Yet another 06 zzr600 no spark
SOLVED scroll down.
So... I bought a project bike, and boy has it become a headache. bought it off craigslist. Minimal information on the bike itself from the guy i bought it from. All he told me was he traded an old jeep for it. long story short he couldn't get it running sold it to me.
I have tried everything i could think of to get it to spark...cranks great no spark. first i replaced the pick up coil... both old and new read 462 ohms. within spec according to manual, same with all stick coils. then i replaced the ic igniter, that didn't do it. then the harness. that didn't do it. the fuse box twice, nothing. the fuel pump and pump relay, nothing. i even replaced the water temperature gauge that screws to the cylinder head, nothing. new plugs also. new neutral switch.
can anybody suggest something? all the switches work, kickstand, starter cutoff, on and off switch. i cut the sheathing off and inspected every inch of those damn wires. ive been working on this thing for over 3 weeks, read lots of forums.
the thing that makes no sense to me is... i pull the clutch in, press the start button, and the fuel pump pumps without stopping untill the fuel comes out the top of the carbs. seems like a short in the wires to me, but ive checked them multiple times.
cranks great in neutral.... BUT.... in gear or clutch pulled in. only the fuel pumps like a mad man never stops even if i plug the outlet.
please and thank you to anyone that reads this.
