My Yamaha XT 500 has a weak spark and wont start -If I use a BP8ES plug ther is some spark With a BP7ES nothing


Hi, Anonymous 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.

My 1979 KZ650 SR coil not getting power?


If I remember it shouldn't have points, when you had the carbs off did you unplug any of the harness, I beleive coils 1-4 and 2-3 are powered by the same source. also there should be a pick-up coil it's down on the stator. As for the fuel issuedid you have a bad needle and seat or something holding it slightly open causing it to over fuel/ rev up.

1979 honda cbx 6 cylinder, no power at 1 coil. no


If you mean no output power, coil is bad. If you mean no input power 12v, there is a fault in the wiring. If you mean no signal from stator, wiring problem as well
