You have to do an electric follow until you find the problem. If you haven't got one, get a multi-meter this will tell you whether power is getting to a certain section or not. I use mine set at 20, that is three clicks left. This will give you a clear voltage reading.

you need a micrometere or vernier caliper to measure how thick they are that how you tell how worn the clutch is. the manual will list the specificational limit (how thin you should allow them to get and how do the basket and innser hub looks like). if they have small teeth on them they are worn.,

I'm not gettin any spark it has a new rector firer any ideas ?need to check the coils first (rectifier ) is a voltage limiter and would not stop it from sparking.,,

new spark plugs also tested that coil is sparking side stand is not down and it does have fuel. Can anyone help me with Cagiva River 500 starting prob?separate the multi plug that the sidestand switch connect to and use a small piece of wire to bridge one side to the other......if the bike spins over then at least that's one problem area fathomed out. If the bike fails to spin check the main fuse that sits in the starter solenoid, this can be found by tracing the pos wire from the battery back to the next place it bolts too, this is the starter relay. On this is usually about a 30amp fuse, check it hasn't blown as its the first to go pop usually.,,,

The primary resistance will be less than 2 - 4 Ohm and secondary around 30K Ohms up to 40K Ohms if that is any help.

You have written some conflicting information. How can you know that your engine has no spark if it will not turn over? No problem, please write back and elaborate on its issue, symptoms, engine codes and things you have checked and tested so far. At this point I would start looking around. Inspect the battery and power distribution box. Check that the battery connections are clean and tight. Check that the ground cable, going to the body panel is clean and tight. Check all the fuses for damage (over heating or corrosion) and the same for the relays. Is the antitheft system working (does it recognize your ignition key?)? When you turn the ignition hey to the RUN position. Does the gauge cluster respond like it always does? Do you see the lights come on and go out and can you read the odometer mileage? Please write back and let me know. Good Luck.

Remove the side cover so you can have access to the stator. Then you will be looking for a notch on the inner case. Once you locate the notch you will line up the stator ( which also has a little line or notch on it ) with that notch.

Hello, you need to use manual? If so, the best return to the original car, and you are interested in motorcycle aspects? If you can, you have time to look at.http://www.motorpartstore.com.Good luck and have a nice day

Check the kickstand interlock switch. As deemed mandatory by the DOT.. all street legal motorcycles come with a switch in the kickstand pivot area that detects whether or not it is in the upright (or down) position. This is supposed to prevent riders from taking off with the kickstand down, which can ruin your day when the first left hander comes up- This switch will essentially shutdown the electrics to the engine once you attempt to engage first gear (in the down position)...These switches are fairly reliable but can fail. To test it, take a small jumper wire and connect the two wires (going to the switch) together.
