2005 Yamaha WR450f no spark

The bike has BD kit had the gray wire mod. Now no spark after running fine. Everything points to CDI, dealer, and the mechanic says they never go bad without a good reason. Any ideas and where can I find a reasonably priced aftermarket one, OEM is quite pricey. thx

Hi, Sumobiker and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
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 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

SOURCE: R6 hesitation when starting out

Not often i see good questions like this. I would start with riching the carbs a bit. Another possible simple solution is to get your plugs check to make sure they are firing at full capacity, either one can cause the problems you have described. My first guess though would be the carbs, it sounds like the throttle is set a bit off to what it should be at. The fact that your bike runs fine otherwise also suggests this conclusion.

follow the plug wire back to the coil and see if there are any breaks, if not might switch coil with the other one and see if the other plug now misfires, if so replace the coil, most cdi problems are not intermittent, typically they either work, or they dont.

SOURCE: Yz250F has no spark

your pickup coil is most likely bad.there are five wires coming out of the left stator side. three yellow or white and the other two are the pickup coil. trace them to the connector under the seat or tank . unplug the connector and check for continuity, if none is there , the pickup coil it is bad. yamaha sells the stator and the pickup coil together. very costly , you can buy the pickup oil off ebay for about $30.00.
becareful as the screws holding the pickup coil in are lock tited in and need to be heated to remove them without damage.

goodluck, edbiggs

how long did you let it sit for with gas in the carbs, you may have clogged up your jets. after awile gas will break down and turn into varnish, if your bike trys to push the varnish through the system it will clog the jets. try to take off your seat then remove your plastic over the gas tank. remove the gas tank and you will see four bowls *silver ones right next to where the gas tank is on the carbs*. your bowls are in sets of two. there are drain screws on the bowls to remove the gas inside. remove the 16 screws holding the bowl onto the carb. *4 on each* inside you will see your floats and jets. carefully loosen the jets with a screw driver then finish unscrewing them by hand, they are brass and very soft. you should be able to hold up the jets to the light and see a small pin hole. if not get some carb cleaner and give them a squirt and blow them out. do not try to use anything to clean them out, they are very very sensitive and one knick will change the jet. after that i would spray some carb cleaner up the jet holes and try to clean them out also. if you have a compressor it would be wise to use that to blow out the gunk from the jet holes as well. after you run threw all 8 jets put them back together and see how it goes, if nothing you may have to check the jets again and if clogged again your carbs are gunked up and will need to be cleaned

Hi I own a Yamaha neos 4 and I am wondering if I change the Cdi to a Yamaha vitty 125 CDi will my bike work and run faster ?


Hi, Cameran I seriously doubt it CDI is for spark only a four cycle engine is nothing more than a mechanical air box it sucks in air/fuel and expels it as burnt exhaust the more air/fuel you can stuff in the engine and the faster you can expel it the more power and speed you can make start with a more free flowing air cleaner like a K&N and the same with an exhaust system like Yasuni or a big bore kit for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

I have a 84 rz 350 Yamaha bike starts and rides for a while then shuts off changed coil but bike does same problem can it be cdi unit or stator


Is battery voltage up to at least 12.5 volts? Have you checked ALL of the ground points related to ignition? Is there spark at the spark plugs when engine quits? When running, does the charge show at least 13.5 volts on battery? Have you had the CDI unit checked at a Yamaha dealer?

2005 wr450 exhaust pipe is red hot coming out of head


Hi, Anonymous your motorcycle is a high-performance dirt bike designed to run flat out that being said if you are strolling down some scenic trail at a slow speed or letting the bike idle for a few minutes your header pipe will turn cherry red, why you ask? It is not a street bike, it is designed for competition and weight is a major factor all necessary components are of the smallest and lightest design necessary to maintain performance under extreme conditions ie. small radiator and inside frame oil reservoir that doesn't get cooled, the majority of your riding needs to be at high speed.

Can't Start 1981 Yamaha SR250


find a running sr 250 and swop his cdi unit with yours if the bike runs, fine. if not put his cdi back in and try again. if the good bike now starts it will indicate that your cdi is faulty. the cdi is located under the tank inside the frame. don't buy a second hand cdi unless you can test it on a working bike. they are very expensive and you don't want to buy a dud

My 16 year old son replaced a 1980s Yamaha motorcycle 175 but it will not start. Thinks maybe something is grounding out? What do you think?


Hi, is this a points ignition or cdi, does he have a spark at the plug? An engine needs three things to run, spark,fuel, and compression, was the engine from the same year and model, maybe the engine has cdi, and the bike is fitted with a points ignition setup?

Took my bike out, WR450f 07 model, got to the shop...


If the battery is no good , this can cause some of the problems described, as the charge system tries to put out as much charge as it can, and not be able to charge the battery.
Try a volt meter on the battery, should be around 12v engine stopped and rise a couple of volts with the engine running.

Took my bike out, WR450f 07 model, got to the shop and had something to eat, came out and bike wouldn't go, headlight globe was blown, actually smashed, was no spark so replaced spark plug and checked...


My thoughts...Light globes are made to withstand voltages of less than 16 volts. So if you are finding your headlight globe burnt out, it's because the system voltage has exceeded this. Have your voltage regulator replaced which will remedy the problem. Over voltage will have an effect on other electronic components such as the CDI unit and wreck your battery too.

1983honda vf750s v45 sabra: one cylinder & tact die out. can happen at anytime, can last for a few seconds or long time.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the indulgence of Knight 007...

The tact dying is significant. It indicates that the pulse drive from the spark unit (CDI) towards the ignition coil has gone missing. The intermittent problem almost always points to a loose connection from the CDI connector to the terminal of the coil for the cylinder that misses. This would be the yellow wire of CDI to yellow wire of harness. This should not be mistaken for the yellow wire from the other CDI that connects to a blue wire that goes to the other ignition coil and fuel cutoff relay.

In some instances, the intermittent loose connection could be heat related and internal to the spark unit. A way to verify is to interchange the spark units where in the expected problem would be that the tach would no longer fail but the bike would suffer with fuel starvation.

Perhaps a wiring diagram would be of additional help.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
