Ignition Coil for Honda 125 CM /84

Hi, I have motobike Honda 125 CM from 1984. The oryginal Ignition Coil (fl807 6v 08 TEI/twin) is 6v during web serch for my motobike in that age range I've found dedicated igniton coil is 12v. Can some of you answer my questions:
1. I can't find excatlly the same ignition coil, can I use any 6v/twin ignition coil for my bike? Can be this one?

2. What kind of condenser should I purchase - 6v?

Thanks a lot for you time I know this questions are basic but anyway thank you. Have nice day!
Jack

The 12v coil on a 6v system will only give a weak spark at best. The coil in the photo should work very well assuming the wires are long enough. Any 6v twin coil should work. If you fit another coil and the bike has spark but will not start, swap the wires at the points. Don't purchase a condenser unless the old one has gone bad. If needed, get a 6v condenser matching the old one.

1982 honda CM 125 Custom runs on one cylinder.


Hi, Angela you need "FIVE" things in order for a cylinder to run properly:
1. FUEL: in order to validate your not getting fuel spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner and hit the starter button, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you know you have a fuel delivery issue. Multi carb banks should be bench "SYNC"
2. SPARK: remove the spark plug and with it connected to the spark plug cable ground the threads to something metal you should see a bluish white spark if not you have a faulty spark plug, spark plug cable, ignition coil, condenser, CKP, ECM, sensor or the wiring in between.
3. COMPRESSION: you must have at least 80-100 PSI for most bikes, multi-cylinder engines should be within 10-15% of each other if not perform a leak down test you may have a burnt or bent valve or hole in the piston or broken rings.
4. CAM TIMING: confirm your timing marks are aligned to see if the cam chain or adjuster are worn out and the chain has skipped a couple teeth.
5. IGNITION TIMING: on older bikes check to see if your points have not closed up, timing plate has not become loose and confirm with a timing light for proper retard and advance functions, on newer bikes where timing is controlled by an ECM and is nonadjustable check you CKP, TPS, MAP, O2, sensor or its counterpart for integrity.

2000 Honda CM 125 C weak spark


Hi, Mario67 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 pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
11. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Honda Varadero 125. Not starting.


Hi !
First check if the current is coming from ignition coil....
If YES ... then the spark plug is burnt(shorted) Get new plugs.
If NO... then there could be a problem with the ignition coil itself Or the coil in the dynamo is burnt.... Regards
