Sorry mate don't want to confuse things, but, I just remembered something and have double checked... it may be okay...
I had a few issues when I first bought mine and tested the pickup coil and found it to be 383 ohms, thought it was knackered and bought a nos honda one and found that to be the same. So, I figured there may be an error in the Honda workshop manual or just newer parts testing differently. Anyway, finally sorted out the issues and it seemed to run okay until the issues with the valve seat.
My Haynes manual turned up shortly after and in there it states the pulsar/pickup coil should test at 360 - 440 ohms. I've just tested mine again and it's 383. Not sure if one of the XL guru's can shed any light on this? I'm also wondering what values the clymer manual gives, if anyones got one?
