    Check the wire TO the spark plug. It could have a loose connection.

I have a1984 vf1100s v65 sabre i was riding along and lost power the bike continued to run on like half power then died completely. the following morning it did restart. i put a house hold electrical...

Hi, Mrklave and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test, your battery may show 12.5 volts but has little or zero amps and must be replaced.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting, leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or CDI or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

2007 nissan titan turns over but wont start no spark to the plugs .

The problem could be in the spark plugs. Usually if just one of the spark plugs is not producing the spark needed, the engine would still start. It may run rough, but will still start. If none of the spark plugs are producing a spark (or firing) then this could be the culprit.The spark plugs gets power to spark from coil packs.So check the coil pack first.If the coil pack checked ok then its faulty spark plugs causing this problem.Also remove the spark plug connection and clean it and reconnect it and recheck.In some cases this helps. ---------------That's it.

Starting and stay running


The 'wire to the coil' that you mentioned could be the problem! (They ain't meant to be taken apart.)

You see, these things are built and operate as a unit, and must be replaced as such.....

Go to a bike wreckers (dismantlers) and source yourself another coil and spark plug lead assembly and refit.

Then, as long as you have a good battery, spark at the plug, and fuel, the old thang should fire up and run OK......

Good luck,'ve got a groovy little bike there. :oD

Bike wont start

I would check for compression on the cylinders. a engine has to have fuel,fire and compression or it wont run. Check the specs to get the operable compression levels.

Without CKP sensor,will a bike start? if there is no firing in the spark plug,what are the reason of this?

Without a fully operational Crank Position Sensor a bike will not start. The CKP sends a signal to the bikes ECU (also known as CDI, this is the bikes "computer") telling it that the pistons are in the correct place and the spark plug needs to fire. The ECU processes this information and sends a signal to the Ignition Coils, this then causes the spark plugs to fire. Without the CKP sensor the ECU doesnt know when to tell the coils to fire the plugs.

If you are not getting any spark either:
1. HT leads or spark plugs are faulty.
2. Coils are faulty, use a multimeter to check the resistance across the primary and secondary windings. Should be (from memory) around 3000ohms for primary and 30,000ohms for secondary.
3. CKP sensor is faulty. Use a multimeter to check the resistance of the coil windings. From memory should be about 300 - 500 ohms.
4. A wire is shorting out somewhere, or there is a bad ground conection.
5. If none of these is faulty then your ECU is probably the culprit. Sadly the only way to test an ECU is by swapping it out with a known good one.

I have a 1990 GSXR 750 that will not sart

check to see if you have power ( + ) running were it suppose to go ,then check your ( - ) to see if everything is tight . Look for burnt wires , or check your fuses. check out the coils,and there sparkplug wires,and also the wires running to the coils.See if you got to replace some ( burnt out parts) use a tester to see if you got fire running to were it suppose to go.check GAS flow.

Cylinder not firing

Could be somthing to do with remote start but check
your coils to see if they are both good. Use multimeter.
ohm out the coils for arround 12 v and see if they are good. then proceed form there.
