    I have a kawasaki fb460v with no spark. The coil checks out fine but the igniter has 1.2 kohm across both terminals in either polarity. I think that means it is bad but i am not sure. I hate to spend $80 bucks on a part that is not bad . any help would by great thanks

    RestroRob - thanks for the help. However, I have one more question. In the table 'control unit resistance', what does the ON stand for before the resistance reading? Do you have any idea? Thanks again! Jonh

    I'm having a problem with mine and thought I'd poke this just to see if Restrobob might get an Email and post what he found on his.

    At least this gives me the specs for testing. :clapping:

    Look for a cheaper one than 80 bucks. Such as mfgsupply.com #31-9334
