You can check the coil with an ohmmeter for continuity. For spark you use one of these

START WHEN COLD WARMS UP WONT REFIRE NO SPARK


Not sure what year, make, model of bike, but basic testing should be done back to coil(s), if the bike fires when cold but once warmed up will not fire, could be a bad coil, or sometimes it could be a bad cam or crank sensor causing it not to start. If it's a newer bike say 2000 or newer, I'd take a look at the sensors first.

Will not start with start button but machine cranks normally. engine starts easily with rope starter


Hi Kathy
Sounds like cranking with start button draws voltage down so that there is not enough juice for spark. Check Battery.
Try using second battery connected to just start motor.
Check voltage at HV coil (if used) or whatever is supplying voltage to make spark

Roketa 125cc wont start! spark plug is not giving off spark?


Check the lead and connections between the coil and the plugs, the battery and the coil. If all else fails check the battery charge.

Problems starting my 2003 Yamaha TTR225


The cylinder is the coil. It might be bad but it is expensive and you would not replace it till you know for sure there is no spark. You can take the plug out and then put it on the wire and ground it against the engine while a friend cranks the starter. Look for the spark flash. Make sure the kill switch is in the "on" position.
If that shows a spark then you will need to move into a different line of troubleshooting. I always recommend that people buy a Clymer manual.

85 ranger, engine cranks but won't start. Fuel ok, no spark during crank, sparks at end of crank. 2 weeks ago I replaced the intake manifold gasket and starter, it started right up. The vaccum was at 20...


Sounds more like an electrical problem.First I'd check the battery voltage, should be at least 13. It shouldn't drop much below 11 when you crank the engine and it should bounce back when you stop. Make sure your connections are good especially to the coil,wires aren't frayed or loose on connectors. There should be a ground from the body to the motor. Is it still thereand making good contact? If I'm not mistaken the coil should ground to the motor, make sure it has good contact as well. Also double check your connections at the starter to make sure they are clean and tight. Loose connections can draw extra power and could draw enough extra power to kill the coil. Hope this helps.

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.
