    Bad CDI lead? Try swapping wires from the #2 inside the front box there and see if it has spark. I would venture to say if you changed our the #3 coil and wire...and it still has no spark...it's the only thing left. The good news is testing it this way won't cost you a dime!

    Thanks i will try that out. Where inside the box is the #2 lead so i can try it out. I have the clymer manual but dont know if it is that specific. Thanks for all the help.

    Sorry but i am not understanding what i should check. Are you saying check the cdi lead or the spark plug wire? If you mean the cdi lead how would i sway #2 to try it out. Please be specific i havent done much electrical Many thanks.

    Once you remove the front cover, look for the wires going to the #2 coilpack and swap it for the #3 to see if maybe you just have a bad leg on the CDI wire. I had a Riva that had no spark on #3....other 2 cylinders ran great.

    Last time I did the same. I just swapped the black/white leads around to see if the spark came back to that coil.... it didn't, so I threw another CDI unit in there, and all was good thereafter.

    I now have a spare coil, which I bought in haste... I kinda hoped it was the coil... it wasn't..!!
