    No spark, help needed.

    Post by Jamie on Tue Nov 06, 2012 6:48 am

    I have an odd problem with my PX at the moment, i have no spark. i have a new plug, new HT cable, new CDI/Coil, i have tested the stator plate. and all is as it should be. im thinking there could be a short somewhere between the ignition switch and the engine perhaps? and help is very much appreciated.

    Will PM you a response about the ignition key wiring - public forum, don't want to promote hot-wiring etc etc.

    As the ignition earth is ok. What were the resistance readings off the stator?

    I'm just going to chuck daft thoughts at you:

    are the two green wires in the CDI the right way round?

    Have you tried a CDI, plug, cap and lead off a known working scoot?

    Is the flywheel definitely turning? (i.e woodruff key is present and correct)

    Did you check the right wires with the multimeter?

    Wires are the right way round, i will try the cdi, plug and lead on alex's scoot tomorrow if he lets me. flywheel is sound. and i checked everything a few times with the multi meter.

    if i test it on the t5 and it works on there i will just take it down to the local shop and they can see what they make of it.
    Cheers mate!!

    You mean swap the stator onto the t5? (if so, they're different). If all else fails then take a punt on a new stator for 50-60 notes, as there's nowt much else it can be other than the flywheel, which is unlikely tbh

    i will swap over the CDI/stator, ht cable and sparkey. see if the T5 runs with them, that way i can rule out those bits being falty.

    To eliminate the ignition switch problem could you not by pass the ignition wiring on the CDI? If that cures it, trace the wiring back. If not, i would look at getting a new stator or at least swapping for a known good one.

    Turns out it was the pick up on the stator plate. readings were ok, but it just didnt work. so i have done about 1000miles on the new one and not a problem.
