Question about 1997 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja
Hey, my name is ray, i am 17 years old. I had the same problem and if you have no spark, the wires that go from your ignition coil to your cdi box, if you have the box, may be fried or they might be slightly disconnected. there is a black wire that has a place that it has to plug in to the wires going to the cdi box. and if that is dirty or even remotly loose, then it will not give you any spark. or you may have to change spark pluggs.if you would tell me your bike then i could help you more man....... but i had to change spark plugs and my ignition coil and my sdi box. the other thing you might try is if you shut off switch is being goofy and it is not releasing so it is trying to kill your bike when you kick it over or turn it over.... please tell me your bike and i can help alot more....

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
To my understanding, the problem is 'no spark' yet the engine cranks. Generally, to consider are:
Offhand, the CDI would be the main suspect. Since the CDI is sealed, it is not possible to do component level checks. The only way to check if the CDI is good is to check the external connections; if they are good and yet no spark, then the CDI is bad.
How to check the above:
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
