first of all, I did a visual inspection of my stator and it looks great.
I also did another visual inspection of my pick up coil and cleaned the faces and that looks ok.
The CDI on the bike says 2000 zx6r on the front...but it also says zzr600 04/05 on the back. I have heard some parts on these bikes are interchangeable, however please review picture C. The top row of connections is the wiring harness that is on the bike.
the middle row is the CDI on the bike marked 2000 zx6r on the front but zzr600 on the back.
the bottom row is the extra harness that was tried by the mechanic and found "not to work". Keep in mind, one of the connections inside the CDI mentioned had a bent pin and the ignition wire was not connecting to it.


STATOR


the extra connections are for fuel cut california only fml.






what am i missing.
its like chasing a ghost

I dont know if any of you guys have worked on something for what seemed like an eternity, and then one day you get it running.
But man let me tell ya, when i saw that fat blue spark, i threw my hands up in victory.
Its alive.
now on to reattach all the wiring correctly and clean the carbs, I will start a build thread. In the end, after the previous owner bought a new CDI, wiring harness, what looks like a new pick up coil, sent it to a mechanic...Then he cut up both wiring harnesess and bent all kind of connections....In the end it was one wire that prevented the bike from starting.
0 dollar fix.
unreal.
Thanks for all the help, now I know this bike's electrical backwards and frowards and can probably recite the entire wiring harness from memory. I like to learn stuff
Best,
Mace

Not a mechanic as such, but a background in Engineering and a long history of not wanting to pay someone for a job that invariably they just throw parts at!

It seems as though you are nearly there. CDI's rarely break down, it is much more likely something else. Some more things to try.

1. Has the bike got any failsafes, such as sidestand cut-off, clutch lever cutoff? Sometimes the microswitches stick and need to be freed off, especially if the bike has been sitting for a long time. Also, a previous owner may have bodged a bypass that may have come unbodged!

2. Check the ignition circuit for continuity to see if you have any breaks in the cabling.

3. Spray the switch gear with a good quality contact cleaner, not WD40, GT spray, etc.

Good luck and keep us updated. The weather is going to be good (in the UK) so it will great to get out on your bike.

Thanks! and thanks for what you do. I too have an Engineering background although I was just a field tech.
And I too, do not enjoy handing a job over to someone who professes to be a professional if I can do it myself. And with the internet we have access to any knowledge available which in the near future will cancel out all professions and even the odds. ( not to mention a computer can do almost any profession better than any human)
Pros vs. Joes!
The weather here in South Florida is 90+ year round so Its only nice to ride early in the morning or sunset.
Thanks again and keep on with the quality posting!

The bike is running great
