It sounds like you have a poor ground connection. You'll have to disassemble and check the wiring harness for broken wires, start up near the ignition switch or around anything that is no longer stock on the bike (like aftermarket turn signals, fuel nanny, power commander, etc.)

Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you checked the last 10 Amps fuse? Additionally, check the fuse holder for signs of pitting, burns, corrosion or looseness. If a nogo, check/follow the orange/green wire (in some versions) from the fusebox.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

You checked the solenoid? (ont post hot all the time - the other post only hot when you press the start switch) Check the low volt wires from battery to solenoid and solenoid to switch and from switch to ground.

I think you will find your trouble.

Please let me know what happens.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

1983 yamaha xj 650 no spark already changed the cdi coil plugs wires and mag pick up what next?


  • Do you see spark? If not, check the side stand kill switch. 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 side stand kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it.
  • Is the handlebar kill switch on? Is it shorted out?
  • Are you getting power to the coils?
  • Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery.
  • Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. 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 or side casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.

Yamaha trx850 bike stopped then restarted no problem following week stopped again this time would not restart--no spark at all been in bike shop for 2 weeks they cant find anything wrong


If they find nothing wrong then the problem is obviously intermittent and can be very hard to find. Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. 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 wire connection.

The usual source of intermittent loss of spark is the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. Check for a broken wire at the switch or coupler. Get a service manual and check out the electrical section. Some bikes have a diode controller integrated into the turn signal relay. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. If that doesn’t work, check out the relay.The dealer would / should have load tested the various ignition components. I will assume the ignition system is okay. Check the battery and fuses. Install a new set of stock spark plugs.

The engine do not start. It is no sparks.


Check the fuses. Next, check for spark but with a new spark plug. How good is the battery? Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.

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.

I have a YFM 200 (four wheeler) and am getting no spark. Have changed the plug, it turns over well, where do I go now? I have a 1986 version. Sorry, can't find this under "choose product category", but...


Check the fuses. Next, check for spark but with a new spark plug. How good is the battery? "Some juice" does not always translate into having enough juice for a spark. Fill the battery cells with water covering the battery plates. Jump start from your car battery. Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Tip-over kill switch on your bike? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.

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.

Yamaha big bear no spark


I'm not familiar with all quads and all the kill switch locations. Does it have a tip-over kill switch? Is it working? Is the quad in neutral? Is the neutral light on? Many engines will not spark if the neutral light is not on. Are the headlights off when starting?

How good is your battery? A low battery can kill spark. Test for spark by grounding the threads of the plug against the cylinder. Have a friend kick the bike while you watch for spark. Assuming no spark, then check all the kill switches with an Ohmmeter to be sure each switch is working properly. Sometimes a switch goes bad. Try disconnecting all kill switches then check spark.

Check the wiring harness, even under the gas tank and seat. Are all the connectors clean and with a tight connection? Any abraded wires? Check the ignition switch also. The switch can go bad as well. Are the flywheel coils good > is the battery getting a charge?

Still no spark? If CDI then get it checked.
If points then file or replace them along with a new condensor and reset the gap then time the engine. >> I hope this helps.
