Is this a Kohler engine? If so there is a wire going to the coil from a 2 wire harness located at rear of engine near spark module. Unplug this wire to determine if problem is coil or a safety switch.

My 2005 yamaha ttr 125 won't start, I change the spark plug and the conpression seem ok. What else could be?


Hi, N_glutek and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. A severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
13. 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.
14. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
15. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
16. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
17. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
18. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
19. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
20. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
21. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
22. Check for engine trouble codes.

It does sound like the coil, but try this before you buy one: Change the spark plug, or substitute a known working plug and test for spark. Clean the terminals between the battery, switch and coil, and those at the coil, then test for spark again. Ensure that you can get power to the coil by testing the wiring for continuity along the same path. If all of the terminals are cleaned, and power can be applied all the way through the switch to the coil without getting fir, then the coil seems likely.

Hope this helps. Usually (and hopefully), cleaning the terminals will do the trick.

Best regards, --W/D--

I had similar problem, I found the wiring harness where it plugs into the ignition switch get loose and breaks contact. I replaced the wiring harness it fixed the problem for a while. Then replaced the ignition switch and it helped for a short time. Now I just open the hood reach behind the ignition switch and wiggle the wires while turning the key until it starts. Been working for me for 8to 10 years.

Motor runs for 5-10 min. then starts missing and quits.


Check your spark first,if you do not have spark your problem is the coils-if you do have spark the problem probaly lies withone of your valves getting stuck after getting hot and soonas it cools down a little it closes and then you can restart it till it gets hot again.Hope this helps
