SOURCE: wont run...

Any water in the gas? Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Get a fresh set of stock NGK spark plugs. Clean or replace the air filter. You seem to be pretty thorough in what you have done, but since plugs and filter weren't mentioned I had to ask.

Assuming you are getting air, gas and spark, and the timing is correct then it should run. Right? Not necessarily. Can the bike breathe? If pressure cant get out of the tailpipe the bike won't run. Mufflers can sometimes collapse internally. This restricts the flow of burned gasses. causing backpressure. If nothing goes out of the cylinder then nothing goes in.

Try removing the exhaust pipes. Now see if it will run. Get back to me because I would like to know what you find.

SOURCE: sometimes fires sometimes doesnt

The side stand kill switch can go bad and do this. Check the switch with an Ohm meter. Also, check the wiring harness connections. Fix any loose connections. Check the handlebar kill switch. It can go bad also.

Please rate this answer. Thanks hd87lovetori!

SOURCE: Im not getting spark on my 1986 kx 125.

Use a volt meter or test light to see if have output. If not check that you have a good ground everywhere. I am assuming that you have changed the plug wire if you went this far. Good Luck

SOURCE: 2007 KXF 250 electrical problem

when the ignition parts like the coil and the transistors in the cdi unit gets warmed up they dont work as well as when there cool,,,so a problem thats not there when cold will be there when its hot,,,,if the stator has a small fault in it when cold when it gets hot it turns into a big fault! the best way to find this fault is by swoping one part at a time till you fine the faulty part,,,or put it into the bike shop and pay through the knows for the fix? have you a friend with the same type of bike you could swop the parts with??? it a big big help if you have! i would start with the coil then the cdi unit,,,there the most likley parts to play up when they get to hot they go faulty!

Checking a stator and coils to be good or faulty.

Hi Dale, You really need to know and understand how the ignition system of your bike is supposed to work before you can discover what is wrong, the only alternative is having a bit of luck.
There were four different basic types of ignition system in common use before "new" solid state systems came along so now there are probably double that number each using different circuitry and needing different requirements.

The fault could be the stator, depending on system, which as you had removed it and found it damaged should have been tested before refitting it. The ohms range of a decent multimeter would check the coils but something better is needed to check the insulation.

Old GM repair manuals recommended using a home made tester using mains electricity...

Some later model bikes are fitted with an immobiliser and if your bike is so equipped it would be wise to check it is being properly disarmed before you drive yourself nuts looking for a non-fault.

How do I check a stator to be good or bad? How do I check the coil to be good or bad?

Really you either need a manual for the machine and hope it gives you an ohms test sequence or another running bike the same to test your parts on.have you not tried disconnecting the kill switch or ignition switch first that's my first point of reference.

KX60 stator coil values, keeps popping spark plug

burn out silencer packing or exaust leaks can burn a sparkplug , i guess your exaust system have lots of leaks that make the sparkplug fool and burn

KLX 110 not getting enough spark i think to burn the fuel

Hi, Jason and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary, your battery may show 12.5 volts but have little or zero amps and needs to be replaced.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, points/condenser ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
16. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
17. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

No spark on my dt50 1986

Check the on/off switch for corrosion.Cleanit and use dielectric grease on it. If this still doesnt help,then check the stator and make sure the keyway key hasnt sheared off. If it hasnt,then do a stator test on the stator to make sure the stator is good.
Good Luck!

Put new engine in carnt get a spark at plug sym jet 50cc euro 2004 model

There may be several things causing this fault (your sure the plug is fine?)

The ignition systems on these bikes are pretty basic. The Stator plate provides power to the CDI unit, which builds up until the pulser tells it to send the power to the coil and produce the spark

1. is there voltage from the stator plate (under flywheel) - you can test with a basic multimeter.

2. is the pulser sending a pulse - also can be tested with basic multimeter

3. is the CDI blown? - swap out to test

4. Is the Coil blown? - can be tested with multimeter

it is also very possible that you may have got a couple of wires mixed up when you switched engines.

Fresh rebuild now no spark

If it ran before, I would double check your electrical connections. Its more likely you didn't get a connector pushed all the way together or left off a ground wire. The ignition coil specs are generally 1 ohm or less on the primary (small Wire) side, and 5K-10K ohms on the secondary (spark plug) side. Each side should be tested to ground. Pick-up coils are typically open or really large ohm reading in Megaohms normally and around 100 ohms when the magnet on the flywheel passes by. there is no way to test the CDI box other than putting it on a know running bike or getting a known good CDI and putting it on your bike. Double check that the spark plug cap is secured to the high tension lead as well. Testing the stator is a little more complicated, but a quick way is to close the gap on an old spark plug to about 0.010" and see if there is a week spark. If so, the stator will need to be replaced.

Yamaha trx850 bike stopped then restarted no problem following week stopped again this time would not restart--no spark at all been in bike shop for 2 weeks they cant find anything wrong

If they find nothing wrong then the problem is obviously intermittent and can be very hard to find. Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral wire connection.
The usual source of intermittent loss of spark is the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. Check for a broken wire at the switch or coupler. Get a service manual and check out the electrical section. Some bikes have a diode controller integrated into the turn signal relay. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. If that doesn’t work, check out the relay.The dealer would / should have load tested the various ignition components. I will assume the ignition system is okay. Check the battery and fuses. Install a new set of stock spark plugs.
