Question about 1976 kawasaki Z 750

4 Answers

I have a pulse going to one coil and not the other, i have checked cables and connectors, it cannot be a faulty kill switch as it would affect other coil, i have changed IG Igniter with another used one, could it be where the pulse gets picked up, there are not points, what else am i missing

    i have checked wiring for damage, and there is not water intrusion or damage, is there a way of testing the stator

  • dorsetnomad Mar 09, 2009

    i dont think the coil is the problem as i do not even get a pulse to it, if i got the pulse to the coil i would then know it was a coil problem.....i am also told that the Igniter cannot be tested by three local motorcycle mechanics.

  • dorsetnomad Mar 09, 2009

    the bike has not been started, i just picked up less than a week ago, it was stored under a deck for a year maybe two, was told it was running well then (yeah right) the connections all look good, there are two pick ups opposite each other with two wires, i would like to know if i can check these, i know one is working but cannot decide if the other does, can i do some fancy wire swapping to test this theory out??

The device that picks up the coil pulse is the stator, which is mounted where the points would be in older bikes, that may be the problem, check for wiring damage water intrusion in all ignition related connectors ans esp to the starter pick up plate.

    yes with an ohm meter, but I am sure that is the problem, why because it is the part that gets the most direct engine vibration, I know this 1st hand. Why the Thanks for trying, u haven't done a test yet?

1400 intruder no fire to the coil pack front cylinder coil is good stater is OK fuses good new pulse good .is the cdi out


Hi, Earl and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose, check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil, pick up coil, trigger coil or CDI box testing needs to be checked with an ohmmeter at 70 degrees Fahrenheit
7. Faulty safety switches clutch, kickstand, neutral, off/on etc.
8. Faulty ignition switch.

I have no spark on an 86 kx125 upon reassembly.


Hi, Kurt and Tammy some of the following may not apply as this directed mainly towards Harleys what you need is a wiring diagram for your bike which is in the free service manual listed below it sounds like you may have a pinched wire or faulty wire connector or not wired correctly in the ignition circuit, if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in the head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Hi, Gene if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in the head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:

Why is my 97 Honda 4 wheeler not getting fire


There are three items that are connected together needed to create spark on your 1997 Honda 4-wheeler, regardless of which model it is.
Before we go through a checklist of these three important parts, look for a black wire with a white stripe that runs to the ignition switch and kill button from the CDI box. Disconnect this wire before it gets to the ignition switch and kill button, then check for spark. The most likely cause is a broken kill switch on the handlebar, or shorted ignition switch. Such a condition grounds this wire and kills the spark.
If this test did not restore the spark, continue reading...
Here is what is required to create a spark.

First, the alternator has one coil which generates a high voltage--about 125 Volts AC for the CDI ignitor box.

Second, there is a pulse voltage generated once every revolution of the engine that goes to the CDI box. This pulse causes the CDI to dump its stored energy from the 125 volt line into the primary of the ignition coil.

Third, If the two connections of the wire that runs from the CDI to the Coil are BOTH SHINY clean, the ignition coil will generate a spark.

If any one of these 3 don't happen, the spark will go away. Of these three, item 3 -- one or two tarnished and/or dirty connectors -- is the most likely cause. Just an added resistance of 0.3 Ohms or more in the CDI to Coil connections will cause the ignition to fail. No other wires have to be this clean.

No spark


Check the side stand kill switch if your bike has one. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the handlebar kill switch on? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Install new spark plug.

If that doesn't do it, check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop. You can screw up a CDI unit checking it yourself.
