Ignition System
Crankshaft Sensor Peak Voltage Inspection
Disconnect the magneto lead connector [C].
Set the hand tester [B] to the × 25 V DC range, and con-
nect it a commercially available Peak voltage adapter [A]
as shown in the diagram.
Connect the black lead of the adapter to White/Green
lead and red lead to White/Red lead of the magneto lead
Kicking the primary kick, turn the engine 4 5 seconds
with the transmission gear in neutral to measure the
crankshaft sensor peak voltage.
Repeat the measurement 5 or more times.
Crankshaft Sensor Peak Voltage
4.0 V or more
Special Toos - Hand Tester: 57001-1394
Peak Voltage Adapter: 57001-1415
Type: KEK-54-9-B
Do not touch the metal portion of the Probe in case
of measuring the voltage, or you may receive a se-
rious electric shock
If the voltage is less than the specified, replace the pickup

Ignition Coil Inspection
Measuring arcing distance
The most accurate test for determining the condition of
the ignition coil is made by measuring arcing distance using
the coil tester for the 3-needle method.
Remove the ignition coil.
Connect the ignition coil (with the spark plug cap left in-
stalled on the spark plug lead) [A] to the tester [B], and
measure the arcing distance.
