NOTE

Be sure the battery is fully charged.

Do not remove the spark plugs.

Stick Coil Primary Peak Voltage Inspection


Install the new spark plug [A] into each stick coil [B], and ground them onto the engine.

Connect the peak voltage adapter [C] into the hand tester [D] which is set to the DC 250 V range.

Connect the adapter to the lead wire-peak voltage adapter [E] which is connected between the stick coil connector and stick coil.

Stick Coil Primary Peak Voltage Inspection


Connections: Adapter (R, +) → Lead Wire-Peak Voltage Adapter (W) Adapter (BK, –) → Lead Wire-Peak Voltage Adapter (R)

WARNING

To avoid extremely high voltage shocks, do not touch the spark plugs or tester connections.

Stick Coil Primary Peak Voltage Standard: 100 V or more

If the reading is less than the specified value, check the following.

Check 3-3: High Beam Indicator Light (LED) Inspection
Connect the leads in the same circuit as Check 3-2. Connect the terminal [7] to the battery (+) terminal. Check that the high beam indicator light (LED) [A] goes on. If the indicator light does not go on, replace the meter unit. ...

Piston Ring End Gap Inspection
Place the piston ring [A] inside the cylinder (upper crankcase), using the piston to locate the ring squarely in place. Set it close to the bottom of the cylinder, where cylinder wear is low. Measure the gap [B] between the ends of the ring with a thickness gauge. Piston Ring End Gap ...

KIBS Servicing Precautions
There are a number of important precautions that should be followed servicing the KIBS. This KIBS is designed to be used with a 12 V sealed battery as its power source. Do not use any other battery except for a 12 V sealed battery as a power source. Do not reverse the battery cable connec ...
