@jesse ..El pollo ( btw I love that handle) says test it. Tobdonthat u need a multitester with an audible "continuity" function. In that "mode", Jesse, when you touch both test probes the multitester emits a sound. That means electrons pass freely from one to the other. This is what is called continuity. The same goes for both ends of an unbroken electrical wire. But Jesse , if two stator wires trigger the continuity sound that can also mean that both ends of the wire are linked to a common ground ( the actual stator ) so to find that out u need to test each single wide to the stator metal. If any two wires have continuity to each other AND show lack of continuity to the stator metal then and only then is it likely you have a coil that is "floated".

Vespa ignition coils are "floated " so the above holds true. Vespa uses the other end of the ignition wire to power the brake light.

So go buy a multimeter. While u are on amazon or where ever careful to buy an AC and DC testing unit if u want to wrench successfully, though DC alone will suffice for continuity. DC only is $10. AC/DC is a bit more.

I'm being quite explicit here assuming u are new to this all. Please don't skim this.
