Carb settings incorrect? Check / replace spark plug - do plug test to check for good spark. Fuel tap broken or not opening properly? Check flow of fuel to carb. Maybe blocked tubing.

Wiring harness 1974 sportster???


I am assuming your bike is stock, or close to it. In 1974, all h-d's used a battery coil ignition with wasted spark. Battery positive flows from the ignition switch to the coil, through the coil primary winding to the points, then open or shorted to negative (through the chassis) depending on the points being open or closed. When the engine is turning over, this is what happens: The small cam that operates the points has the points in the closed position, so battery current is flowing through the coil primary, through the closed points to negative. This causes the primary winding inside the coil to set up a magnetic field. When the cam starts to open the points, the current tries to bridge the gap. If we let this happen, the big arc between the point surfaces would burn up in a hurry, and the plugs would not fire for the following reason: The ignition coil is a transformer. It has a primary and secondary winding.The secondary winding has many more turns of wire than the primary. When the secondary winding "cuts" magnetic lines of force a larger voltage is induced in the secondary. In the case on your sporty, we are boosting 12 volts to over 10,000 volts. This depends on 2 things: The number of lines of force and the speed they are cut. So, when the points just start to open, the condenser absorbes the current until the points are open enough to prevent arcing. Then the current flow through the primary winding stops. The magnetic field quickly collapses, cutting through the secondary windings that are connected to the spark plugs. The resulting high voltage (pressure) Jumps the gap on both plugs and lights the fire. One of the cylinders is on the exhaust stroke so that spark is wasted. So: ignition on : 12v at coil positive. With points closed, 0 volts at coil negative. If you read voltage here, the points are dirty or open or the wire from the coil to the points is open. Points open: 12 volts at coil negative. To check for spark, you don't have to crank the engine. Just manually opening the points should fire the plugs. After you get the plugs firing, post again and I will tell you how to razor tune this thing. It should start instantly with a perfect idle. Hope this is clear.

Did you check to see if the battery leaked? I had a similar experience and it was because one of the batteries had leaked. This might also explain why the keys are stuck.

Im not getting any spark from one of side of my 2 cyclinder kawasaki ninja 500 EX. Its an 1987. I have replaced the plug wires and the pickup coils. I switched the coil packs and both work. Im just not...


Hi,

To my knowledge, a 1987 Kawasaki EX500 uses a TCBI with digital advance to fire the ignition coils upon receipt of pulse from the trigger/pickup coils.

Since the pickup coils are new, and you have swapped the ignition coild, replace the high tension wires and checked/replace the spark plugs, the the only cmponent left is the CDI (electronic ignition system).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Back firing


what do you mean stupid? 87 89 90whatever unless you got some serious mods you shouldn't really notice that much difference in the performance between redily available octanes in pump gas. more likely a coincedence. timing; rich fuel mix; jets in carbs among other things can cause back firing. run the tank off or drain into yer mower and put in summpin else if it gets right again blame it on the gas if not the GAS didn't break it somthin else just got screwy good luck bro
