Help No Spark
Maybe someone can help. I have a 1989 Kawasaki jet ski 650sx. Got it out of storage about 5 weeks ago and it would not start, Started checking things out and found I had no spark. So after all the basic checks I tested the CDI and it tested good. Then I broke open the watertight electrical box. And every thing tested with in the service manual specs. I then tested the continuity on the wires from the stator to the electrical box and they were all fine. The only thing I haven’t ran any kind of test on is my stator. My Kawasaki shop manual only shows how to test the voltage output of your stator while the engine is running. I bought this Jet Ski new and have done all the reg. maintenance on it and I have had very little problems, until this year. I have tried a few postings on some Jet Ski forums but I am sorry to say I believe some of those guys who responded have way too much water in the head. Some suggestions were new battery, spark plugs, jump-start it, bad gas, or even carb problems. Well I put new plugs in every year, and a new battery every 2-3 years this one was going on its third year and was showing some strain so I did replace it. But I don’t think a jump-start or new gas is going to give me spark. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
