XR650L: no spark - where to start...

6 posts in this topic

My 03 "L" has been running great - and suddenly - it won't start. The fuel delivery seems fine - but the plug has no spark. tried a new plug - no spark. Is there a weak link I should check out 1st - like the coil or pulse generator. Thanks for the help in advance......

good starting point...

take both wires off the clutch switch and ground them both. this bypasses all safety switches.

if you still have no spark then look at the cdi unit.

Is there a way to check to see if the CDI is bad ie....can you use a meter on it?

Also, is there a good after market brand of CDI thats better than the stock Honda unit? Thanks...
