KLF300 1994 spark plug cap resistance


Go to solution Solved by Params_sweden,

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm new to the forums :) I'm working on my klf300 that isn't starting anymore. I accidentally ripped apart the spark plug cap, and I'm curious to know the resistance of the original part, it's not mentioned in the manuals. If anyone with a KLF300 could measure their OEM or known working replacement spark plug cap I would be very happy :) NGK for example has spark caps with resistances 0, 5, 10, 15 ohms so it seems to be something that I would like to match as close as possible with the original part.

Thanks,

Pär, Sweden

The test in the book says to test the coil with the cap off the lead, and it should be between 10-16 Kohms..  I suspect the cap doesn't have a resistor built into it.

Use a small split pit shoved up the lead and clipped onto the spark plug and try running it, if it runs ok and doesn't make massive interference to a nearby radio then it will probably have a resistor lead on the coil and it will be ok with a zero resistance cap.

Thanks for your input, I'll give the radio test a try in a moment! Like almost every Bayou owner mine has ignition issues, in my case weak spark or no spark, so I'm trying to rule out everything one step at a time. I ordered a NGK spark plug cap VD05F with 5kOhms resistance, it was like 30% of the OEM part price :)

@Gwbarm Yeah feels good! I bought an aftermarket China part from a Swedish seller, unfortunately it's a no-name product, when I got it it didn't match the image on the sellers site. Here's a link https://www.merafritid.se/tändspole-kawasaki . It came without spark plug cap, the "ignition wire" has a black outer rubber and a white center.

      I have been exploring all the options available, so many, its hard to choose. I have kind of narrowed it down to the Honda Pilot, Subaru Outback, and Kind of looking at the Outlander, although its a little small,  the new one is nice looking. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations or gripes with any of these rides. I have driven Jeeps for the past 25  years and they have been great, but their price point has gotten to high. Expieriences good or bad would be helpful. Thanks!

      Hello everyone, I just picked up an 02 LT-F250F the other day and have been in the process of tearing it down to fix some stuff- one of which was the cylinder base gasket leaking like a sieve. Well, I know why that is now, and I also discovered that someone had been in there before. I didn't take pictures, but it looks like it was probably run low on oil at some point, the cam journals and the "bearings" (for lack of a better term) in the head and the valve cover are totally wiped out, very deep grooves.  From what I know it's very difficult to repair aluminum in this way, so I'm trying to figure out where to go next.
       
      1. Have someone grind down the head and valve cover and fit actual bearings in since the aluminum is screwed, and have the cam ground down to match.  I have no idea what this would cost.
      2. Buy a replacement head+cam+valve cover.
       
      #1 I was hoping someone might have some advice on, but #2 seems like it'll (probably) be the more cost effective option.  However I'm running into some difficulty, it seems like the 2001 and 2002 models specifically use a different head part number,  11100-19B10, instead of  11100-19B01 like for all earlier models.  What exactly is the difference between them? There are obviously far more of the earlier heads because it ran for over 10 years.  Are they actually interchangeable? I've also noticed there are heads from the LT250EF that has 4 valve heads but also otherwise look identical.  Would those work as well possibly?  I'd like to not have to drop $500 on machine work or new heads on a $1300 quad that I'm already putting a bunch of new parts on.  Oh, and it has a new piston and the cylinder itself looks pretty good too, as I said someone was in here before me.
       
      Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I'll post pics of the carnage tomorrow.

      I’m looking for a top end kit for a Yamaha. I would like to see how well the engine runs before spending $6-$7 hundred on oem. Niche has complete kits from $1-$2 hundred.  Anyone have experience with Niche or similar Chinese companies?

      Hi, I have been around everything with a motor since I was little, and finally purchased more to get my husband, and kids involved. I have 4 quads I will be searching around for information on. I have two 2002 Suzuki LT80K quads, a 1997 Yamaha Timberwolf 250, and a 1996 Kawasaki Bayou 220. I have had different ones throughout the years, and plan on buying another Yamaha Banshee. I plan on trying to learn more about all of them, so I can customize some of them. I know nothing about them besides how to race them, my dad always took care of the rest, but figured it was time for me to learn.
