Hello, I have a 2009 ex500r a couple months ago my bike got stolen, after I got it back I noticed the solenoid got ripped and the ignition was popped out, after getting a new ignition, solenoid and cleaning the carbs, I noticed it would crank but it would never start. I pulled the plugs and grounded them...I think, be forewarned I'm about as incompetent as you can be when it comes to electricity, looked at the tip while it was grounded to the engine, no spark, I checked the hot wire that plugs into the ignition coil and got I think .03v when I hit the start switch, and .4v when I let it off, I took off the handlebar switch cover to see if the switch itself that leads to the plugs was getting enough juice and it was pulling at 12.4v at the time, however I cranked it so much trying to find the problem the battery got drained, i have since charged the battery and installed new ignition coils thinking that was maybe the problem. Still no dice, after doing more reading I noticed some people mention the ignition needs a 8amp resistor, the ignition I bought has this thing attached to it I'm assuming this is the resistor? Is this why there is no spark? How do I install it? If no where should I touch my multimeter to next so I can get some actually useful information for you guys.
