    Thanks anyway back to it then. F M X 650 very nicemagic for a yeti sob.sob. I have downloaded a manual now ill try again but basicly i am trying to find out how to (shush), warm wire it, as the clocks are missing no ign or lights, to see if the old heart is still worth saving,wires back to their original destinations? not just yet thats most of the problem, where? ta again im off ohms testing,

  • m_mcneley May 11, 2010

    A silly question, have you connected all the wires back to their original destinations via **** end connectors or what ever it takes? Have you checked all the grounds? Alot of times this is the simplest overlooked problem (even if it looks good it may not be and should be ohms tested for continuity). Some models have sensors/switches for break lite activation that will falter entire electrical systems when failed. Have you purchased a shop manual and ohms tested all electrical components (electrical tolerences and prociedures are in the electrical section as well as wireing scamatics? Your local dealer can get you the shop manual u need. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Sorry to hear of your nightmare with the recovered XT, i,m afraid your best bet is to download a manual, now there are a couple of sites out there that let you for free, usually in PDF format and obviously copies, but atleast you would then have a diagram. I can't help further as there may be other components needse or missing that are important even on a basic torky single like yours. I ride an FMX 650 but i like the Yammy and its alot lighter than mine. Best wishes - the Yeti - Hastings

If you have no spark at your plug, check your spark plug lead. Make sure it isn't broken or cracked. Check the wires from your coil make sure they aren't broken or cracked or have rusted connections. Scroll down this page and you will find a wiring diagram.

Why cant i start m1989 xt 600

Check valve clearance. If no clearance then not enough compression to start. Check for spark and that carb is supplying fuel.

TS 350 I have spark to the on/off switch, but no spark to the spark plug

The Short Circuit wires need to be looked at. Take off the cover over the flywheel. The two thin wires coming off of the coil need to be checked to see if there is a spot that has rubbed off and if there is a bare wire grounding out against the housing of the Cut Off Saw. May also check the coil wire going to the spark plug. This can also develop a spot that can ground out on the housing.

Wiring problem

Check to make sure the coil is getting 12 - 14 volts when the key is on if so replace the coil, you must also check the ground to ensure it has good continuity. Check it with a volt meter set on the OHM sign or the icon that looks like an Upside down U, when checking each side the reading should be pretty close to the # 0
