Red face Ignition coil test ???

2001FLHT CARB MODEL, Stopped firing without warning. The ignition coil testing across the secondary(where plug wires go) is testing 11,500 ohms.
The manual states it should be between 5500 & 7500 ohms. Could this be my problem? Would this keep it from firing, having to high of a reading? Any advice appreciated.
I can't seem to get any codes, could the coil be bad and not show a code??

Thanks

Re: Ignition coil test ???

Are you measuring between terminal B and each spark plug wire hole? Each side should be almost the same. It almost sounds like your reading Hole to Hole.

One of your sides reads a lot higher than the other.?

If only the secondary winding was bad, I can't see how it could post any codes for that model year..
