Xr650r that won't start
Alright gents I need a couple extra opinions on my current situation. I can't get my bike to start again after it died a few months back. It was running fine on a new engine rebuild until I turned into the bar and it sputtered and died. I figured it was low on fuel and didn't bother with it. When I went to leave I couldn't get it to start. It hasn't started since.
After the carb cleaning it would periodically fire 3-4 revolutions then die. Barely more than the spin of the kick. Starting fluid has no effect other than raising the amount of backfires.
I swapped on my recently rebuilt HS40 Carb (mikuni tm40) to see if it was still a plugged pilot circuit. No change except it will fire 3-4 revolutions every other kick now. I think that is because the accelerator pump allows me to toss fuel in. I didn't want to add another variable(new carb) but I wanted to rule out the stock carb as the issue.
So my thinking is that it could be one of a few things:
My current thinking is that I have spark but the bike won't fire more than 3-4 revolutions so the spark may be weak or out of time.
Can the coil pickup or stator be tested? How?
Any other ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
