If no pulse to coils then :-
1st try checking the resistance of the pick-up (pulsar) coil
Then check for continuity between the pick-up (pulsar) coil & the CDI unit & no continuity to earth
Then check for continuity between CDI & ignition coils
If all OK, unfortunately you have to suspect the CDI unit itself, which is a very expensive item (they can be repaired by some specialist electronic firms)

Ride safe
Please mark this as very helpful (if it has been!!)

blown fuse. ; is first, as per always.
2nd is scan it, did you scan it yet? that is always 2nd.
all efi engines, all ECU , all cut injectors for (noid lamp test dead?)
you said pulse,does that mean fuel pulse or electronic pulse to injector coil..... ? all injectors dead. or just 1. same for spark.
toss coin land, noid dead. all noids

Coil not firing

Either your coils are bad, or they are not getting power, or they are not getting a signal from the pulse coils.
Check ignition fuses
Check for ~12V at coils with ignition on.
Find pulse coil connector, check resistance across leads, should NOT be zero, and should not be infinite, consider about 100 ohms OK. (These wear out more often than the coils.)
If these three checks are OK, check the primary and secondary resistance of your coils. The resistance across the wire connections on the coil body should be about 10X the resistance from the spark plug wire to the coil connection.
All the best!

Pickup coil

Hi sugriva 108,

I saw your comment on one of my other posts;

yes, if you have battery power at the injector, but when you check for "pulse" from the computer on the ground side of the injector and the test light does not blink, the most common problem is a failed distributor module.
The pick-up coil in the distributor can cause the same symptom. It is the pickup coil that the injector and spark control signals originate from it is connected directly to the distributor module. The module is what sends the signal to the ecm for fuel control and timing advance and also pulses the ignition coil. Some people call the distributor module the "ignition control module". However, it affects fuel as well as ignition, which is why I refer to it as simply the "distributor module".

If the module is bad, you can replace only the distributor module. If the pickup coil is bad, you will either have to disassemble the entire distributor to replace the coil (the hard way) or you can simply buy a remanufactured distributor. It is less expensive to replace only the coil, but the coils usually go bad as a result of worn distributor bushings and it is usually more trouble than it is worth by the time you get everything right.

If you have lots of time to work with me and do some electrical testing, I can help you determine if it is the module or the coil. However, if you just want to get your vehicle running as fast as possible, the easiest and quickest way is to go ahead and get a remanufactured distributor and be done with it. They are not real expensive. AutoZone lists the distributor for your vehicle for under $100 (click link below)

Kawasaki zzr400 after wash

spary wd-40 on all electrical connection that was expossed to water liberally.....if that doesnt do it, then you probably got water in your pulse generator system coils and will have to pull the cover off and see if theres water in there.

Kawasaki zzr 1100 d model 19 97

find the coils and check the terminals with a tester to see if power is getting to them. if it is then it could be the coils or ht leads/ caps
if no power at coil then problem is between battery and coil or in the kill switch. check all ground / earth terminals you can find also
good luck, ride safe

My ZZR250 have no spark at all.

the spark is attributed to the coil. Use a multitester to test for continuity on the terminals. No response means no connection. Another way to test this without the use of a multitester is to switch the coil with a working coil. If it still doesnt have that spark but works with the other connection. then check the CDI.
