If you have spark (i don't care how weak it looks), you should have running, at least at low RPM... if you really have fuel and you have compression - have you tried starting fluid?
sorry for late reply, been busy with exams.
havent tried starting fluid no, compression test got about 115psi, rings arent seated yet, its getting fuel no problem, can see the mist come out of spark plug hole, strong smell of petrol, (before i turned the fuel off) i havent messed with carbs since it was running i dont think.
I turned it over trying to start before with the small spark and there wasnt even a cough.
So the stator and coil came yesterday, everything was in spec so swapped them out, apart from the plug boot, so put my other one on and again just a tiny little spark, can only jump across about 0.2mm with or without plug boot. Put the meter in the boot and got consistent 1.2 ac volts so something is happening, i held onto the plug and the ground and didnt feel a thing while turning over.
Then i tried some more continuity tests which i should've done sooner, as the orange wire has continuity to the frame, as does a few other wires coming from the middle cdi plug, but only when plugged in, disconnect the middle plug and orange wire does not ground.
So to me it seems the cdi's at fault, shouldn't the orange wire be separated from the ground until the plug tip?, maybe putting the heavy battery charger on it fried it
As before im near broke, so it'll be a breakers cdi, or a new Chinese one, anybody had any success with the cheap $50 ones? parts where i am are usually 4x the price of u.s stuff when it comes to quads breaking.
thanks for the help so far also
