Hi Anonymous, remove spark plug wires off of plugs, leave spark plugs in heads. Use a 3rd known good spark plug to check for spark.
Insert 3rd spark plug into any spark plug wire, ground the threads on bare metal like the edge a cylinder fin. Turn ignition switch on and make sure run/stop switch is in run position and the bike is in nuetral. Hit the starter button and watch for spark. Good luck

Why wont 1 spark plug fire


ok did you check to see if the spark plug wire is good and if it is good take out the spark plug and put it on the spark plug wire that its not firing on if it fire at the spark plug then you should do a compression test if the compression is bad you may have a burn valve or something and that would be what causing the misfire

Po306 new intake gaskets smoke test compression test leak down test new plugs wires tested injectors swapped injectors checked ijjector wiring with noid still when you pull off no 6 wire it changes nothing...


Code 306 means cylinder 6 is not producing power. And as you know it takes fuel, spark, and compression at the right time to make power.
Generally, if the injector is firing at the right time the spark plug should be firing as well.
Are you sure the plug is firing ? And is it possible injector 6 has no fuel to spray ?

The #1 spark plug not firing, what can the problem be


If it's only the one spark plug not firing, try replacing the high voltage ignition wire (or swapping it with another one just for a test). It could also be a broken spark plug, or a failed (fouled) spark plug. It could also be a bad distributor cap.

Engine light keeps comeing on mecanic change o2 senser worked for half hour came back on cods keep saying its miss fireing have had this problem for a month know


Start Small work to Big = Saved Money!
The Code(s) should be telling the specific cylinder(s) that are misfiring. Do you know waht the code is?
Target those cylinders 1st before testing the unaffected cylinders.
The following should isolate the problem(s).
1. Spark plugs - take out-reconnect back to wires and test spark plugs for getting sparks. If none: Don't replace them yet. GO TO 2. If the spark plugs are worn, dirty them replace them.
2. Remove spark plugs form end of ignition wires and test for spark from the wire. If none: Don't replace them yet. GO TO 3.
3. Remove the wires from the coil connection and test the coil for spark for each cylinder. If none: Don't replace it yet.
4. Test each spark plug and wires this way.
5. Coil Packs normally provide fire for 2-cylinders at the same time. The two are paired across from one another.
6. Test the coil for fire, amount of fire and if there is both cyclinders firing.
Misfire and the O2 Sensor got replaced??
Good Luck and get back with me if you need additional help or if this solved the problem.
