Question about 1981 Yamaha XJ 650
I have a 81 yamaha virago xv750. i tried to replace the right side controls( kill switch and starter button) now i can't get any spark. i replaced the coils ,plugs, and wires. this was not the problem. i tried wiring in the old kill switch because the problem came to be when i changed it out. please help.
Kill switch works one of two ways. Either it grounds you out, killing the spark or it disconnects a circuit shuttig ignition off. So...forget the switch for a moment and wrap the two wires together, try starting, nothing ? then separate the two wires and make sure they are not touching any metal parts, try starting again.....now you have eliminated the switch as your problem.....cap off the wires and don't hook them to the switch if your bike is now running....Good luck to you friend....tim
