    Hello! thanks for this helpful video. By the way, I hear lots of people keep on talking about DIY bike repair guide called Bikelanox Manual (search on google), but I’m not sure if it´╗┐ is really good. Have you considered Bikelanox Manual? I have heard several unbelivable things about it and my friend finally learn how to maintenance his own bike by using it, but he refuses to tell me ­čÖü

    i have a 99cc kawasaki motor (late 70’s early 80’s?) and i only get a single spark when i move the kill switch from off to on,´╗┐ (two off settings one on) while kicking the motor over. other wise no spark is there, i tried unplugging the killswitch but i still get no spark. any ideas? im getting a reading off of the stator but its only peaking at about 150 ohms which might not be high enough?

    you need a new spark plug boot, its cracked if you´╗┐ see sparks jumping from spark plug to motor. i would also recommend getting a new plug while your at it

    can any one help me with getting my´╗┐ bike going iv got no spark here is the link to my video thank,s

  14. vonzace

    ok, heres the low down. My bike wont run, and im pretty damn´╗┐ sure its an ignition problem. When i take the plug out and test for spark, I can here it, but i dont see a spark. When plug is leaning up agianst the motor, the spark jumps from the plug to the motor, and is extreamly bright. also, when i take the plug off the wire, I can here the spark jumping somwhere, is that bad? Any healing methods tht dont involve spendin money?

    we thought that checked the ground frame is definatly grounded drilled and tapped a hole´╗┐ solded a wire on between the bold and frame tightend it down and heated again then soldered to the barb on the plug and nothing definatly not a ground problem…

  16. bikercc

    it sounds like the plug isn’t´╗┐ grounded dude, wherever your touching the plug against ins’t ground, check your ground connections your motor might not even be grounded

  17. huntdipnfish

    maybe you guys can help i got a 1980 suzuki 125 heres the deal hold the plug and ground it i get zapped try just grounding the plug no spark center post´╗┐ on the plug to the motor and it will spark to the motor but not to the ground on the plug ever. threw a new plug in same thing. any ideas what might be bad? anything can help at this point…

    :l wtf is´╗┐ a stator ?

  21. fdx424

    How much that can cost? Is´╗┐ a yamaha wr125r bike.

  22. bikercc

    you can’t repair one unless it has an internal fuse which is unlikely, you must buy a new/ used´╗┐ one to replace it.

  23. fdx424


    Can you teach me how to repair a cdi?


  24. M0N5T3R3N3RGYR4C1NG

    And there was barely any spark. so we tested all the stuff you´╗┐ said in the video and I don’t remember the results. But before I bug anybody else or spend a fortune taking it to a shop could you please tell me what you think is wrong with my bike??? Thanks.
