Low Spark Coil

After a recent altercation with a deer I've been slowly putting my Bonnie back together. However now I'm stumped!

Got everything back in place and noticing that the bike has no spark.

Does anyone have any idea of how to check my coil?

These are the resistances to be expected from an OEM coil:

LT circuit (low tension or coil primary winding) 0.6 Ohms.

To check the entire HT (High tension or secondary winding) together with plug caps and leads proceed like this:

Did the gapping, and found that the ignitor was blown. Opted for a procom unit. Bike started this weekend for the first time in 6 months. That felt awesome.
