    I have an ‘82 XS400 and it will not start. There is no spark when the key is turned on but one quick spark when key is turned off. All coils have been ohm metre tested and good. How do you bypass the two safety switches?
  2. Jump the solenoid with a screwdriver?

    Spark when turning off is normal.

    Double-overhead cam or single? 1982 had both, don't recall if it makes a difference for the relays.

    Following up on buzta's comment, in what way does it not start? Starter motor doesn't spin when button pressed?
