How spark plug wirers go on motor from coil

The two short wires go to the center cylinders, two long to the outside cylinders. You will need the diagram to figure which coil wire goes where if you were unfortunate enough not to have marked them.

How do i wire the coils on my 78 suzuki gs 750. spark plug order which spark plug wire goes where??

There are 2 coils. The coil on the left provides spark for cylinders 1 & 4. The coil on the right provides spark for cylinders 2 & 3. The firing order is 1-2-4-3.
In case you don't know, this little tidbit is something to carry with you for life: Whenever a reference is made to a place in or on a vehicle, it is ALWAYS the perspective "from-left-to-right" of the seated vehicle operator.
In other words, in your case, as you're sitting on the bike, cylinder #1 is the one furthest to your left, and #4 is furthest to your right.

Dont know how to start my honda cb 350

First- turn on the gas. wait for it to get to the carb. Next switch on- close the choke, give 1/4 throttle, Kick it - if it's a no start after about 4 kicks - open the choke and give 1/2 throttle and close the gas.(your flooded)- 4 more kicks and check the spark plug for wet fuel or dry. If dry- dip the business of the plug in fuel and try again. Still no start- replace the plug.

If all that fails- you can disconnect the ignition switch and that will separate the wiring from the ignition- be careful here because you can not shut it off with the switch it can be killed with the choke or pull off the ignition wire to the spark plug.

Still no start, do a compression test as it needs at least 80# to fire.

Unscrew the plug boot from the wire and look at the tip of the wire if you see some blue or greenish corrosion cut off about a 1/4 inch of the wire and replace the boot on the wire Ihad that problem before on a 89 CB 750

Need to know what plug lead gos where took them off and cant remember what order they go back on, 1996 honda cb 400 super four.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Seated on the bike, the lefthand ignition coil powers sparkplugs 1 & 4 while the righthand ignition coil powers sparkplugs 2 & 3.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

92 honda cb 750, oil light will not go out, bike won't start

Look around the engine oil drain plug and fill area and see if there is an electric sending unit( small plug with a prong for a wire) that is screwed into the engine if so check to see if its unplugged / could be a low oil cut off switch that kills all power to the ignition if the oil is to low ( or the wire is unplugged)

How do I check if there is spark??

Take the spark plug out, reconnect the coil wire, and hold the spark plug against the engine block while turning over the engine. You should see a spark across the gap of the spark plug. Use leather, thick dry cloth, or rubber gloves, dry newspaper, or rubber handled pliers to hold the plug or you might get zapped. Or you could play a mean trick on a friend and let them hold the plug while you crank it and watch them jump and cuss. Don't forget to run like h***. If you found this helpful please remember to rank it.
