Re: 99 R6 ignition problem.
yo Bishilvr, what do you mean by ignition transistor? my old key wore out about 5 months ago so had 2 replace the whole ignition switch, are they known to be a suspect for failure?
i tryed the in-line tester and check this out:
it doesnt light up when you hit the starter (but still spins up) so i would assume no voltage or signal from the cdi?, all wires have continuity in the right places from the cdi to the coils and from the coils to ground(-), there is power to the cdi and it is too grounded,
but if you flick the ignition switch on and off, i randomly spotted that the in-line tester does bulb does flick on and off?? anyone know if thats a good thing, a bad thing, or just a thing?
so is something shorting out maybe?
but that must mean some voltage is passing through the coil, i know the cdi needs cirtain info to trigger the spark, like the pick up rotor and throttle pos sensor, but they all seem in working order?
