04 Polaris predator, I bought used last week. I put a new battery and new carb on it. It doesn't have power, won't start, and no spark with kick starter. Dead. Fuses,wires, look good. Any ideas

Did it have compression before you bought it?
No power to the electric starter? Then you probably have no power to the ignition system. I'd check battery connections. Is the battery going flat overnight? Some shorts. Is there an ignition with a key? Is the switch good? or all the connections good? Corrosion does some funny things. Fuses may look good but actually are not.

Would a bad CDI unit cause the engine to die when shifted into reverse and not provide spark when started with the start switch?

I suspect you have a wire crossed and it might not be your fault. You might want to research the pin/wire locations. can't help you with the reverse part because I have no idea what it is you're working on

Starting problem.start pushing but do not start whit switch.starter is good.

unplug your cdi and ensure connections are clean,could be a lazy starter or low battery, you will need a voltmeter to check charge reaching your battery,anyrthing onver 12.7 volts is ok.

1993 honda nighthawk has no power. I put a new

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the indulgence of DickCanFixIt...

Almost always, in instances such as you have described, the main 30Amps fuse of the 93 CB750 (F2P Retro) would have blown. The main fuse is located along with the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the + cable from the battery terminal.

Additionally, once power has been restored, you may want to check the regulator and CDI as they are electronic and therefore prone to damage on reverse polarity.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

IF ENGINE CRANKS BUT NOT START -, sounds like a short in the tach wire, plug remote starter in and cut the tach wire to the engine for the remote starter. if the truck starts then you remote starter module is faulty.

IF ENGINE WON'T KRANK -, then there is a starter kill hooked in with it. if you bypass this you should be fine. just follow yellow wire from ignition switch till you find where it is cut. rejoin these two yellow wires and you should be good to go

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.
