Adding on to the 1300 Ignition system.
Several VTX 1300 having Ignition failures.
I wanted to do a current measurement through the coils to the ICM.
Removing the ICM connector and measuring current is the best method to verify
continuity from the IGN fuse to the ICM.
I pulled out the HL, Turns, and Tail fuses to lessen the current load.
I kept Odometer memory and Ignition/Starter fuse in place.
IGN Switch ON, I measured 3.9 amps and 3.7 amps on the ICM connector Ign coil wires
(Y/Bu and Bu/Y) with test meter on 10 amp range.
Red lead to ICM wires of interest and Neg lead to frame Ground.
Kill switch could be a could a good possibility. Connectors in the headlight bucket possibly.
Broken ICM wires Black wire (+12v+) and the IPG green wire are the most frequent failures
at the ICM.. Using a multi amp lamp would be a good test at the ICM Black wire.
