The DT360 was the beginning of Yamaha's venture in Capacitor Discharge Ignition (CDI). No points, however it does have a pulser coil (under the magneto) and a CDI box under the seat. Yamaha generally recommended replacing the parts as a final tesgt of there condition. This can be expensive. First thing I would check is the ignition switch and the kill switch. The kill switch should be easily checked by unplugging it. Generally the coil will only cause problems after bike has been running and heats up. The other components more difficult. The battery has nothing to do with running of your DT360A.
