Re: Need help getting it started
no, i do have a 7mm plug wire, says so on the wire. i cut a little section of wire above the metal ring and there is a white wire inside with a small hole. It fits in the cdi.
disconnected the kill switch, still nothing.
tried to check for spark (let me know if i did it wrong). disconnected the spark plug from the motor, connected it to the hose which was inserted in the cdi. then i pulled the clutch in to free the back wheel and lifted the back of the bike to turn the back wheel while watching the spark plug.
i did not see any sparks.
as i pop the clutch back in while riding it that little 10 feet as i get towards the end i can hear the compression (or probably just the disks re-gripping and ive been told not to intentionally ride with the clutch lever not pulled in).
hose, plug wire, its all the same thing. i'm no mechanic, clearly.
