I'm new on this forum, so at first I would like to say HELLO!!!!
I have a problem with my FE501 Berg (2001).
I have just mounted e-starter with brand new battery.
Engine starts "from first kick" (cold or warm), but I can't start it from electric starter.
After small investigation I know that there is no spark on spark plug when I try to use e-starter.
What I have measured:
-I have around 50-60VAC between red-black wire from stator (using kickstarter or e-starter)
-3,5-3,7VAC between green-blac wire using e-starter and 5,5-5,7VAC using kickstarter (I know that those measurements are depend on strenght of my muscle and e-starter/battery condition but I also know it can be compare to other machines)
-resistance green-black 215ohm
-resistance red-black 1,64kohm
I have borrowed CDI unit (ICU 10) from my brothers 501 berg ............and my berg starts very nice.
There was nice visible spark with my brothers CDI unit.
In my berg CDI unit has only 3 cables from generator (red/green/black) and two for motor bike wiring (orange-kill,black-ground) so I don't have possibility to conect Hi/Lo switch it looks like factory made........
Does someone has similar situation/problem?
On 18.09 I will take my Berg to Romania but at first I want my E-STARTER!!!!!
