A simple test .... remove the plug end from the coil wire and hold it with insulated pliers 1/4 inch from the engine while cranking. If no spark check engine ground with a test light...... I will post some test procedures here in a minute

Be carefull. Yamaha's "CDI" box's can be damaged if one spark jumps with taht test. Would recommend a "Dynamic spark tester" on all Yamaha's from 1979 G1's to 1994 G14's (G16 and later went tyo a magneto ignition system. Good luck Dave
