Wouldn't that bypass the coil? The resistor is between the coil and the dizzy. Should I jump the bat+ to coil+?
If it is a 12 volt conversion *and* has a 6 volt coil the resistor should be between switch and the coil or the battery and the coil. I suppose it won't damage anything, but I am not a big fan of jumping things like this, I prefer to use a meter.
Were it me I would verify spark. It there is weak spark or no spark I would get out the old multimeter and verify I was getting power to the coil. And then continue troubleshooting based on that finding.
I would want to verify it was a spark problem and not a fuel problem or something else prior to starting messing with the electrical system. My to30 would try to start but die right away. I pulled the drain from the float bowl on the carb and found very little fuel flowing. The filter and line were full of rust and other debris.
