The problem is the battery is disconnected - it will not run without a battery

Disconnecting the battery while running can damage the electronics - DON'T DO IT!

Put a meter on the battery terminals the same way you'd check ANY charging system. Should show around 14.5-14.8 vdc @ 3500 rpm.

If it had a DC generator for a charging system, you could remove a battery cable and it will continue to run from the generator putting out a charge, but an alternator charging system will not normally support a DC ignition when disconnected from the battery
