    ok then loss of compression, just googled it, its a 4 stroke so. it could be a prob with a bent or burnt out valve, or it could be rings or piston. if you got a compression tester great, if not it'll be the finger on the hole method with spark plug removed. i will presume theres hardly any compression as in it hardly moves your finger. noe to tell wether piston or valve the old trick is to put a small amount of iol in cyclinder (2 stroke best as easier to clean/burn out later), now if compression seems better you know its a valve problem if compression the same its piston or rings. if its valves your have to remove head to inspect and replace what valve has gone. if its piston or rings the barrel has to come off too. happy to advise more when you know which one of these have gone. by the way if it is the head/vavles its often more practical just to get another one with valves fitted from a breakers but thats up to you.

    As far as i know the valves have never been messed with hear is some backround on the bike . The guy that got the bike road it 1 time . then put it up for ten years .last year he sold it to someone i know. i would say the bike has no more then 35 to 50 houres of ride time on it

SOURCE: 1997 yz 125 wont start, please help

2 stroke bike are very dependent on compression. and being a bike that is 12 years old my best educated guess is that the top end needs to be rebuilt. i usually have to have the top end done on my honda about every three years.

Bad ignition coil. You can try to find the OHM specs and test it but that is what happens when you have a failing coil.

2003 Husaberg Fe 650 e no spark


Hi, Lance and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Faulty run/off switch
11. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
12. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

I have a pit bike 125 its not starting wot so ever got good spark but still not start


If you have spark them it must be gas. eather no gas or to much gas. Put it on chock, be sure the shut off valve is in on position.Now crank it over a few times , if it wont fire. Check the plug , is it wet or dry .If its wet then it may be flooded and needs to dry out and air out the cylinder.Try starting when dry. If its dry try putting a 1/2 oz of gas into the spark plug hole. replace the plug and turn it over . This will get them to fire up. Good luck DFD

Throotle sticking on my FE400e 03 model


Hi ..... The majority of throttles close with the use of a second cable and/or the return spring on the carb. Make sure you have approx' 0.2 of a movement before throttle starts to open, second cable (closing one) is 'tight', it can be adjusted at bars and carb and that the cables are correctly routed (manual will have a diagram). Try lubricating cable(s) and throttle tube on the bars. It'll be something simple .......... let us know how you get on.
