Ohms question

I have tested my coil and I'm get like .9 ohms. Is this to much the book calls for only .2 max. I still have spark but doesnt run good enough to move.

Are you testing the primary or secondary? Are you checking the secondary with the spark plug cap attached to the wire? What scale on the meter are you using or is it self ranging? What brand meter are you using? When was the meter calibration last checked?

According to the Honda manual for the 05-09 TRX400EX, there is no specification for coil resistance - just the peak voltages for the primary input and secondary output. Which manual are you using?
