No need. Your brain can do the math [joke] I'm also thinking about the ground side. Maybe a bad ground ? But you are right. Using a volt meter to check the voltage drop can be useful. A good way to check the viability of battery cable connections. I'd start with the kill switch and follow the circuit through the ignition switch, all the way to the coils. Could even be before the kill switch. Something is being lost somewhere. ...J.D.
