Hi, Edward and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose, check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil, pick up coil, trigger coil or CDI box testing needs to be checked with an ohmmeter at 70 degrees Fahrenheit
7. Faulty safety switches clutch, kickstand, neutral, off/on etc.
8. Faulty ignition switch.

G'day egdbcs . Ok.now lets see.You say good spark,so i'm presuming you are doing the old sight test.Try bending the arm on a know good sparkplug about 5-6mm,earth the plug and kick'er in the guts(crank it over)Be very carefull , high voltage danger.If there's still a good spark it's safe to say that there will also be a good spark under pressure in the combustion chamber,speaking of which you should also do a compression test,anything over 100psi should be ok. as i'm not to sure of the extent of the re-build,hopefully the valves were lapped and checked for straight and true and valve seals replaced,if you notice oil on the tip of the spark plug you could have a leaking valve seal or oil seal .Try putting a small amount of fuel directly into the combustion chamber ,tighten up the spark plug ,install the plug cap and.......Yeah ..You guessed it ..."kicker in the guts".If all the abouve are correct and true it should fire up.If it runs for 5-10 seconds then stops you've got some sort of fuel starvation problem , could be dirt in the carb,blocked idle jet ,or air passage or even the needle could have come off it's clip,believe me with an old bike like yours anything could be worn and loose inside that carby.The only other thing to consider is the timing.There may be a good spark but is it happening at the right time inside the engine???. I'll leave it all in your capable hands EGDBCS.Hope this helps to solving your worries. Chow for now......Tilleydog..

  • Do you see spark? If not, check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the side stand kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it.
  • Is the handlebar kill switch on? Is it shorted out?
  • Are you getting power to the coils?
  • Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery.
  • Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center or side casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.

First of all, never start any vehicle without a battery.
The charging system will try to put out potentially destructive voltages attempting to recharge a non-existing battery.

What you need to check now is power to the ignition circuit.
Specifically, try testing at the + of the ignition coil?
If you do have current, then it is the distributer ignition that is bad.
If not, then it is the ignition control unit that is bad.
But both can be tested by most parts places, before buying a new one.

2006 TW200, second ignition coil in 6 months. Is this a common issue with this model.


Hi, Rick and the usual suspects are:
1. Wrong coil for service application.
2. Damaged or worn out spark plugs.
3. Spark plug gap too wide.
4. Damaged, leaking, worn out spark plug wires, boots, or center cap connectors check for spark leakage in the dark.
5. Excessive vibration due to the loose mounting bracket.
6. Faulty ground check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.

I have a first generation 83 yamaha venture 1200 v 4 i have power to only 3 of the ignition coils the fourth coil has tested good by taking #3 lead and plugging into #4 coil. any ideas on what part to...


Okay...when you say power to the coil...I think you mean getting a spark on the plug wire?

All 4 coils should have battery voltage on the red/white wire to each coil. The second wire returns to the igniter (TCI....ignition black box) and it switches that wire off and on to ground to cause the coils to fire. If all 4 test good...then
Check out the TCI, the large box mounted on the coil rack that the connectors are clean.
Now remove the 6 wire connector from the TCI...and test the resistance of the pickup coils which are located under the left crankcase cover beside the stator coil.
you will be testing the following wire pairs on the 6 wire connector
Orange-Black
White/Red-Black
Gray-Black
White/Green-Black
You should see at ambient engine temp...about 110 ohms resistance on all 4 pairs.....if one pair is showing no resistance...you need to test at the lower 5 wire connector just below the seat left side with the same 5 colors....unhook and test....if still having one bad test...pickup coils may be bad.

Stalls, loss of one or more cylinders. Now in shop first $700 to clean carburators and now second $700 to replace an electrical part because of the stalling. Is this crazy?


okay...these are general to Yamaha igniter systems...
so bike is in neutral...shows neutral, kill switch on...
Test each plug cap with a new spark plug...if one or more getting no spark....
Unhook the pickup coil harness and test the resistance (the P U coils located in left front crankcase cover with stator. If resistance tests out fine, ensure the connector is clean and connect.
Now test that both ignition coil packs primary and secondary resistances are within spec.
Verify the ignition coil packs are getting battery voltage to the primary terminal (often a red/white wire).
Ensure the igniter (the ignition black box) also called TCI is getting battery voltage on its supply.
Ensure all connectors clean to TCI.
The only other issue may be the interlocks are trying to shut down ignition....typically a black/white wire from the igniter goes to sidestand relay, tip over switch....both shut down ignition by grounding the control side of the TCI...could be they are partially grounding allowing minimal ignition.

Have no spark. Changed coil & CDI box so far. still no spark. Is it the internal coil? 1989 enticer 400T/R


Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, suggested checks on the wires:
  • black of igniter unit tied to ground;
  • orange wire from igniter to ignition coil with pulsating voltage when starting;
  • gray wire from igniter to ignition coil with pulsating voltage when starting;
  • IGN + 12 on red/white wire to igniter and ignition coils from engine stop switch;
  • IGN + 12 on red/white wire to engine stop switch coming from 10Amp ignition fuse;
  • pulsating low voltage from pickup coil between the wires black/white, white/green & yellow/red.
Postback results of above voltage tests.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa. Happy Holidays.
