Shadow 600 wont start

Post by fibersport »



I've got a Shadow 600 I'm trying to sell. Actually had it sold until the guy called 10 minutes later saying it started backfiring and then quit. I couldn't take advantage of him so I bought it back. Anyway, I cleaned the carb twice, changed out the gas charged the battery and tried it again. All I get is backfiring through the carb. I tested the battery and found it had a dead cell so I then connected my boat battery. I have a test spark plug that shows spark, only it seems to be an intermittent spark on some wires and no spark at all on others. I'm thinking it's coils, anyone have any other thoughts?
