Re: X19 wont start! Helpp!!
Please specify what you mean by "It sounds like it is going to start." Do you mean it fires once or twice? If it is firing once or twice your spark is fine, you need to do some carburetor work which we can lead you through.
To do an OHMs testing you will do exactly as Cam's picture says to do. Basically go to the side of your bike and you will see a half inch black wire coming out of your drivetrain. Follow that up to the little plastic connector, where it connects with the next set of wires. Then you will do exactly as the picture says and connect the red terminal (positive) of your voltimeter to the red and black wire of the plastic connector. Then you will put the black terminal (negative) of your voltimeter on the green wire or black wire that is not part of the plastic connector but is still coming out of the 1/2" wire.
If you look at the picture the arm of the voltimeter is set diagonal, set it exactly like that and it will read ohms, (unless your voltimeter does not look like that, but most basic ones do.)
Parts that effect spark: Stator (Alternator), CDI (Black box, holds a charge of a couple hundred volts), Coil (Oval looking thing with green wire attached, and heavy duty wire coming out of it that leads to the spark plug, and then the spark plug itself which needs to be gapped properly and very clean.
