Ft500 No Spark Problem

Recommended Posts


Hope this is posted in the right place as this is my first time on Thumpers.

Help please, I have recently bought a 1982 FT500 that has no spark.

As I live on a Caribbean island, parts and info are non existant. I was convinced that the problem was the CDI unit. I put a live feed to the coil and got a spark to the plug, it even ran for a second. I checked that there was an output from the generator which there was (although I do not have the correct figures available) everything was pointing to the CDI as very little power was coming from it. I ordered a new one from the UK, 4 weeks later, the part arrives but still no spark.

Has anybody else had this, I would appreciate any advice or testing figures.
