GOt a 45 mm mikuni,this bike ran through hurricanes here in fl.. I think something got wet and back shorted the ignition switch,etc.

with the ignition switch in the ignition position and the run/stop switch in run, measure the voltage on the coil terminal with the white/black wire.

let me know what you find.
