Does anyone have a clue how to test an ignition coil to see if it is functional? i.e. with a mutlimeter.... Do they normally fail?

I'm still trying to troubleshoot the ignition system on my Indian. The plug is good, the magneto is putting out juice, because I can beep the horn I hardwired to the battery.

It must be one of these, correct?

Wiring Problem

Condensor

*Ignition Coil

Which should I suspect first, which is the most common failure?

The 'ped failed all of a sudden during a 10 mile-ish ride, if that's a helpful clue.

Thanks a lot in advance!
