Hey,

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, mate....you've got a groovy little bike there. :oD

Weak fire on pocket bike


Hi, I do a lot with these bikes, I think if you are getting a weak spark there is a couple things to check. First, do you understand how it builds the power to create the spark? The magnet in the flywheel has to be very close to the magnito or coil, if the gap is too much it will cause a weak spark, if the magnet is weak, weak spark, if the coil is shorting internally, weak spark. If the plug wire is damaged, weak spark. I hope this helps you.

Recently purchase a non running 03' 883cc. with 10k. miles, I change plugs, wires, ign. coil, cleaned the carb. replace all fuses, main fuse, starter relay, new battery fully charged, checked all wires...


What the VOS does is controls spark advance, it will NOT cause the spark plug to not fire.

You said no spark.
I assume at spark plug?

Did you check for fire at coil?
When you replaced coil, did you wire it correctly?
Did you use the right coil? Different Harleys require different Ohm coils.

If all above is good, follow wiring back to find why no fire.

No spark to rear cylinders runs good and then runs on one cylinder 1986 honda shadow 1100


try switching the position of the two coils, the plug wires will unscrew off of the coils and that way you dont have to pull the spark plug wires too,(be sure and change the 2 wire couplers too) if your front cylinder stops firing you know its the coil, if the back cylinder still doesn't fire then your coil is good and you either have a bad #2 spark unit or a bad crank pulse generator.

Hi problem with my gsxr 400 replaced the engine but the engine was running before i transplanted it into new bike now the engine will not start it is sparking and when u put petrol or easy start into the...


there is not too many combinations of firing order to check.
one coil fires plug 1 and 4
the other coil fires 2 and 3
just turn the flywheel past the pick up for 1,4 and make sure the coils are correct
the only other things that could happen in a straight engine swap are exhaust and inlet gasket leaks and incorrect fuel line , vacumn hose.
I assume all the wiring is replaced in the correct plugs

Xs750 what is the firing order


There is no firing order. Your bike has a coil that fires on both the compression stroke and the exhaust stroke (also called a wasted spark). Therefore either plug wire can go on either cylinder and the bike should run the same.On four cylinder bikes this meant that you could run four plugs using only two coils and two sets of points instead of four coils and four points.If the bike is running poorly try new spark plugs and new spark plug caps first(start with the cheap stuff). Next check the actual coil and pulse pick up or points. You may have to replace the coil only because the wires are cracked shorting.

Take the round cover off the right side of the cam cover above the oil filter and try starting the bike - it has a small red led that flashes every time it sparks. if it doesn't flash - change it. it is bad.

Hi, I have a 1998 cbr 600f3. There are 2 coils on this bike for 4 cylinders and two wires coming in and 2 coming out(spark plug wires going out). I can only get one side of both coils to fire so the bike...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On the 2 ignition coils:
  • two wires coming in - black/white carries/supplies IGN + 12 to both coils and the ignition control module. Coil1 (left) is connected to the ICM by the yellow/blue wire while coil2 (right) is connected through the blue/yellow wire;
  • 2 coming out - left coil powers 1 & 4 while right coil powers 2 & 3;
  • 1 &4 will fire together; so with 2 &3.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
