You will find detail specification, service information, troubleshooting procedures and component testing of each parts mentioned above. Here is a quotation from the ignition system section:
“All the electrical components can be inspected on the motorcycle. The ignition system has one pulse generator and transistorized spark unit for each pair of cylinders. Current is sent through the ignition coil primary circuit by the spark unit as the pulse generator rotor tooth approaches the generator tooth. When the rotor tooth just passes the generator tooth the primary circuit is broken causing the primary coil flux to collapse and secondary coil voltage rapidly raise, firing the spark plugs. Dwell time is just 0.2 – 0.4 milliseconds.”
