I tried jumping to the coil and still no power. At least no consistent power. I got a momentary power up. In searching for a ground fault I noticed the battery
was reading inconsistent voltage. So after a lot of messing about it came down to the battery
. I've heard of batteries
shorting out internally so that must have been it. Put another battery
in and all is good.
Upside is I pulled the seat off the bike and found the oil tank steady bolt was missing. Had a nut and bolt and spacer that worked better than nothing for now. And also cleaned her up a bit when the seat was off.
Still don't know if I'm sure how to get the switch out, but I'll cross that bridge when I need to.
Thanks for the response.
