    Question 1999 Yamaha Exciter 270 - no spark on cylinder #3 of Left engine

    Hello All,

    Need some help. I'm having issues with my left engine It's running on only 2 cylinders right now.

    I used a spark plug light tester and I can confirm that cylinder 3 is not sparking. I opened up the coild pack box and took coil #3 completely out. Checked resistance and everything was checking out fine. I plugged that coil to wire #2 and it worked. I then plugged in coil #2 to wire #3 (inside the black box) and no spark.

    I'm guessing it could be the CDI box for some reason that is fried or the stator? I say the stator because of information I've read on the forums.... What do you guys think? Did anybody else have this issue?

    negative check reistance with ohm meter from spark plug boot to end of wire, probably the spark plug boot is loose.

    ahhh ok no signal to fire #3 sounds like a wiring issue, download the manual or order one and start checking components could be flywheel could be the sensor, pull the front cover and have a look.
