Aha! After taking off the side cover, I found the nut to hold the rotor missing. Ordered a new one, put it on, kick, no spark. Disconnected both wires for the kill switch, still nothing. So next is the points. Anybody know the correct gap?

Points gap .012-.016

Plug gap .025

From this source http://en.allexperts.com/q/Motorcycl...lsinore-MT.htm

Hope this helps.

Is it me or did anyone else think this was a wind up.

Ok wait. The stator is screwed onto the engine case, it holds the three primary coils and the points. The flywheel (or rotor) is held onto the crankshaft via a single nut. I'm guessing you mean the nut for the flywheel was loose. Was the flywheel loose? If so, you may have sheered the flywheel key. The flywheel needs to be "clocked" to a particular position by that key. You should need a flywheel puller to get the flywheel off to access the points. Did you change the condenser? You can use a condenser off of just about anything.

Pissed

News flash (literally). I got spark! But only once. I widened the gap, and kicked over, and it sparked the first time, but after that, nothing. What does this mean?

Are you using an old plug? If so try a new one, if that doesn't work try a new condenser.

No. I didn't mention a few steps. The key was sheared, so I replaced that too. And while I'm at it, the threads where screwed up ( pun intended) so I cleaned them up with a chaser. I also replaced the spark plugs and the condenser is part of the ignition coil.

on your bike the condenser is up by the coil but it is still replaceable .
