Hey guys, It's me again. I resurfaced the clutch plates and threw in new springs while I was waiting for some carburetor parts. That quelled the mechanical itch a little bit. I still have not been able to perform a compression test. I bought a new battery and got it charged up but I cannot seem to get the bike to turn over at all. I have used a multimeter to follow through with the suggestions in this thread: How to: Ignition troubleshooting. It seems that with the key in the ignition I have around 12 volts. Pressing the starter button gets no audible reaction, however the voltage does drop to around 10. I did not check the safety relay resistance (black and white wire from TCI) as this wire is cut, capped, and zip tied. The bike is in neutral with the kickstand down. Neutral light is on. I am unsure how important this is with the snipped wire. I do not know a ton about electronics, maybe this itself is the issue. I have read on here that it is unwise to disable these safety features and I will likely rewire them if the bike passes the compression check. I was curious if the advice given in the aforementioned thread would be good for me to follow; finding a new TCI. I also thought that perhaps my issuer lies in the actual starter motor or the solenoid. Advice on which component to look into first would be appreciated.
