So hear i have 1992 red seca and 94 parts bike. Red bike has no spark all four cyl. :thumbdown: What ive done so far: I did the nospark test from this site. Coils check out resistance primary,secondary and caps. All of my saftey switches are good as tested. Pick up sensor is with in range for ohms.tested the whole wiring harness i even swapped from the other bike! Relays check out good! Fuses all good all test lead back to cdi box yellow bike also had a cdi box but no luck whit spark.could i have 2 bad cdi boxes?
Progress ive made: swapped the bent forks out for the yellow bikes striaght ones. I took swing arm apart cleaned and regreased bushings. I went throuhg the carbs and fuel pump gave them a good cleaning inside and out. Degreesed motor frame wheels chain and sprocket witch look good😊bike was gross when i got it lol. Im conveting to a naked/streetfighter look.

So Toady I figured out the no spark issue! For what ever reason when I unplugged the rear brake lamp connector from the harness it made the bike spark!!? :thumbsup: :prob: There must be a wire touching or something... didn't think that had anything to do with ignition. so fuel pump is spent even though i cleaned in side. I made a gatorade bottle gravity fed line. when i put gas in the floats all stuck open on me :( so after pumping excess gas out of the intake/plug holes i took the carbs apart and cleaned the needles and seats a second time that seemed to do it! So got it all hocked up choke on and se came to life!!! even though it sounded like a zombie lawn mower :lolno: I need to give the carb a more in depth clean and i think it will run nice.

So a much needed update ! Got a new 7" headlight and brakets. Preped, paited and developed front fender with cheap red spray paint took my time wet sanding and polishing :thumbsup: bike was running awful some one had the pilot screws 3 1/2 turns out!! Reset them to 2 and runs better. Now i need to get a petcock and fuel pump its to weak to keep up with carbs. And the petcock leaks.

fender looks good, but you'll want to sort out those forks and seals.

I totally missed those. Yep, grimey. Add those (and a fork oil change) to your list.

thanks! I'm working on a fuel delivery issue i have 2 weak pumps I'm converting to a 12v low psi carb fuel pump. and when the bike get hot seems to die :( the coils are good. i tested the pick up sensor coil with a heat gun on it didn't fail when got hot and had respectable resistance :ponder: i must have a bad connection or ground with is a whole other mess. fork seals will be next for sure just have not got to them yet :thumbdown:
