View Full Version : Condenser on - side of coil?

06-17-2010, 8:53 PM
Working on a '70 CL 100. When I got the bike it did not run. Turned out that the stock condenser on the coil was bad. It was in the ground (points) side of the coil wire right before the coil. I bypassed it, and the bike ran.
What is it for? How will it effect the ignition system/engine to run with out it?
