Question about 2004 Buell Firebolt XB12R
Hi, Ironhorsedave if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in the head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, 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.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Itt sounds like you might have a short in you system thats frying you bike. Make sure that none of the wires are exposed or coming in contact with the frame.

. The relay is attached to relay connector located to the right of
the battery underneath the seat.
Pull relay from relay block.
. Connect positive battery lead to the 86 terminal.
. Connect negative battery lead to the 85 terminal to
. Check for continuity between the 30 and 87 terminals.
A good relay shows continuity (continuity tester
lamp “on” or a zero ohm reading on the ohmmeter).

Wow, my 2002 blast is doing the same thing, or at least it was untill it blew a hole through the exhaust and quit running all together. Time for a sportster.

If your bikw is backfiring it means that the timing is off. When an engine backfires it means that the exhaust valves are opening too soon. when that happens they are partially or all the way open when the air/ fuel mix is ignited in the cylinder. Check the wiring leaving the flasher relay to make sure that there are no breaks. Sometimes there is also a seperate fuse that runs inline with the relay to protect it so make sure that if there is a seperate fuse that it is ok. The relay part number that I came accross is ZZ38170. When i searched for your vehicle it said that it was a 4 prong flasher and this came up many times.
