I want to play a Game... (No-Spark)
Hello fellow wrench monkeys.
Let me start off by saying that I bought a horrible,rusty and yet RUNNING CB250 Two-Fifty, in hopes of turning it into a beautiful cafe racer.
This bike had a broken ignition switch which needed replacing. Having the spare in hand, I decided instead of unplugging the connections as a smart person would, to instead cut the loom and save some time.
There are 6 wires in the loom, Red,Black,Green,Black/White, and a Red/Black wire which loops around and doesn't connect to the switch. The main fuse shorted when I cut the wires, and all wires came into contact with the live wire.
I have no spark whatsoever, and no idea as to why. I've done some checks based on what I've read here and bought a chinese cdi replacement to no avail. I'm guessing its the exciter coil thats done me in.
What else might be causing me to have no spark?
