Hello to all, are about a couple of weeks that I follow this forum (and also Thumper Talk), I decide to ask for advice. I have a '84 XL600R I'd like to restore. I took it for a few euro from a colleague who wanted to throw it away. It's been off for a couple of years. I was able to turn it on for a couple of times, then stop. The spark is very weak. I measured the resistance of the alternator (ignition circuit) which value is higer than 319ohms. The strange thing is it changes each time I kick on the kickstarter, last sunday I measured these values: 5.54k, 16.6k, 7.28k, 8.10k. There seems to be a bad contact. The winding generates 44 Volts RMS. Any suggestions or opinions? Moreover the pulse generator resistance is of 368 ohms, should i replace it? P.S. Has this forum a section where I can introduce myself?
