Did the bike stop when riding?
if you have no spark to both cylinders it will be the CDI box , pick up coils or wiring
If you can give me more details on how/when this problem happened i can help more
if you get a small voltage(1-2v)from you pick-up coil then this should be ok,CDI requires to test your supply to it ie:12v etc and your voltage from pick-up and obviously supply out.If you have these voltages coming in and nothing out then your unit is U/S but one thing to make sure of is that you kill switch wire is not earthed out at the unit.

Rode my bike last summer, stopped at a place to eat and then my bike wont start. It turns over but no spark, what should I check first?


Hi, Harry and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test, your battery may show 12.5 volts but has little or zero amps and must be replaced.
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 CDI or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Hi, Ken and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
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 CDI box.
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, pick up coil, trigger coil or CDI box testing needs to be checked with an ohmmeter at 70 degrees Fahrenheit
7. Faulty safety switches clutch, kickstand, neutral, off/on etc.
8. Faulty ignition switch.

Hi, my zzr1100 will turn over but I have no spark, I have replaced both coils with new ones, replaced - fuse box, CDI,pickup coil and put new plugs in. Can you tell me what's up..... Thanks Anthony.


Hi, Anthony if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in the head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, 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.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Cold engin, started with ign switch, bike was in n, kick std up, kept idling out. Bat good, fuel good. won't even turn over. Manual said to ignite with throttle all the way open, tried that, no go


IF IT WONT TURN OVER, THE STARTER CLUTCH MAY BE DEFECTIVE!
IF IT TURNS BUT DOESN'T START,CHECK IF YOU HAVE POWER TO THE IGNITION COIL (power ON), FROM THERE TO THE SPARK PLUGS; LIKE TAKE ONE OUT LEAVE IT CONNECTED TO ITS WIRE LAYING ON THE ENGINE AND SEE IF IT SPARKS WHEN YOU DO THE START PROCEDURE. IF THERE IS NO SPARK, YOU KNOW THAT THE COIL IS BAD.

NO SPARK ON A 98 RM 125


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, test for the presence / absence of below described voltages using an analog / needle type voltmeter when starting the bike:
  • pulsating low AC voltage coming from the pickup coil;
  • pulsating voltage feeding the ignition coil.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Where to start was not getting spark constantly. turned on switch good spark then stops.changed stator got spark added oil no spark.getting fed up.


The poblem could be in the switch.You need to go through a series of steps to figure this out.1.primary power reaching ignition.
2. secondary (high voltage) spark generated from coil.
3. Constant spark to plug.
if your switch is corrupt the intermitent pimary is why you get spark sometimes.Try to eliminate the switch by jumping a wire to the coil primary, (leave the switch off) like your hot wirring the bike.I don't see the oil being involved at all.Take it from a guy who only had Kick Start bikes..It's Gas or Spark..Primary (battery) or secondary ( coil, wires.ect) be patient go slow keep a written record of your stepts.Good Luck.

1996 zx11 getting sprk to one bank only


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The voltage on the green wire must be pulsating when cranking/starting the bike, not steady. Confirm by similarly testing the voltage on the black wire on the left ignition coil. If the green still reads a constant voltage, then the CDI is faulty; to be more specific, most likely that the switching tansistor inside the CDI that drives the right ignition coil has shorted.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Kawazaki z400 1981 spark not enough,wiring a mess,need a diagram


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand a couple of possibilities considering it is a 1981 model:
  • check the usual, if it is not cranking, either weak battery or starter relay/solenoid. Another to consider is the starter motor or more specifically the carbon brushes;
  • ignition switch - check if the coils are getting +12 even when cranking;
  • CDI - check if the electronic ignition is getting +12 even when cranking;
  • if it is still a point type ignition, check the contact points, gap, dwell and the condenser;
  • compression test - worn out rings and/or intake valves would cause low compression making the bike hard if not impossible to start.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.
