The other week I was riding and my bike acted like it was running out of gas. I had just filled up so that wasn't it. So the bike died in my driveway and wouldn't start again. When I was trying to test for spark I saw some smoke and the ground wire for the rectifier burned up. I have since replaced it and was putting everything back together after checking the negative strap (which was fine) and chasing all of the wires to look for frays or possible grounding situations. I checked for spark and was still getting none. After checking and testing the coils etc I pulled off the caps on the end of the spark plug wires and got spark. Then I reinstalled them and now the plug was firing. After putting the plugs back in I tried to start it and it wouldn't. After checking for spark they weren't. I pulled the ends off and was getting no spark either. I am also in the process of redoing a 1965 S65 Honda and it's doing the same thing. It gets spark when I pull out the spark plug sometimes but not always especially when they are in the head. Any ideas? Could it be the condesors?
