How do you check your spark?

Recommended Posts

Tried to check mine last night as I a can't get my bike to start. I tried to hold the plug close to the header as I turned the motor over by hand, but I did not see a spark. Am I doing this correctly????

:thumbsup:

try to get the plug to sit on the engine fins. with the plug out u might be able to turn the engine over by hand and just hold the plug to the engine.

The plug must be grounded (touching engine) to spark, then kick it over. They also make a devise that goes in-line with the plug and plug wire that will indicate a spark or not.
