KLE250 circuit diagram and help

I've recently rebuilt a KLE250. I've powder-coated the frame and repainted the body but we've had a problem. I'm in Cambodia and, well, things here are a little different. The 1 week turnaround took 3 months and now, putting her back together, I just don't remember where everything goes.
I've got the loom rebuilt and everything works but she won't fire up. My guess is it's the coils, I wasn't sure which wires to put where and there's no clues.
Also, if anyone knows these bikes and can offer any advice about plumbing in the rad and water system, i'm having some trouble there too.
Cheers, dudes.

I'd ask your question over in 'Thumpers'.

You may have a non-grounding problem. Any wire that should be grounded should be touching completely bare metal. Sometimes, after a paint job or powder coat, the ground area on the frame are covered up.

Does the spark plug produce a fat, blue spark? Check this first.

It's a parallel twin. Every earth has been bared down to metal. My guess is my wiring is wrong. Hence the need for a diagram. Does anyone know if it uses the same loom as a KLE 500 or any other bike, come to that?

Sorry, everything in the States with a KL... is a single. My bad. I'm sure you have done a google
search. Several KLR series diagrams come up.

Yeah, whenever I google it, it defaults back to KLR. I've been told the KLE 500 engine slots straight in so presumably the loom is the same, I don't know if it shares a loom with any other bikes. I doubt it's the same as the KLR though as that would only have one coil. I'm pretty sure I've got the coils wired up backwards or wrong.

Looks like the circuit diagram matches to the ER6. Thanks for the suggestions.
