This is going to sound bad but some where you have lost power to the coils pull every thing back apart and the first thing i would do is look at the tach you changed no singal i bet when you are cranking the mtr over, see if the tach show rpm while cranking . if it dose not install your oem tach good luck kdc744

Check the door sensors. They each have a small light that must be on and not flickering. They must be pointed at one another to work properly. Tweak them if necessary. If you can't get both lights to come on you most likely have a bad sensor.

No response to remote on Liftmaster 1/3 HP model # 1245R

It has probablly lost sync.

Follow the procedure to reload the codes. One usually has to hit a reset button on the head and then follow a sequence to sync your remote to the head.

You may have disconnected a wire somewhere or damaged a wire, check all wire connections if all are good pull a spark plug out connect it to the plug wire turn bike over to check for the presence of spark if spark is present reinstall plug. The bike may be flooded if so give the bike full throttle while turning over and as it starts don't let up on the throttle until the rpm climbs up to approx. 5,000 rpm.
