XR650L

Recommended Posts

HI guys I have a 2008 XR650L and it won't start , it was going well and then nothing.i have read some forum's and there are a few different "fixes" my CDI or black box next to the battery seems to be humming when the ignition is turned on, is this normal? I live on an island in the west indies so I can't just keep ordering parts (huge import duties) and there is no dealer here.any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

I have just re-built the carb and it was running fine.
There is compression but no spark . ( if I let it sit for a while and try start it starts up ,dies straight away and then it just cranks "no spark") .
And like I said the black box next to the battery is buzzing once egnition is on.

Smack the back of the CDI in the battery box with a screwdriver handle,,,,sharply all over the back of it,,,it is potted in rubber and won`t hurt it,,but if it runs after then you know the CDI has bad solder joints...

oh,read this..
