Bayou 220 no spark.

Postby Nwr161282 » Sun Jun 04, 2017 6:16 pm

Good evening folks. Currently having issues trying to get a 1989 bayou 220 running. Issue was that the bike had no spark so I tested the resistance on the ignition coil and lead. All seemed good so my next port of call was to check the cdi unit resistance as per clymer manual and results says it was bad. So I've just received my new cdi but sadly still no spark.

Can anyone point me in what direction I need to go next.

Have the remains of one of these (identical year too) in the garden. Rather hardy machines. Rebuilt as a project then got bored so sold it in parts lol. Due to the age of the frame I'd be looking at earth's, make sure they're solid and connected well. Also bare in mind it could be a stator issue, again due to age, likely to unwind/fail

Would the stator effect the spark. I've checked the pick up resistance and it seems ok. I'll see if I can test the stator.
