Malaguti grizzly 10 no spark

I would recommend that you check the main fuses located somewhere near or behind the sidecovers on either side of the motorcycle, If that is unsuccessful...You know, fuses are okay looking, then at that point check the electrolytic acid level in the battery. (usually located under the seat or behind the sidecovers as well). If the battery acid level is too low the engine will not run properly and if it is super low you will not even have enough energy to create a spark.

Good Luck my friend,

Runs then sputters and wont start

you might need to clean you stator(altinator) or maybe get a new one for you spark to work right if you have already changed the coil.also bad gas can do it also or low fuel.when the tank is low put your bike gas valve on reserve.A friends bike was running badly and all i did was put it on reserve cause the tank was low and the bike ran great after that.

1979 Yamaha TT500 old and rusty

-Take the spark plug out of it and squirt some oil down into the piston and let it sit for a week or so.
-Lubricate rusty components with wd-40.
-Take the carb off and clean well , buy a carb kit and replace the seals and gaskets as well as the needle and seat valve, this all come with the kit.
-Clean the fuel tank and check all lines for cracks.
-Check all the vacuum lines for cracks or collapsed line, replace if necessary.
-Clean all wiring connections throughly.
-Replace the spark plug with a new one, and change the oil in the crank.
This should give you a good indication if it will run or not.
Good luck.

Tt500 wireing

I have edited the picture to show what to do.
  1. The power wire from the generator is wired to the points wire.
  2. The points wire and generator wire are wire to the coil +
  3. The coil is frame grounded when mounted.

Note:You may need to try each of the 2 wires from the generator(try one and if it doesn't run or run right,try the other wire,Since the energize at different times)
