Exclamation test cdi w.o. kawasaki tester?

Hi to all fellow "Saki"ers. I need a vets advice. It's the much loved no spark issue. Here we go. On my 2007 250 Ninja I put the key in and turn to on pos. Neutral light is on also the oil light. The engine turns over but no spark. First I checked the resistance on the coils and found them no good. I bought some new ones from eBay I was told from a running low miladge 07 250. Resistance check was 3.7 primary winding and 19k ohms on secondary winding. Needless to say out of spec. I'm fixing that sistuation. One of my questions is is there any leeway for the spec numbers vs. My numbers..just too test and see if I can get spark out of it untill the good coils come in.? spec is 2.3-3.2 and 10-16k ohms. Another question is the manual says to check the Cdi/ignitor with a Kawasaki volt meter..who even has one..is there a way to test it with just a normal volt meter to check the ohms? I did the check any way and like the manual says I did get diffrent readings than the spec chart. Some of the leads that were supose to be "infident" wernt. is it tipical for the coils and CSI to go out at the same time? I tested the coil pick up was 125 ohms in good spec the 3 yellow output wires were infinite in good spec. I bypassed to kickstand ppl by just connecting the wire leads and the clutch safety switch with a jumper. neutral switch looks like its working, knows when's its in gear. so I think I got past the start circuit just need some help with the run circuit. so if I get good coils, I belive I have a good stor, all good fuses, I belive my rectifier is good becouse all the manual tests for it went well, shouldn't I have spark after I troubleshoot/replace Cdi? Also is there anything that has to do with the oil light being on that could cause this problem? Any and all advice is great.
