2005 Yamaha Bruin 250 2wd No Spark

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 I registered on this site because I just purchased a new to me 2005 Yamaha Bruin 250 2wd. This seems to be the only place to get diagrams so I'm hoping I can download them sooner or later. The guy I bought it from said it had no spark. And it truly does not have spark...lol

I haven't looked into much on it. Looks like he replaced the ignition switch and the stator. I'm thinking CDI box but I want to check the coil first.

I look forward to helping others out on the electrical end of the world. I am an ASE certified automotive electrical technician. If it's 12v, I can usually figure it out.

Working on this right now. I will figure it out soon enough but I figured I would ask in here in case someone has a suggestion.

 I just purchased a 2005 Bruin 250 2wd. It has no spark. They replacement the stator and the ignition switch. Is the CDI box a common failure on these machines?

The cdi is definitely a factor.  If it gets moisture in it or damaged it’s pretty much done.  Have you looked at the entire wiring of the bike? Kill switches, safety switches etc.  Test the stator to make sure that it’s good. Even though it’s new.  Also the ignition coil.  This can be done by referring to the manual.  You need an electrical tester with an ohms setting on it.  

Then after that is done maybe consider a new cdi.

lol I pretty much joined for the same reason; to 'unlock cheat codes' for a Kawasaki. Picked mine up on the cheap due to carb problems, but it's also sat for 9 months and the battery needs charged. As a former auto mechanic myself, I'm pretty sure I know how to fix it, but was hoping to score a service manual before I tear into it. 

Good luck on your project; looks like you're on the right path. I'd be checking the coil first as well.

Haha thanks!

I dug into it this afternoon. Looks like the secondary circuit on the coil is open so I ordered one of those first. The CDI box is interested though, I'm not getting a "positive" pulse from it to the coil. I see a ground pulse though. Isn't the CDI supposed to send a 12v signal? The shop manual didn't offer much insight on how the circuit works lol

Glad to see I'm not the only one looking to unlock the cheat codes. Looks like there"s a bunch of info on this site.

Well after replacing the Ignition coil I still didn't have pulse for spark.  I bought a DVA adapter for my multimeter and checked the stator circuit going to the CDI. The CDI had signal coming in, power, and ground. 

 

So the CDI was presumably bad. I went ahead and replaced it and got spark back. She's been sitting for who knows how many years but now she runs!

      I recently got a 98 warrior 350 that 'needed the carb adjusted' but the reality is it has no spark. I have a new spark plug, plug wire, ignition coil, battery, and cdi box. I checked continuity and took apart and inspected the starter/kill/light switch on the handle bar, and it all looks brand new and checked out. The key switch seems to be working properly, as when off, nothing works, but when switched on, lights and electric starter button work. It turns over fine, and as I just stated, all the lights work. I took all the plastics off and traced all the wires, and only one had a small cut in it, but it was only through the rubber sheathing, not the wire itself (the blue one coming from the stator). I cleaned some grounds, made sure both relays work, and still nothing. I pulled the stator cover and looked at the stator itself, and it looks great. No broken wires or connectors or anything. Still, no spark. I'm at a loss. Where do I go next? Any help is appreciated.

      I have a Yamaha 350 in at once to try to fire up but won't. It's getting gas fire air and it has a lot of compression but still struggles to start check the timing it's top dead center valves are good valves are adjusted everything's working but won't fire I put my hand over the carb suck in gas and it tries to but it makes a lot of black smoke. Also when I put my hand over do you carb and tried to start it there's black black nasty stuff in the gas. So I don't know if it's trying to burn too much or what it is the gas tank clean and it anything to do with the gas it's with it firing. Took the spark plug out and it's pure black. What is dried up black not nasty corroded wet looking. Need help to solve the issue

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?

      Need some help please. I am trying to set timing on 4x4 350 bruin 2006. My brother and I disagree on which ones to use. If anyone has a picture they could share I would greatly appreciate it

      Recently, I changed the timing chain. I lined up all timing marks and set valve lash at TDC.  The mark on flywheel was on point as well when I looked through sight hole. I started the engine and starter turned it over then it hit and stuck. I did it one more time and the same thing happened. I took everything off and saw no damage. I tried to turn it over by hand and same thing. It turns halfway or so and hits. I loosened valve lash and took crank gear off and it does the same thing. It will turn over clockwise fully but not CCW. It seems like the crank sub assembly weight is hitting the gear balancer weight. I can turn crankshaft CCW while turning the gear balancer CW and get it to go but feel it hitting something. I also can spin crankshaft CCW without crank gear on and force the engine to break past the stick. It’s not the piston.
      Please give me some suggestions thanks

      Hi, think water got into the tank, have managed to drain fuel (not the best experience) and empty the carb of fuel ........ so it starts now and runs however, it cuts out on fuel and won’t restart, it will restart on reserve ?  When I turn it off and back onto fuel, it will start again.  If I take for a short run on fuel it will cut out again and only restart on reserve 😳. Any ideas what else I can check.  Many thanks
