Question about 2003 Yamaha TT-R 225
I have a 2003 Yamaha TTR225, and i have had some problems starting it up. (its electric start). I just bought it a while ago from someone who didn't ride it around much at all, so it sat around a lot. After i bought it, i got a new battery for it, and then it began to start up fine. after about a week of riding it a good bit, i was riding around and i cut the bike off. after a couple of minutes, i tried to start it up agian. It was cranking fine, but it wasn't firing at all. So i unplugged the spark plug to see what it sounded like when i cranked it. It sounded the exact same as when i had it on. So, i'm concluding that the bike isn't getting a spark (the spark plug is brand new). I took the bike apart a little bit and the cord from the spark plug runs up to a little cylinder type thing ( i think it is the coil, but im not sure) could that have gone bad, and what else are my likely problems?
The cylinder is the coil. It might be bad but it is expensive and you would not replace it till you know for sure there is no spark. You can take the plug out and then put it on the wire and ground it against the engine while a friend cranks the starter. Look for the spark flash. Make sure the kill switch is in the "on" position.
If that shows a spark then you will need to move into a different line of troubleshooting. I always recommend that people buy a Clymer manual.
