Question about 1997 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja

1 Answer

No spark My 1995 Ninja zx6 has no spark. i seem to not be getting power to one of the coils. i replaced the cdi and still nothing, i tested the coils and they tested good. what i need to know is what sends the power to the coils to give spark. i dont have any specs or numbers for voltage or anything.

1988 Kawasaki Ninja 250r right side coil has no spark

Hi, James 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. Faulty run/off switch
11. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
12. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

No Spark, No Power coming from CDI to coil

Check the wiring on the connector plugs make sure all the wires are the same color on both sides, red to red blue to blue and so on. I had the same problem After replacing a stator and just plugging it in,after two weeks a new cdi and coil i noticed there were two wires transposed.

My 1995 yamaha vmax motorcycle starts fine. when it warms up after a bit it shuts down. the shop is puzzled. they said that all 4 coils test out fine but when it is warm they all 4 just stop. no spark goes...

have them test the cdi box. it is your electronic controler for your ingnition timeing. it could be getting hot and shuting down. when it shuts down. the can take a wire from the negative side of the coil and ground it to the frame touching it and letting go of it instintly and if it sparks its not the coils it will be the cdi box or something to do with the electronic pickups in the motor that gives the signal to the cdi. that it is the correct time to trigger firing. hope this helps out.

Blowing ignitor [cdi]

Hi, Gemmaj_p123 what is your ignition fuse doing, if your blowing CDI's then I would look for a short coming from the CDI on it's way to the coils, cracked or worn or chafed wiring for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Kawasaki zx 6r, no ignition spark from plugs. Coils get 12 v. it seems that cdi is working as griund seems to be cut when trying to star. I have checked the plugs against motor and frame.

check your spark plugs leads
the CDI unit need to be tested for power and make sure that no wires are touching the frame as this could stop your ignition .
the cut off switch could be faulty too .
check all power sources around your motor as a wire could easely burned and earth itself .

Probably a gas delivery problem to the carbs. Check the lines and check for a filter in the line or at the carbs. Something is stopped up and it can't get enough gas to go any rpms.
