Update!

Adjusted the valves, checked the carb, new plug, new oil and fuel, but still no go? Any suggestions, I don't think there is anything mechanical wrong with the bike, piston goes up and down, valves appear to be working normally, no metal particles in the oil, no strange noises when cranking the bike, no strange resistance when kickstarting. I think the problem lays with the ignition.

I read the other topic currently on the forum about another 2002 husa having ignition problems and not starting and there 'sparks' advised to check the ohm between red and black and black and green on the coil.

Red and black is 2799, black and green is 123, is this good or bad? I also tried to measure the VAC between black an red when starting, but how exactly does one do this, I connected my multimeter to the red and black wire, and then tried to kickstart it, but it gives no reading? What am I doing wrong?

you should cut 'n paste the question straight into that great thread. sparks will see it and answer it for you.

the origiinal problem goes back to the wheelie! Have you done a compression test? i think you may have bent a valve, hence why you feel more resistance on one valve, more than the other.
Next suggestion is the valve timing.. it may have jumped a tooth, have you rechecked the timing.

wont start

Hi,

Sounds like you are still having problems, your test between red and black is good but black and green is a bit low should read 165 170 Ohms.
When you are testing for peak voltage not all meters have this fosility.
You need to test the intensity of the spark remove the plug and put a piece of wire in the plug cap and rest this about 10mm from the head turn the engine over and if the ignition is good it will jump this gap with no problem, let me know how you get on.

Regards

Sparks.

RE: wont start

Ok, I myself was desperate to get my bike started, I had everything checked like you, did all I could to make it start FOREVER, until I took it to Berger's house (twice, note) and he showed me how to kick the bastige.

So, I don't want to insult you or your left leg, but are you sure you have the right kicking technique?

It took me a little while to acquire the muscle memory.

youre right i think you have an electrical problem. something moved in the wheelie and earthed out your system. try starting it with no tank or seat on. could even try kickstarting it in the pitch dark to look for a stray spark.

otherwise you've got to get around the bike with a multimeter and check all connections and circuits.

my husey is an '02 and the electrics were bloody awful. please read my pertinent electrical points in the doc.

RE: wont start

Sorry for the late reply but was out of country for two weeks.

I'll try and check all the things you guys suggested and keep you guys posted!

@ Lefrog, my starting tecnhnique: Turn the engine over until i got compression, open decomp push it just past compression, let the kick come up all the way, give it one full turn of the throttle, and then kick it with throttle closed, started perfect every time i did it this way. Used choke when cold no choke when hot. So I don't think this is the problem.
