I’d been away for a few days riding, 4 to 6 hours a day, got home yesterday, hosed with water to wash the road grime off (after it cooled). Now it won’t start, winds over but no spark.
Any help on where to start appreciated…

Jetwashing isn’t usually ideal, since water wants to get to the wires or creep up in to places it shouldn’t.
Start by checking the plugs aint wet? – Check your ignition coils mounted on the frame and also the HT Cap isn’t wet too. Let us know how they are before we dig deeper.

Thanks for the reply, it was only hosed with tap pressure not high pressure but either way I won’t be doing it again….
I have cleaned all connections and still have no spark at either spark plug,
not sure what to check next.
As a side note the rear turn indicators aren’t working either.

Does anyone know what the ohm resistance from the pickup/pulse sensor should be?

I would have thought if it’s like most pick ups its between 85-105 ohms

Hey guys, it ended up being the pick up coil, just a tip if you buy a cheap after market one, the wires are backwards.
