No spark on 426
Posted December 31, 2010 - 03:22 PM
My stock wr 426 02 has no spark.
Was meeting up with the guys for a ride, had the engine running for like 20 seconds pushed the choke in and the engine stopped.
So i tryed to restart it, it wouldn't start after a couple of minutes, so i got on the phone to make my apoloygies and pulled the plug.
No spark, so i changed the plug, new plug no spark.
Checked the plug with a multimeter and thats working fine.
Got the manual out and went through every connection with multimeter and they all check out.
While turning the engine over with the lights on there isn't even a flicker on the lights so i'm thinking stator/magneto?
Basically looking for some input on my next move.
Any input will be greatfully received, Cheers Rich.

With the light switch in the on postion i don't even get a flicker on them.
This bike has no battery, its a kicker only.
Every connection has been checked as the manual fault diagnostics check list.
Gone over it twice with a multimeter just to make sure that i haven't missed something.
Thats why i'm thinking something like either the stator or cdi unit.
Gone through the 20 something pages of the search button with no spark and i keeps coming up with stator replacement because every thing else works.

Unfortunately, due to cost, I'd bet on the CDI where their failures are immediate.

How can i check a cdi out for a fault. Is there a way to check it?
I think that which ever part it is it aint going to be cheap.
