Hi, the good news is if you have a spark then the igniter is working, the igniter either works and you get a spark, or it doesnot work and you dont get a spark, if the bike was ecu then that may be different issue, what area r u from

Bike runs fine up to 5000rpm - then hits a brick wall - carbs have been balanced - fuel flow checked - coils ok???


Here might be a fiew things to check :
1) spark plugs try new ones
2) spark plug boots if they are resistor ones one could be bad
3) fuel flow - try running on reserve the tap could be dirty or just not letting enough though had this happen on my cr250 honda

Starts and runs perfect,but occassionaly will


sounds like a fuel problem, maybe blocking fuel tap pickup in the tank, they often have filters on the ends inside the tank, If it has a vacumn opperated fuel tap, they can sometimes stick shut, if so try turning it to PRI between on and reserve, next time it happens.
Its not likely to be anything electrical if it starts again so quickly

I replaced the fuel pump on a 1995 taurus and it wont start


have you checked the fuel rail for fuel. if its getting fuel andstill wont start check the coil pack. its hard to say with out seeing it but if have fuel or spark its gotta start so check coil pack for spark if you have done fuel. best of luck

My 2002 triumph Thunderbird stalled and wont start


Check fuel filter and air filter, then spark plugs, not necessarily in that order.

95 model thunderbird, runs great until idle, cuts out no spark bike starts again when it feels like it. when idling engine randomly miss fires as if you were flicking the kill switch on and off quickly....


The pick-up coils fail sometimes but usually lead to a complete failure
Before just replacing parts u can eliminate some suspects ie kill switch,clutch switch & ignition switch by bridging
Also check that there isnt a spark jumping from an HT lead or plug cap

No starting


You'll have to determine what's not there, either no spark, or insufficient fuel. I'm guessing you have no spark & that's why ignition parts were replaced, is that correct?

1977 triumph bonniville have rebuilt engine starts ok sounds good


I'd do the usual checks -- a compression test, look at the spark plugs (which should be a nice tan colour after you've put a few miles on the motor). Also, check the primary and secondary resistance on your coils (or get a mechanic to do this if you don't know how). They may not be putting out enough spark to support higherrevs.
Or... It may be a fuel problem -- have you replaced the fuel filter recently? are there any kinks in the fuel line? Also take the fuel line off the fuel petcock, turn the gas lever and make sure gas is flowing through the petcock well... if not, you'll need to replace or rebuild the petcock.
