No if you replaced with a stock replacement part it should read the same as before. if this job took a while and you had gas left in the carbs you may want to llok there to make sure they are not gummed up.

    its a fuel injectied bike, the timing is right but the rear cyclinder is not firing and running very rich

  • Vtxboss Sep 11, 2010

    does the rear cylinder have spark at the plug? if it does not recheck your wiring to motor, try switching coils and see if it sparks on the front cylinder. also check compression just to make sure it is not cam timing or something wrong in motor. these v-twins are a pain in the rear to get the cam timing right. i would say if plug is getting wet on the rear cylinder then it is not likely fuel injector problem. let me know what you find and we will see if we can't get this figured out.

    the rear cylinder has 175 psi for compression. and it is fauling the plugs out its got me baffald it has spark, compression, and the timeisng is right but its just not running right for some reason

  • Vtxboss Sep 11, 2010

    ok i am thinking you are out of time for spark and compression. do a test pull the plugs and lay them on the heads so they will spark turn the motor over slowly and when the rear cylinder is coming up on the compression stroke watch for the spark on the rear plug. it should fire just before it gets to top dead center. if it does not spark turn engine over and see if it sparks about 1/4 turn on the crank later. if this is the case the rear cam is out of time with the crank. let me know what you find this is the simplest way to check for out of time cams on the japanese v-twin's.

Possible Causes:
  • CMP sensor
  • CKP sensor
  • Signal rotor

loose chain? or the can be a dead (jammed) tensioner.
if crazy loose it can skip a sproket tooth, do you ignore chain noise?

Have a pontica Grand Prix 2006 v 6 engine turns over have no spark at spark plugs have no 12volts icm check fues under hood change crank shaft position sensor all so change ingnition switch need help

When you change a crankshaft position sensor, your engine computer will lose the readings for the crankshaft position and thus lose the spark timing.
Your vehicle now needs what is called a "CASE learn" to run now and will not run until this is done, regardless of anything else. This procedure will essentially allow your PCM to reprogram the timing back to normal. Most dealership and repair garages can get you going.

Its not unusual for the crankshaft sensor to intermittanly fail. The crank sensors are not real expensive and are not extremely hard to change.
The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) is mounted into the engine block above the starter motor. Engine speed and crankshaft position are provided through the crankshaft position sensor. The sensor generates pulses that are the input sent to the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM interprets the sensor input to determine the crankshaft position. The PCM then uses this position, along with other inputs, to determine injector sequence and ignition timing. The sensor is a Hall effect device combined with an internal magnet. It is also sensitive to steel within a certain distance from it.
Below is a pic of the sensor location.
Good luck.

Crankshaft position sensor located where on a altima 2005 2.5 4 cylinder


The crankshaft position sensor (POS) is located on the cylinder
block rear housing facing the gear teeth (cogs) of the signal plate at
the end of the crankshaft. It detects the fluctuation of the engine rev-olution.
The sensor consists of a permanent magnet and Hall IC.
When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth
cause the gap with the sensor to change.
The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to
Due to the changing magnetic field, the voltage from the sensor
The ECM receives the voltage signal and detects the fluctuation .
Before performing the following procedure, confirm that battery voltage is more than 10.5V with igni-tion
