I just picked this bike up at an auction today, the first Norton for me. I'm not getting any spark when kicking it over. However, it does give me a nice spark each time I turn the key from one position to another, is that normal? It has a boyer ignition apparently. I wasn't sure where the key should be until I spoke to the seller, who said all the way clockwise. (I did check for spark with the key at each position though) He said there's no kind of kill switch, just the key. According to him, it starts one or two kicks reliably. I'm figuring there's just something I'm not thinking of. I've already bugged him quite a bit getting the price down & such (It didn't meet his reserve with the bids), I really feel bad pestering him any more. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
