TRX300 Deer Getter

1993 Honda TRX300 No Spark

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

First time poster here.  I have a '93 TRX300 with no spark.  Measuring 100 volts pulsing at the coil then declining down to 90, 80, 70, 60 and so on.  I assume it's the coil.  If there's voltage to the coil then everything else should be in working order, right?

Thanks for your help,

Deer Getter

Sounds like it could be the coil. They are cheap on Amazon, I would try and swap it out to see.

I haven't checked anything upstream of the coil because i'm getting voltage to the coil.  I just don't have a repair manual so I don't know what voltage i should expect.  I ordered a coil from amazon so if that doesn't work i'll start more diagnosis.

I had a no spark issue and it ended up being a R/B wire that was not connected on the main harness - if you've shaken down everything else already might want to look for wiring gremlins.

I just fixed my 1993 Honda 300fw four trax.    Replaced the  i c m  ECM or what ever it is called.  Computer module.   Unit rides in a little harness right in front of the steering column.   Remove front cowling and replace  Very easy to do.   Was getting no spark.   Replace the module and bingo.  Cranked right up.

Sweet, appreciate the insight.  I have a coil i'm going to try today, if that doesn't work i'll move to the ECM.

Good call, there's always a chance Stuart Little got in there for a midnight snack...I'm hoping a new coil works for me, if not i'll download the service manual and move upstream to the computers and control modules.

I'm have the same issue so thanks for help. I'll look for wires that are chew on first.

      '11 Grizz 700 here.  Since I've got some warm weather these next couple days I've decided to start the bike after about a year of just sitting.  Took out the plug and sprayed a good amount of fogging oil on top of the piston to help lubricate things.  After about a minute of letting it soak I stuck my air line tubing in to suck out the excess, but it seems like I didn't get nearly as much in return.  Repositioned the tube enough so that everything that was gonna come out pretty much did.  I'll probably shoot some compressed air down the plug hole before doing the start just to make sure it's all out, as well as cranking it for a second before putting the plug back in.   How long would it take for a bit of standing fogging oil to seep past the piston rings, and where would it go?  I guess into the engine oil?  The oil was fairly new the last time it was started but I'm sure it could stand to be changed after sitting for so long.  If much of this fogging oil got into the engine oil should I do the change before the startup?

      I have a Kawasak i KLF185 Bayou which is in bits - bought as such and never managed to get going.  I have not had a spark and tried two OEM CDI's on it.  I have replaced the coil and plug and checked the wiring to CDI.  I have also tried to use other CDI's (DC ones) run from the battery.  Nothing, still no spark, so I have managed to find a new pickup coil and hope that resolves things - any input on this would be appreciated.
