Question about Power Motorcycles

I have a power craft pc 1050 that won't start. It has been stood for a couple of years. I have traced back and there is no spark from the coil. How do I check the magneto. Or is it be something else.

Check the magneto with a meter that tests ohms. http://www.smallengineadvicefordummies.com/home/home/how-to-test-a-coil

Backfires may indicate that a valve is sticking open, so that you are not getting compression. I am assuming that no repairs or adjustments were done which might have messed up the timing of valves or ignition.

SOURCE: 2006 hammer turns over won,t

Did you use fuel stabilzer when you stored the bike? If not your fuel is probably bad. You will have to drain the old fuel and introduce fresh fuel. Use 2 ounces of sea foam to every gallon of fuel. This will help get out any junk from the old fuel. You may get a light puff of blue smoke when starting the bike while the sea foam is onboard but this is normal.

SOURCE: xt 500 has weak spark(flywheel

It sounds to me that you have done most all of what is needed. Just take some fine sandpaper to the magnets in the flywheel. After sanding, wipe it clean, then spray it with carb cleaner to remove any possible residue. Now give the magnets a spray coating of clear polyurethane coating. The flywheel will never rust again. Replace the source coil and install a new spark plug. A plug that is carboned up can lessen spark voltage. The last item is the battery. A weak one can rob power. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I have a 1965 elcamino, not getting spark at plugs swapped plugs wires coil, distributor, won't start! Ideas?


Check power and ground at the coil. If there isn't any power there you will need to trace them both back to find the problem. If you have power at the coil, does the coil provide power to the distributor? If yes the either cap, points or distributor is bad. Check gap on points. Make sure point contacts are clean. Does the internals of the distributor turn when engine is turned over? All this has to work correctly for you to get spark.

Won't start


Check for power on the small wire at the starter with the key in the crank position. If there is no power than you will need to trace the circuit. A Year, make, model, and engine size would help a lot!!

Have no spark motor turn over but no spark have power to the coil pack but not getting power out ?


Depending on the make model and year, you may have a distributor or a cam and crank sensor that helps fire the coil. Something has to provide a ground signal to the coil to fire it.
You may need a book to help trace the wiring and test the other components.

I recently bought a 2002 kymco zing 125 ,it has been stood for a couple of years and not started.i have replaced the coil and new battery and also the cdi unit,it has had a new spark plug too and the carb...


You should replace the fuel also as fuel deteriorates over time.Drain the tank and replace with new fuel.Also drain the carb.as it will still have old fuel in it.

2 year old Jonway 125cc bike cuts out and kickstart fails


check first if spark plug working you can see spark light on it upon kickstart. then proceed with the gas carburetor if gas intake working and not stuck. if no power goes to spark plug trace the source. first the cdi then the ignition coil and the voltage regulator.
