Testing ignition coils

Before I do this motor swap. Ide really like to test my ignition coils. My bike acts as if it's not getting fuel. Won't idle. Won't start without starter fluid (sometimes) won't accelerate properly. Everything fuel related and sparkcrelated has been replaced EXCEPT ignition coils. Before I just blindly buy some and replace can anyone tell me how to test them?

if you are getting spark at the sparkplugs your coils are working.

It would help to know what the bike is and the year etc... to test the coils pretty sure you need an ohm meter and test across the terminals you will also need a manual so you will know what ohm it should read. but if you ask me it is most def. a fuel problem, check your fuel pump.

Yes, impossible to help without more information. Could be a broken wire, bad igniter, bad battery. So little to go on. Ugh.

, we don't even know the year, make or model of the bike. How in the are we supposed to know if your coils are good or what the procedure is for testing them?
