super stuck, no spark, has power to coils, and the wire leads pulse while cranking, but has absolutely no spark from both coils on all 4 wires coil output. checked all fuses, cleaned up all the connectors on the wire harness, bike sat stored since 1996 with no fluids, idk history previous, I bought it not running for a project and cannot figure this out, also not very good with wiring/ignition I have a test light and a 7 dollar multimeter tool from harbor freight that I don't know how to use or test, also I can't find any fuse panel diagram, or firing order or much info on how to troubleshoot this bike, any help and info would be very appreciated.

thank you.

Pssst…it’s in his title. ‘84 500 Interceptor.

To the OP, seems silly, but how’s the engine/frame to battery ground?

Later, Doug
:oops: how did I miss that?

to the no spark issue: coils will have a 12v power thats hot whenever the ignition is on and a pulsing ground when cranking or running. probe the two wires that go into each coil and look for a constant 12v with ignition on one side and a pulsing ground when cranking on the other.
