Testing of spark?
Posted November 18, 2006 - 03:48 PM
Got it from the dealer on monday, didn´t start so i decided to charge the battery properly.
Next try was at friday night and i managed to start it after changing the spark plug, i had it running for about 5 minutes in the garage.
Today i was planning to break it in but it didn´t start again, no spark on a brand new spark plug. I tested the spark the classic way grounding the plug on the outside of the engine while cranking it over i also tried the kick starter with the same result.
Now my questions is it harmful for the cdi unit to test for spark this way?
Is it common with cdi failure on theese bikes?
Should i get a spark when i kick start with a low battery?
Should the headlight be shining up when i use the e-start?
