R you going to give me answer loui please
Motorcycle Mechanic: Louie, Technician replied 10 months ago

Sorry Kent but confused:

  • new starter solinoid - would be the starter relay;
  • while still power both sides coil - would imply the ignition coil.

Which is it please?

No power from coil to plug I replace d the starter relay
Motorcycle Mechanic: Louie, Technician replied 10 months ago

The starter relay has no direct effect on the no-spark issue. The starter relay is supposed to address the clicking sound but starter motor would not spin.

Still, the description of "...power both sides coil..." (if it is the ignition coil) while attempting to start/crank would indicate that the PCM is not working as expected.

Is there a +12V to the black/white wire to the PCM?

Is there pulsating low voltage between the blue/yellow and green wires of the CKP sensor when attempting to start?
