OK so the coil I ordered is delayed till the new year, I want to test fire the CB125 to know it will run before we strip it all down and do all the work. Can I hook up a 12V battery and Coil to it and test fire it? I was trying to find coil to borrow but no luck and I really want to fire it up now. I know if I put a 6V battery and 12V coil the Coil won't spark well and may cause starting issues. So to try the 12V I would connect the coil to the bike and points, battery to the coil but not connect the charging system as I just need it to run for a minute from battery alone. What am I missing?
