To measure it,you would need to remove the electronics and test each component separately...This is not a project even I would attempt...the parts are "potted" with a gooey black stuff and is near impossible to remove.
The ignition system is very simple.Only 3 parts are needed to make a spark..
Ignition coil.
Ignition module..
Pulse coil..
12 volts and a ground.
Because the modules are the same,they can be swapped positions.
What problem do you have?

Are you thinking the spark isn't strong enough?
When is it misfiring?

Generally the ignitors(ignition module) don't go bad or weak...
Test this...
Start the bike..slowly loosen one spark plugs cap and pull it away from the spark plugs just a little.As you pull it back you will hear it sparking...it should continue to be a nice loud snap as you pull it about a inch away...
Do this on each plug...one at a time..Each one should sound the same.
I did also have a misfire on my Gl1500.I could hear the different spark..My coil was bad...
