Did this video help you?

karen brong: hi i have a kawasaki 440 ltd. i am tryin to make a flame thrower exhaust. what i am going to do is make another coil based spark plug fireing system for a fuel injector . i have tryed a honda v65 coil with a ingnighter box of a dohc 750 honda (spark box) . it will fire constant good spark when charged by a battery charger only. but when a battery is added it will not spark. any clue? does the spark box get ac or dc power? i know bike charging is ac till it hitts the rec reg box. would i need to come off stator before the box for power?

anthony lavielle: my problem is i went to start my quad nothing happens i have a electric starter its chinese but i still love it what do i do is it the coil and cdi and if it is and i buy a new one for the cdi will i have to change all the wiring 

Kevin Murchie: Ok thanx..but ill give a bit more info..it is a kawasaki klx 650 1996,,so the key cylinder was removed.. Leaving awhite wire..a brown..and 4smaller onws blk/w and blk..red /red w...now these all arw supposed to be connected to the new cylinder.. But none have any power.. The bike ran perfectly before we took out the cylinder.. 

Kevin Murchie: I have a kawasaki klx650. Key was lost while out riding.. Had to remove key cylinder.. Cut the wires attempt to hotwire.. But all 6wires are dead..how can this be?

OTAlucard: haha the magic smoke joke

Motor Brain: Ok Thanksssshh !

Leo Louvar: hey, question about Ignition coils, i bought a universal coil for my honda shadow, because the old coils on it were bad, i noticed the new universal 12 volt coils with 2 lead connectors have a shorter bracket post the the ignition coil body, so i was able to bolt down one side of the coils to the bracket on the motorcycle, does bolting down the coil have anything to do with grounding or making the coils work properly? 

Pilot Ok: My Kawasaki KLE Anhelo (250cc) wont run with air filter box cover installed.Only if i remove air filter box cap it works just fine.It happened after the 2 days outdoor parking in wet and snow area.What could you suggest please? Yamaha workshop couldnt fix it for more than a month.All related works have been done with no effect.

Evan Soukup: +mrmaxstorey Hi i am looking for a coil for my drz 125, and i cant find any. THere are many others for much cheaper but im not sure if it would work correctly since they are not made for the drz 125. Does it matter? Do you have to buy the exact same coil? thanks in advance!

teror1sta: Manuals of some bikes contains ohms check of ICI ....

Matt Pittaway: what about 49cc Chinese pocket bikes with no manual available? Trying to get spark, not the plug, trying to check coil.

OneMicNewMikes: I'm in need of help on 95 Honda Helix CN250 ...it's not charging. When connected to the battery jump starter it runs fine, when I disconnect the jump starter the odometer immediately shuts off and 1:30 later the whole bike dies. HELP! Im currently replacing the stator because that's what feedback i was getting said to do HELP! The video is on my channel. The first vid. Thanks!

isaiahmarch81: Hi can you do a video on how to connect the right wires or how to put the wires together the right way

Isuru Basnsyake: hey i have yamaha dt 125 ypvs bike it has little bit spark but bike is not starting pls help me

Nut Shell: \pleeeeeze help im going to be buying a 95 zx9r with no spark has compression but wont start its my first owned bike just dont want it to be a money pit

Chris Wheeler: Here's my problem, got a 92 fzr 600R, I was riding and the vr fuse blew, was told the vr its self is bad and sending to much current, so I got it replaced, now the bike only starts with a jump from a jumper box but only runs on 2 cylinders, was running on all 4 when died though, it runs and rides except its like a 250cc, I was told my cdi is bad and that's why only 2 cylinders fire, my email is jdmcarboy64@gmail.com thanks!

hakuna matata: hey im owner of kawasaki eliminator 175 and my cdi was stoped working and im also unable to find new or older cdi for it.. so plz tell me is that possible to replace with kawasaki eliminator 125cdi

Kyle Potgieter: hey man you really seem to know whats going on, please send me a mail, kylepotigter@gmail.com i need some help on my bike.

Michael Marshal: i have a yam 125 too with no spark :/ .......got wet now wont fire ........you think cdi and coil then ?

kevin ouwersloot: the problem is that you wreck the plate

Freethought Police: Hey mrmax, great vid. I have 1995 triumph speed triple 900 just fitted new engine. Starting no probs, though 3rd header pipe staying cold on tickover until you rev it a bit. Take it out on the road and is fine for 100 yrds or so then starts cutting out suddenly then starts again after 30 seconds or so and then keeps doing the same. Swapped coils over same symptoms, same cylinder, changed plugs, any ideas dude? just gonna check yer diagnostics site, cheers 

Goingin007: And turns off

Jonathan Canales: I was like, "It runs on smoke! What the freak!"

mrmaxstorey: Thats old for a scooter battery. Start there, replace it and charge up the new one

mrmaxstorey: This one was full of resin too, some guys will meticulously melt it off on low heat to try to repair it if it goes south, but I didnt have the patience. Apparently the resin is a good idea for use on a bike that bounces up and down so much, but it does effectively make the CDI a replacement unit only

mrmaxstorey: Nah I dont think its your CDI, if your bike runs then it is sparking and your cdi is fine

Francis Collier: I just bought a 97 gsxr 750... Its been sitting for 2 years. Ive changed the plugs, oil, fuel, cleaned fuel tank and lines, new battery, and cleaned the heck outta the carburetors. The bike will run at idle but when I ride about a mile down the road the bike just shuts off and then about 15 to 20 mins later ill be able to start it again. Some one please help?? Thanks

ninjawy kawa: kawasaki zx11 1992 timing is 1.2.4.3

mrmaxstorey: Clogged jets, vacuum leaks, bad air filter, or disconnected components of the intake system are the most common causes

steven bloomfield: sooooo.... where can i find a smoke injector

iwicdieify: hey man, i got a question, when i check putting the negative onto the ignition coil and the positive into the plug doesn't read anything but the plug is new and the wire too, it could be the ignition coil?? and also mark 4.0 when i test the ignition coil i have to replace that?? thanks

mrmaxstorey: For a healthy spark it should be fat and blue

mrmaxstorey: Nothing about clutch plates, but I do have several engine videos up, such as how to replace the head gasket, and how to replace timing belt

mrmaxstorey: If you can find one. Pretty much all bikes use their own CDI's. What bike are you working on?

MrGerryking21: So how wold I find that and what's the hot wire u talk about?

DasSlavik: I have no reaction at all from the starter button on my Yamaha xs1100S. Is the "CDI box" the same as the 'Ignition Unit?' And if the Ignition Unit is bad will it kill a running engine and will there be no reaction at all from the button?

mrmaxstorey: Check out the motorcycle diagnostic website I made, it will cover all kinds of problems better than I could in a video. TheMotorcycleMedic (dot) com

hoochipappie: maybe you should burn it???

jose cardinal: its better 2stroke are smoke..and are 4stroke are not better to smoke..

ninjawy kawa: thnx, i will.

mrmaxstorey: Nice

ninjawy kawa: thnx for ur reply , the problem is that i can't find a replacement in my country ,can i use another bike cdi that has the same ignition timing ?

mrmaxstorey: Then yeah go for it. Solder another wire onto it and youre good to go

george lucas weiss: man, my cbr 450 sr 1990 has a big problem with this CDI

gksypher: Your lucky you can actually get to the circuit board on that , my one is full of plastic resin :( . I could repair it as it is prob only a transistor that is faulty .. but nooo cover the whole board in plastic so you cant get to any componants :( guuurrrrrr

uday bhaskar Medida: my yamaha bike is getting off while running, my battery is ok and carburetor also cleaned what might be the problem.............please help me

mrmaxstorey: Yeah. I think its french or something

henry martin: Help, i got no spark and got a new CDI box and no start, so, i got a new ignition coil and still won't start, any advice to solve this problem, my bike is a 50cc Scooter chinese 4 stroke 2009,thanks.

steven bloomfield: lol
