This has been a frustrating one to figure out, but long story short I've replaced just about every component on the machine and I'm still not getting spark. Or at least not how it suppose to work...
When the engine is turning over it does not spark at all, but sometimes when I let off on the start button it will spark just once. I've played with this numerous times and it will only generate a spark like this. I've seemed to somehow come to the conclusion that this correlates to the engine or crank "rocking" backwards. Depending on where it is in the stroke the crank will rotate back in the opposite direction when the starter motor dis-engages.
I thought maybe I had a polarity problem, but this is where I'm stuck. If it is indeed a polarity problem what could cause it?
If it's not a polarity problem is it just categorized as a "weak" spark issue?
Everything seems to ohm out fine, continuity checks at each plug check out, etc, etc....
Throw me some ideas. PLEASE!
Hello my name is Ben and I have a honda 200s atc. I have just put a replacement brand new OEM carb on. The bike runs great when in the throttle but when I am idling it sounds like it is skipping going in the back out. I was wondering could I have not adjusted the air screw correctly or is it a different problem. I have adjusted the screw where I put it all the way in then 2 turns out. Do I need to do 2.5 to 3 turns or did I buy another junk carb?
