked for spark with plug out.
The strange thing is that the bike will fire with the starter after it has been pushed started. It seems to start with the starter for a period of time that relates to how long the bike has been running.
Say I push start it and then turn it off it will start with the starter once immediately after I turn it off but then won't after that. If I run the bike for say 30-45 minutes, it will crank and start with the starter for about five minutes after I turn the bike off.
I've read on other sites that if the stator is weak you can push start the bike because it spins the motor faster than the starter will and thus creates a better voltage to the coil for a spark. Does anyone know if there is any truth to that?
AC voltage to the coil jumps from .5V to 1.1V when cranking. So my next question is what should the voltage to the coil be when cranking?
I'm assuming that it should be AC voltage to the coil because I get some voltage when cranking, but I have read different opinions from different sources as to weather the voltage is AC or DC. So should the voltage to the coil be AC or DC?
