So my bike went dead when I came out of the store , no power to anything, my buddy though it was the ignition lock as it was loose , so he tried to wired it so it should have had power regardless of a key or not but won't start with kick start ,

Battery is new , zero blown or burnt fuses

Idk we're to start or what readings I need
This is the first points system bike I've had as far as I know I have the battery, tci Box?(below the regulator/rectifier)? , ignition coils , stator, starter

Below are all pictures of my system from battery to ignition coils and plugs
also the 3 wires to my ignition lock (red/black , red/grey,. And red)
I just don't know we're to start or what readings I need to look for , my manuals are on order

Do you have a voltmeter? Test light?
What is the battery voltage with the bike turned off?

I do not have a test light and bike has no ignition, as is (the 3 wires pictured were attached to the old ignition lock )

So the battery has 12 V and usually that goes to the ignition lock
where it should be found on one wire and to ground ( fex Cylinder Cooling fins ) OFF position
other side 0 V off position
On Position both sides of the lock should have 12 V to ground ..
If no lock please do not connect those wires ..for long times it can lead to coil or igntion system problems.

If you can find it at the Ignition lock wires ( cant se it on the Pictures ) please look at M JetM s # 7

try measure on the coli to ( fex Cylinder Cooling fins ) se if you can find voltage there.
