Re: B50 electrical box have I ruined the coil?

I take it that you replaced the fuse and then tried to start the bike. If this is the case then do you have a spark at the plug?

I should add using a timing light will tell you if you are getting a spark or not. the old ones that went in series are the best. BUT they don't account for a faulty spark plug.
