Greetings! I purchased my third Ninja 250 (a 1999) a few months back for $500 as a non-running project bike. The previous owner was young, dumb, and broke and couldnt afford to get the bike running. Him and his friend spent hours with the damn thing and they couldnt get a spark out of either wire. I bought it off of him and took it home to strip it down. I spent days on it with my voltometer trying to find where the electrical problem was. I have the repair manual and I tried EVERYTHING. I finally decided that It had to be the IC Ignitor as I had voltage everywhere I needed it and there were no breaks in any of the wires or circuits. I bought a used IC ignitor off of a "running parts bike" on ebay. I put it on the bike, ran my jumpers to the battery and started cranking. STILL NO SPARK! AHHH! I then took it to my shop, he spent a week with it, thought it was the stator and he put a new one on. STILL NO SPARK. Now he also thinks its the IC Ignitor, but thinks its very unlikely that both of them are bad. Is there anyone out there that would be willing to test one of them for me on their bike to see it is the root of all my frustration? Do you think it could be something else? PLEASE HELP [email protected]
