First remove the lead for #3 and #4 cylinder and check for spark on both as there are 2 coils. If no spark on either then it could be a number of ings: a) loose, bad, damaged wire/ connections b) faulty ignition or stop switch c) faulty nuetral or sidestand switch d) faulty pulser coil e) faulty high tension coils f) faulty spark unit

In my experience the pulser coils are the weak link. After checking the obvious check the pulser coils...
remove fuel tank, disconnect the red 4 pin block connector, with a multi meter set to ohmsx100 check the resistence between the white wire/ yellow stripe and the yellow wire and between the white wire/ blue stripe and blue wire.
both readings should be between 450 and 550 ohms at room temperature
if either of your measurements vary greatly from those values then replace the pulser coils.

I just bought a used 2002 honda cbr 954 rr. i cleaned the spark plugs about a month ago and it started up and ran fine. but now i cant get it to run no longer than a few seconds. any ideas what the problem...

Was the bike running fine before you cleaned them? If your bike won't stay running, you might need to adjust your idle. There is a black round dial on the left side next to the stator (big round circular housing) turn it so the fuel is increased.

No spark from spark plug

New Saw? Warranty time
Electronic ignition? Replace entire module. Pinched wire to metal case part for ignition switch. Permanently shorted ignition switch--replace.

Engine runs rough. Engine light on.

Try checking the spark plug, and the spark wires, if that doesnt clear things up then try replacing the roter under the distributor cap and check the cap for any corrosen

CBR 250 not starting

Sound like you have a fuel problem.Turn the key without starting the bike listen for a slight buzzing noise it will come from where the end of the tank and the seat meet this is the fuel pump priming if you can not hear anything then most likely your fuel pump is not working.Your carbi may have grit in a jet a carbi cleaner can help.
I hope this helps!
