2008 FE450 No Spark Wiring? Help Me !

Hi Guys, Been on here stalking for while a while now, read all sorts of posts, some really helpful info on here, does take a bit of digging to find...the juicey stuff

The Owners docs etc have been very useful, anyway about 2 weeks ago i took the plunge and bought a 2008 FE450E, supermoto'd, & with stock wheels fully road legal, great bike for the last 2 weeks no problems at all.

Other than....Tuesday, went to work, home, football match (up the owls..) and back home, everything fine. Rolled out next morning to work, nothing...won't start, went through entire decomp procedure, 3/4 times, gave up. same again that evening, again nothing, pulled spark plug out no spark. new plug, no spark and for peace of mind I had bought 2 at the same time again nothing.

It has a red NGK spark cap standard ? how it this connected above?

I've been through all the procedures from the husaberg manual. dissconnecting both kill switch and elecstart and kicking over again nothing...could anyone shread some light ?

is it your start procedure? isn't there a button and a key? isn't the kill switch and the starter button red?

regards

Taffy, thought the reply would be from you...

On the left side i have head light switchs, on the back it has horn and red switch which i have been using as off button,

On the right i have the electric start button only, does this also kill ?

It doesn't have any keys, nor is there a on/off button before the electric start button, (which i did have on my WR)

when you hit the kill button it isn't a press button. it's a click button. click once and it's off, click it again and it's ready to go. follow me?

Yes, I follow what your saying its proper off first click, click again to turn on. & then hit the elec start on right
(if your on about the switch on the combination switch on the left.

I've only ever pressed the switch on combination (left) switch. Once to turn off, never had to 'reset' (click again to on) I've alway just hit the electric start on the right.

Since this problem I have tried give that button various click to see if its not working properly. but with no spark either way.

For confirmation does the electric start button also kill ?

On onther point someone on another post has mentioned a repair manual, I have the '06 Owners manual is this the same thing? (I was going to multi meter test everything)

disconnect both yellow and black wires behind the headlight, your kill switches will be eliminated and it may start, you will have to stall it via the gears if it goes, there was a problem once with a faulty start/stop switch, if not you have bigger issues, and if you havnt played with it it could be stator or CDI but CDI hardly ever go look for a crook connection in the wiring connectors.

disconnect both yellow and black wires behind the headlight
I have done this already no joy, i dissconnected also under the petrol tank unit. again yellow & black.

Looking through the owners manual, the combination switch doesn't seem to be a two way button, it is only marked with a circle with an arrow crossed out. now does it push in and hole in.

I will look through the connectors first. and report back tommorrow.

Thanks for the comments.

For closure of this thread.

After 2 hour search and testing wires around the headlight and front, everything does work as it should !
Turns out the cdi unit had become slightly unclipped.

Thanks for your for help and suggestions.
