How to Test a Harley Davidson Ignition Coil

  1. Turn off the motorcycle. Allow the engine to become cool to the touch before proceeding.
  2. Disconnect, by hand, the two spark plug wires from the coil.
  3. Set the ohmmeter to read resistance on the “Rx1” setting.
  4. Set the ohmmeter to read resistance on the “Rx1000” setting.

Will bad stator cause no spark?

FYI: The stator coil generates the power for the spark plug and other accessories on small engines Without a stator there would be no spark at all, meaning the engine won’t run. While a stator is dying, it can produce a weak spark, causing the engine to miss or run poorly.

What happens when CDI goes bad?

The CDI is not easy to diagnose because the observable symptoms of a faulty CDI box can lead to different directions. Sometimes, a bad CDI does not cause sparks at all. Again, when a CDI box is about to go bad, it can lead to misfires, issues with starting, rough running or even stall the motor.

What causes a CDI box to go bad?

It also directs the spark plugs on how to perform especially when they have to fire. The CDI goes bad because of different reasons. Some of them go bad because they are old, others experience a wiring short while others go bad because of a faulty charging system.

Can a CDI box be repaired?

CDI will repair your ignition component, then test the part to make sure it is performing at an optimal level. CDI Electronics will return the part to you via UPS.

What causes no spark to the spark plug?

Loss of spark is caused by anything that prevents coil voltage from jumping the electrode gap at the end of the spark plug. This includes worn, fouled or damaged spark plugs, bad plug wires or a cracked distributor cap.

Can you bypass a CDI box?

You can temporarily bypass a CDI box for troubleshooting purposes. The box amplifies the small signal generated from the spinning magnet located in front of the pickup coil in the stator, just before top dead center (TDC), when your fuel-air mixture is ignited.
