Bike has no spark 1978 xr250 honda


This can be one of five things,

1: The coil is bad
2: The cdi is bad
3: The stator
4: The stator pickup
5: Bad plug

Use a spark plug tester on the coil to test for current, if it doesn't have current to the plug work your way backwards toward the stator, testing each item for current in and out.

I've checked with an Ohm meter and have continuity


If you are checking from one of the stator prongs to engine ground and you get continuity, your stator is bad. It would probably be a good idea to replace the regulator. I think Harley sells a kit that is priced fairly reasonable. But, check the rotor. I've seen one rotor that didn't have any magnetism in it. That's right, It was a genuine Harley part and the rotor had no magnetism in it. It was a friend of mine that put the stator in another guy's bike but it wouldn't charge. I checked everything and found nothing wrong except no output. Pulled it down and that's what we found. We simply put the guy's old rotor on it and it worked fine.

Good Luck

1979 xlch sportster....getting power to everything but no spark out of coil. brand new coil and tested to be good. anything helps. this bike has kickstart only and has dyna s electronic ignition. plz help


Take the plugs out of the heads, put them back in the wires, and lay the plugs on the heads so that they have a good ground. Turn the ignition on and then turn it back off. When you turn the ignition switch off, you should see a spark. If you do, then something is wrong with the ignition unit. If you do not see a spark, you have a bad coil or a wiring problem. You can also do this test by "hot wiring" the coil. Any tine you put 12 volts to the coil then stop it, you should get a spark.

Good luck

Battery wont hold a charge. put new battery same problem. when i recharge it battery is drained after roughly 5 starts.


stator needs to be replaced, works just like a alternator, if you ever banged it or dropped the bike then you have a busted stator. easy to fix but might run you about $70-$90 bucks for a new one.

2003 sportsman 700. no spark at plug. off/ run switch is in run position. why no spark?


Have you been running the bike with a low battery? Have you changed the spark plug? Have you checked that a fuse isn't blown? Check these items if all is good, chances are that the pulse coil or pick-up coil is shot, could also be the stator. Have someone who knows how to check it for hons of resistance.

1979 honda cbx 6 cylinder, no power at 1 coil. no


If you mean no output power, coil is bad. If you mean no input power 12v, there is a fault in the wiring. If you mean no signal from stator, wiring problem as well
