My 220 is down, won`t start.
It has a very weak spark. I swapped the CDI box with a known good one, did not help. The igniter coil is generating about 25vac on kick start, and the coil reads 289ohms. I suspect thats the problem, I believe the volts out should be around 70volts and the resistance about 500-600 ohms.
Anybody who has the service manual or a good coil who could help me to confirm this problem, will help me a great deal.
Anticipated thanks, JT

I've got a service manual for my 220. I'll check it when I get home tonight.

Re: KDX-220 Question. (johnnymotocros)

I went ahead and rewound the exiter coil, ended up with 345ohms when finished, I intalled it and the engine started right away, but it started backwards,
, I reversed the coil wires and then worked good. Saved about 200$ +.
This is my first KDX and I love it. It's a very easy ride. Putting the front wheel over obstacles is piece of cake with just a quick throttle kick. Good bike for not so young like me, since it's power comes smooth and predictable. I think I'll stick with this bike for a long time.
