Check fuses and earths first. Does the fuel pump prime when you first turn on the ignition? If not check relays. ,

It is a toss up. You can check the pulse generator with an Ohm meter. A nice dealer can give you the specification. You can test a CDI box with an Ohm meter , it can test good , and still be bad. The only good way to test a CDI is part swapping with another working bike. Most dealers will not let you return an electrical part and there is a restocking fee.

Idle problems with my kawi zx-10r 05

Hi there!

make sure your carburetors are clean. I guess you've done that already. I had this problem once and i drained the carburetor fuel reservoir and found out that it had water mixed in it. Pull on the chock and ram the throttle several times to get rid of any water stuck on the jets. Also, clean the plugs, and let the chamber dry for a while like 30 minutes... replace the spark plugs.

let me know if this helps

Night Riding Lights

I have a 2003 Ec 200 and looking to do some night riding and the current headlight doesnt seem man enough for the Job. Anyone got any recomendations ie a replacement unit or Helmet lights etc.I ride mainly at night and have a stock headlight. I used to have a 10 watt Mtn. bike headlight I would wear on my helmut but it slipped off and got eaten by my rear sprocket lost forever. A helmut light is key to riding at night so you can point to see where you are gonna go and helps when going over logs. I was able to ride a gear higher with the helmut light too. I think the next one I get will be the double light by I think is Night Sun one is 10 watts and the other is 15 watts and I'll wing nut it on to my visor this time. It would be nice to have a brighter headlight too.,,,
