    I replaced the spark plug and now I can't even get it to start. It ran fine for about an hour, no problems other than no lights. I took it home and tried to start it up about an hour later and nothing. I can't even get it to kick over. I replaced the spark plug twice, replaced the inline fuel filter, cleaned the carb twice, cleaned the kill switch one the handle bars, cleaned the electrical contacts on all of the wiring on the bike, took off the coil, and other parts and cleaned the contacts on all the places that I could find on any wiring. I still can not get it to run. It ran GREAT for hours, started on the first two kicks and after it warmed up would idel on it's own. I don't understand what happened. If you think that you can help, I would be eternally grateful to you. The bike only has 2500 miles on it. Everything seems to be original on it. It even has the original tools under the seat. Thank You for your time.

1983 XT 250 no spark


Hi, Phillips630 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test, your battery may show 12.5 volts or more but has little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this category 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 CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset
