no fire

Postby ucboo » Sun Jun 10, 2012 11:35 am



Went to get the Gold Pony out yesterday and she wouldn't start. Checked kill switch and it is on but getting no fire to any of the plugs. Any suggestions to what the problem may be. :?:

Try working the kill switch back and forth. Sometimes they get dirty and stick. If it's dirty you can spray contact cleaner into the switch to clean it. Start with the easy things first. Then we'll work thru the rest of the system.

Here's a post I made up to test the ignition system.It may help and the meter is useful for other things too.viewtopic.php?f=16&t=11800

Haven't had a chance to work on the bike for a couple of days due to my (Great) mother-in-law taking a terrible fall on a concrete floor and hitting her head really bad. Thanks for the info and as soon as I can try these suggestions I will let everyone know if it is fixed or if I need to check something else. Thanks guys you are a GREAT group of people.
