How do you check motorcycle wires?
First measure the resistance between the primary wire that comes from the CDI box and the ground or ground wire. The resistance should measure around . 5 to 1.5 Ohms. If that checks out, you can then measure the resistance between the secondary wire (plug wire), w hich should measure in the thousands.
How long does it take to rewire a motorcycle?
Re: How Long Should It Take a Professional to Rewire (Complete) My CB550? Depending upon the extent of the work, I'd say best case 4 hours, worst case 2 days. The latter would be having to essentially re-run the main harness and crimp new connectors, wrap and route. Repair the major sub harnesses too.
What could cause a motorcycle not to start?
One potential issue that might be keeping your motorcycle from starting up is a clogged petcock. The petcock is a fuel control valve. It controls the gas flow between off, on, and reserve settings. Clogged petcocks are a common issue that riders often bring up in forums.
Will a motorcycle start with a bad stator?
If the stator is bad, the bike won't run at all. The stator generates energy for spark. Assuming the air cleaner is clean and other general maintenance has been performed, if the bike won't kick start but runs as you state, the problem is probably either the spark plug and/or fuel delivery.
