I was riding with a buddy this past weekend and we ran into a problem with his 87 XR 600. The bike whas running fine until he tipped it over. It's not a fuel related problem. The bike just isn't getting spark now. We checked all wiring connections including the spark plug cap and every wiring harness connection. The wiring is only about a year old so I don't think there could be a short in an actual wire. The light still comes on when you kick it over. I'm at a loss. should I test the little black box under the seat? I think it's the ignition control module. What other tests should I perform. It just seems so wierd that tipping the bike over would cause this.
