Help with 92 waverunner 650 no spark issue

Hi, Banjomaniac 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 module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module or CDI box.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

The scooter is hard to start in the spring after an inactive winter. This spring it would not turn over let alone, start. I have replaced the battery and added a float charger. The engine turns over...

i allways start at the begining with this type of problem

when you charged the battery did you check to see if there is 12 volts?
have you checked that all the wires are attched to the battery?
have you replaced the spark plug?
checked the fuse should be just above the battery will be inside a clear plastic cover
put a meter on the battery and try and start the bike and see if there is a drain to earth

if none of these cures the problem then check the cdi unit trace the h.t lead from the spark plug to the unit maybe you will have to remove the side plastic to get to it there will be a plug with 2 wires inside it put a meter on them and see if there is voltage if there is then the cdi unit is fault

hope this helps

Took my bike out, WR450f 07 model, got to the shop and had something to eat, came out and bike wouldn't go, headlight globe was blown, actually smashed, was no spark so replaced spark plug and checked...

My thoughts...Light globes are made to withstand voltages of less than 16 volts. So if you are finding your headlight globe burnt out, it's because the system voltage has exceeded this. Have your voltage regulator replaced which will remedy the problem. Over voltage will have an effect on other electronic components such as the CDI unit and wreck your battery too.

Battery died, replaced with new one but still won't start.

The old battery must have shorted out internally. That is why it went dead out of the blue.
Here are my thoughts, in random order, on other possibilities >
  • Get a 2amp trickle charger and charge the battery for 6 hours. The starter could be robbing most the juice leaving too little for a good spark. pull the spark plugs and replace with a set of stock plugs. Check for spark.
  • A kill switch is on.
  • Check the fuses
  • Petcock fuel pickup screens are plugged up.
  • Water in the fuel
  • Fuel pump (if it has one) may have lost it's prime, become plugged up, or quit working.
  • The engine may just be flooded.
  • the CDI / computer may have reacted to the battery short and gotten fried.

Overcharged battery on motorcycle, now it won't even spark

CDI = Capacitor Discharge Ignition. If the key was off you did not hurt the CDI. The battery is fried. 2amps is the max for a bike battery. I don't want to know at how many amps you charged the battery with. Go get a new battery AND a 1amp or 2amp charger. Charge the battery for an hour. Chances are you will be fixed.
