    96 zxi no spark.........

    i have a 96 zxi that had intermittent spark so i took the e-box apart to find water and sand and tons of corrossion. anyway, i cleaned the box out with a corrossion cleaner and redid all connections and now it wont even spark at all. what should i test/look for with values to see whats out? thanks.

    cameron, recheck all of your grounds. clean where they mount.

    there really is no test for the CDI. you will probably have to get a shop manual for the readings on the stator.

    did you grease the connections? not all grease is conductive. make sure everything is dry, and clean.

    good to see you here. help get the word out.

    ive taken all connections apart and used an electrical lubricant made for electrical equipment, i did dry the box out but when i did, it did'nt even have intermittent spark. its just dead so im sure its somthing in the box but i dont know.
    will a 900cc box work? my friend has a 900 thats blown but the e box is good and its his 1100 thats broken but i dont know if the parts will swap. as you can see, im a mechanic for all my friends..............lol.........

    i asked the same question. same problem with me 2. i found there was a fire in the e box which destroyed all my conections. then to top it off, all the wires that go to the stator cover were melted.

    i have a manual here that would cover the years of your ski for wiring diagrams if you need that just say somthing.

    go to buykawasakis website look at the diagrams and compare the models and years..

    that or go to ebay and buy a new e box.....

    hope yah figure it out man

    riva has a good on line parts list now.

    try matching numbers at www.rivaracing.com you have to add them to the cart, to get part numbers, but it is an easy site to use.

    i tried it but i dont think the 900's have the same thing as the 1100 or i dont see them.

    tiplick, what should the values be on the magneto and coils and controller? i dont have a manual cuz its my friends ski and dont own one. this could help me diagnose whats wrong, also need to know what wire the + goes to and the - goes to, thanks a bunch. hopefully it'll get it out of my yard quicker!!!
