Pulled apart my new engine and swapped rear covers, set the engine under the bike and test-spun it and I have spark now! One more mystery solved. Rear frame butchery after the jump

Starter plugged in, wiring harness hooked up. Crank it over and I get spark!

Working on cleaning up the wiring a little bit.
