2003 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 No Spark
I bought my Vulcan a year or so ago as a project bike. Was not running at the time but was excellent in cosmetic condition. Upon further inspection I learned that the no start issue was a result of no spark. So far I have just thrown parts at it and even had a full electrical diagnostic done on the bike by a Kawasaki dealer that yielded a bad CDI box. (I prefer to fix things myself or I would have let the dealer fix it.) So far I've replaced the CDI box, spark plugs, ignition coils, and pickup coil to no avail. Any ideas on what I should check next? Also I should mention it has a "Thunder" after market ignition switch relocated to the top of the tank.
