Ok, 2008 Stella 2T. Has been running fine. Yesterday afternoon it started up ran about 10 seconds and then just died. Had things to do so I couldn't get too deep into it then but a quick check showed no spark. Plug is a little sooty but nothing terrible.
Have been doing a good bit of reading and it seems like the possible problems in order of possibility are:
Bad Plug or loose HT wire.
Broken Kill Switch
Bad Stator (magneto)
I'll start by trying a clean plug to see if I get a spark.
Second would be disconneting the kill switch.
After that is where i get stuck. I've run across some diagnostics for how to test the CDI with a multimeter, but I can't seem to find the links anymore. The shop manual is all but useless with the useful suggestion to replace the part with a known good one and test.
Does anyone have guidance on how to actually test the CDI with a multimeter? Can the coil be tested?
Any advice other than just buy a new one of everything?
