Question about Boating

95 Kawasaki 900 zxi, no spark

No spark, have thoroughly inspected all connections, wiring, kill switch, electronic key, inside the electronics box, and have ohmed out the 3 coils, pick up coil, plug wires, all check good. So it looks like the CDI ignitor is bad. But the factory manual doesnt tell how to test it, but to ''take to the dealer for his special tool for testing''. Anyone know how to test the Ignitor? Thanks/

Magneto stator can also be a solution check for AC power from stator while cranking the motor use sta-bil winterizing fluid to insure piston where during cranking process spray directly into spak plug holes with spark plus out 4 sprays into each cylinder should be enough crank motor without plugs for reduced compression and more cranking amps

SOURCE: Linear rudder refernce Furuno 500 auto pilot will not pass test?

light on board is probably normal no, this is an inductive pickup, can not test with ohmeter, sorry. Test with display, observing rudder angle display. Do rudder setup repeatedly until it works, it is a little fussy for placement and clearance but patience and the correct "bracketry" will make this pilot perform great.

SOURCE: 1981 evinrude 115HP outboard - The wire connecting

1) I cleaned the terminal ends and whether or not I mixed the wires up again, I really dont know but I managed to get the motor started.
2) I took the starter motor apart and cleaned the plates which make contact with the brushes, this made quite a difference to the working of the starter motor.

I have no spark on an 86 kx125 upon reassembly.

Hi, Kurt and Tammy some of the following may not apply as this directed mainly towards Harleys what you need is a wiring diagram for your bike which is in the free service manual listed below it sounds like you may have a pinched wire or faulty wire connector or not wired correctly in the ignition circuit, if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in the head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, 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.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

I have JD 214 that I've replace coil, points spark plug,wire yet still getting no spark the mower just quit run inspection I found that the points was burnt and plastic where power attached was melted

Wow, a tractor with points. That's rare these days. I believe your tractor was made between 1975 and 1987. It's a 200 series. Does it have the 14 hp Kohler?

Not sure about your problem. On a modern day tractor with electronic ignition, I would check the safety switch system. In your case, I would check the fuse, key switch, and look at the kill wire running off the coils to see if there is worn insulation. If you have seat safety or PTO switches check them too.

I have a 1078 z1000 with no spark does this have points and a condenser?

You may have a bad on/off kill switch or wiring defect.
If unit has electronic ignition you will need to do some tests on it to find the problem or find a friend that can help or a good service tech to help you out.
Also some bikes need a good hot battery to start.

Check the side stand kill switch, battery, wire connections, neutral switch and clutch switch if your bike has one. If still no spark have the dealer check the electronic ignition.

I have a Suzuki gs 550 1980 sometimes I don't have spark.

with electrics start at one point and eliminate each possible cause ie; is the kill switch corroded inside the switchgear due to water ingression, when did you last change the your coil working there a loose/damaged connection in the ignition system wiring, a bad earth there dirt on your electronic ignition pick up or if you have points do they need cleaning/replacing condensers need replacment from time to time. you may have a damaged ecu if you have electronic ignition.. hope this helps

Sometimes fires sometimes doesnt

The side stand kill switch can go bad and do this. Check the switch with an Ohm meter. Also, check the wiring harness connections. Fix any loose connections. Check the handlebar kill switch. It can go bad also.

Kickstand kill switch inop

Connect the two wires together that goes to the kickstand it should keep it from starting. With wires unpluged it should start.
If that is the case you need a switch
