1 Answer

Plug change I'm interested in putting on new spark plug leads and plug caps on my '73 FZ 750 BV . Is there any way to run new leads or am I screwed b/c they seem to be attached to the coils be some sort of adhesive? What sort of wire and caps do I need, as far as resistance, and what not?

Most coils have the leads attached this way. The core of the lead is screwed onto the output pin of the coil, and then glued in to hold it tight. If you can break the bond and thread the lead off, it should become fairly clear.

What do u do when spark is weak on Yamaha blaster


Check battery voltage, remove spark plug suppressor cap from HT lead and see if spark is good by holding lead in a gloved hand and placing the lead end near the engine. If spark good get a new suppressor cap. Check the plug shows a good spark in the new cap by holding the screw thread to the engine. Poor spark change spark plug. If you get a poor spark from the HT lead then get the ignition coil checked.

I have a 94 gsxr 750. It has been running bad so my buddy had me spry water on the heade and cylinder # 4 is not fireing? any idea wht that means?


Check for spark on no4 plug...also check wether the plug is wet or dry when you remove it.
Dry and sparking means carb jets are blocked...
Wet and no spark means ht lead/plug cap or plug problem...change plug/unscrew cap from lead/cut a 1/4 inch off the lead and re-attatch.

Hi i have a yamaha fz 750 1987. there is no srark from either coils plus the bike was parked up for 2 years, can anyone help ?


its possible the cdi unit has failed or the hd leads/spark caps might be at fault, i had the same problem on a 1990 zzr600 it turned out to be spark caps where ao to high a resistance and causing no spark to pass. try this first and if still no spark id go with another cdi unit. hope this helps

1989 yamaha 750 v twin gas to carbs but not to heads


Hi Jilline,
If the carbs have gas and the gas dont get into the sparkplugs this means the main jet and the pilot jet are clogged.
You will have to clean the carbs!

Cheers.

Passing igniton


The best thing to do is to purchase a haynes or clymer manual for the bike and look up t he wiring diagram. The contain the colour codes and all other info you need. Another alternative would be to go to a dealer with the key code (normally embossed onto the lock) and get a key made. You are going to need a key if you're going to ride the bike anyway.
