My P200 has suddenly died on me. I tried new plugs and a new CDI unit, still nothing. Then I measured the pickup unit: 116, which is good, and then I measured the ignition coil: 520, which is also within range. Still no spark.

What else can I test or check for?

Should be 2 green wires going to CDI. Pull the green wire going to CDI from the handle bars. If you have spark, you have a short of the kill wire in the frame.

Also check continuity between white wire and frame. This should have a good connection as it is your ground.
Hope this helps.
