Kawasaki FC 540V no / intermittent spark. Should the while

Customer Question

Kawasaki FC 540V no / intermittent spark.
Should the while wire to the igniter / coil have 12 V when the key is in the run position?
Also I swapped in a FC 540V AS03 for a FC 540V KS03 original equipment did not have an igniter ignition based system but the replacement does I have had it running and it seems ok but keep loosing spark.

Are you losing spark intermittenly? Is it a steady consistent lose when this happens? Will the engine still run when you are having spark issues?
