Default Little to no spark!!

I just bought this 79 suzuki gs 1000, and started working on it. It has new points, plugs, and wire ends. I am getting weak or no spark at the plugs. I believe it could be the coils. Some tell me its probably the condensors and points, which they appear to be brand new and I used emory cloth to clean the points and still nothing. Anyone that could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it... Thanks

You should check the condensor because a leaky one will cause a weak spark.

Also pull and clean and reseat all the electrical connections in the ignition circuit. You may just have a poor connection.
