Default wiring trouble

hi all i got a 1980 suzuki gs250, i stripped down to frame, but when i put back together i can only get it sparking on left hand coil, i have tryed changing coils over, but nothing happens, on the right side i seem to have both wires live when i turn key on, where the other side has one wire live and when turning over other wire is live every time it sparks, does anyone know what this could be,any help i would be very gratefull.

Possibly you repainted the frame and the coil is not grounded where it attaches to the frame?

Good, I have seen wires break and the insulation still be intact. You will need at least a cheap ohm meter and a couple of stick pins. You can stick the pins in the coil wiring and measure the resistance from one location to another location on the same wire. May have to flex the wire to detect a problem. No reading? No connection.
