Question about 2005 kawasaki EL 125 Eliminator
I replaced the battery turned the key all lights are working but bike will not even turn over? bumped bike again but would not start as if there was no spark? any help would be great hoping it's some thing simple as always :-)
On some Kawasaki models, there is a circuit board underneath the fuse holder where some of the solder would require re-soldering. There would also be small relays for ignition interlock (neutral, sidestand, clutch and others) that would require contact cleaning. These interlocks provide the conditional switching of the IGN B+12 to the CDI. If you have confirmed that all the wires to the battery, the starting solenoid are connected, then this might be worth the effort of looking into.
Alternately, if when the battery was removed, the starting solenoid connector was also removed, it is likely that the big terminals of the starting solenoid were wired wrong. Please confirm that the terminal marked "S" goes to the starting motor and the terminal marked "B" goes to the battery's B + terminal.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
