having a bit of an annoying issue of my 91 cbr250RR running on 3 cylinders.
originally was an issue of it not starting, and mechanic found that ignition switch/wiring was burnt out. +replaced it.
bike now starts.. but it looks as if he's forgotten to plug something back in, because my dash doesn't light up, and my neutral and sidestand lights don't light back up either.
HOWEVER, the guy also did a service on the bike, pulled carbs apart, cleaned them etc.
after this the bike was running on 3 cylinders.
he did a 'compression test' thing on the cylinders and found that one had less than normal compression (i believe).
he simply suggested to buy a new cdi and left it at that.
can tell by spraying water on the headerpipes, 1 has no heat.
checked the plug for that cylinder, looked fine, tested the lead with a screwdriver to make sure power is getting to it. it is.
swapped the coils. no change.
my question now is, what should I check NEXT.
(it would be good if I could fix this easily and not have this mechanics worthless hands on my bike again).
ps. I just read this from an old post of someone else having a cylinder not firing.
"do you have the speedo/dash hooked up?
If you haven't, you'll be chasing that miss for ever." -- Studricho.
my dash doesnt light up? is that related? anyway.
any help would be appreciated.
