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.

Why a weak spark 1987 dodge 5.9 v8


this can be caused by a weak battery check battery and charging system to verify a good working system. it could also be a weak coil not being able to supply enough output voltage for the ignition system. you don`t say if its weak coming out of the coil or at the plugs. if spark is weak at the plugs it could be a bad cap/rotor, ignition wires. it could also be an ignition module problem or pick-up coil in the distributor.

Weak spark at plug


Check to see haw strong the spark is coming out the dist cap. If it is weak there, possible bad cap/rotor/coil/ module. Make sure the wire from the coil to the cap is good.

I tried using quick start on it, but all that did was make it sputter a bit, so I am assuming that the fuel is not reaching the cylinders, anyone have any ideas?


1) Check for spark remove one of the plugs, connect the plug wire to it and ground spark plug base to a good ground , such as the cylinder head , position the plug so you can see the electrodes , crank the engine over , a fat blue spark should be evident. 2)If the spark is good , check for one or more of the following possible malfunctions 1) Obstructed fuel line or filter.2) leaking head gasket(s)3) low compression. If the spark is not good, check one or more of the following a) Weak ignition coil(s) b) Weak CDI unit. c)Loose electrical connections. d) Dirty electrical connections. e)Loose or broken ignition coil ground wire. f) Broken or shorted high tension lead to the spark plug. Difficulty in starting. Check for fouled spark plugs, Improperly adjusted choke, contaminated fuel system, improperly adjusted carburetor,weak ignition unit,weak ignition coil (s), poor compression

Weak spark,willnot start,changed plug


A weak spark can be attributed to a number of issue:
1. Wire from the magnetto to the spark plug is saturated with oil (clean well with degreaser)
2. Spark plug cap deteriorated. (most are not easily replaceable)
3. Spark plug fouled (insure you are using new)
4. Significant build up of rust on the flywheel (lightly sand rust off)
5. Bad Magnetto or CDI (especially if it has gotten wet or is cracked.) Note: (Cost typically prohibitive for replacement).
6. Spark plug gap significantly out of specs. (Regap to specs, retry)

If you are certain you have a weak spark, these are typical causes. Often, more likely problem is carburation, fuel filter and/or fuel lines - which are much easier and less expensive fixes! Hope for the fuel lines being cracked...Good luck :)

Weak spark on one side. When I test the plug on the block I can't even see it. While riding it seems to stop all together.


You don't say what make or model. try new spark plug and new spark plug caps. the spark plug caps on most machines are 5000 ohm caps and can be purchased for about $ 5 ( NGK brand) try this first. Always start with the cheap stuff first.

I have a 1985 honda atc 200s with a very weak spark which is white instead of blue. What could the problem be? And how do i troubleshoot all options to find the exact problem? Please help


Could be a number of reasons.

Weak battery
Weak alternator
Weak coil,
Weak leads
Bad connections to any of the above. Clean and grease with Vaseline Petroleum Jelly (which conducts electricity).

first thing to check though is that the points (if the bike/canoe has points and not CDi) are clean, flat and not worn down.

Other reasons concerning spark plugs, gaps too large or too narrow, wrong spark plug, old spark plug?

The title of your problem says 'Canoes', so if that is the case, please disregard! I didn't know Honda made powered canoes?
