SOURCE: no spark on spark plug

To check the ignition coil, unplug the wires going to it and check the resistance with an ohm meter. There are two parts of it to check, the primary and secondary circuits. The primary circuit is the low voltage side where the black and green wires from the harness attach. The resistance through this part of the coil should be between 0.16 and 0.19 ohms. Check the secondary side by measuring the resistance between the spark plug lead and the primary side where the green wire was attached. The resistance there should be between 3.69 and 4.51 ohms.
The resistance through the pulse generator, as measured between the two wires that come from it, should be between 468 and 572 ohms.
Generally, the various components of the ignition system are very trouble free. If you're not getting spark to the spark plug, be sure to check all of the bike's wire harness and connectors for corrosion, melted connectors, broken wires, etc.

do you have a circuit diagram. have you traced the system through. Sounds to me like it is an issue before all that, either with the junction box or IC igniter. The stop switch could also be an issue as could the ignition switch. Keep posting if you want me to have a closer look at my wiring diagram

Huskey 3650 generator will not start. Had it for at least 4 years and have never started it. no fire to spark plug

So check components responsible for spark such as the plug itself, and the ignition coil and the gap for spark generation. Probably a bad coil.

Why do I have no spark at the coil

A few things can cause lack of spark at the ignition coil. This assumes pointless ignition system.

  • The stop terminal is intentional grounded IE stop switch on.
  • The stop circuit is shorted to ground.
Remove the plug wire from the plug so engine can not start. Remove the stop wire from the coil and try starting the engine while testing spark. If spark is now present then check the stop circuit.
  • The coil pack itself is bad.
  • Flywheel magnets are demagnetized.
These can check by seeing they attract heavy metal object strongly.
