GL1200 won't start

Little history on 1985 GL1200 Interstate---after the rebuild of starter it would not engaged (just spin) i was advised to add seafoam and drive 100 miles to remove sludge from stater clutch--drove it about 50 miles and bike just shut off--trailered it home and started just fine the next morning but shut off again within 10 mins.--then i was advised that could be the pulse generators--i swapped P/G with parts bike i bought (same model and year as mine down to the same color) i understand that they should ohms out at 1 to 2 (both sets ohmn to 3 to 4) --it started and ran great last night but would not start today-----things i tested (12 volts to both coils) (fuel pump fine) (cut-off switch cleaned) anymore suggestions
