Well, last weekend I headed out to pick up a few bikes, one of which was a CBR250RRMC22, the previous owner said it was a friend of his , it hadn't run in 4.5 years, he tried a shedload of things but she had no spark, he thought it was the cdi. I paid my $200 and bought the old girl home. Looks like a dog ate the front fender, that's okay I have a spare Tyga one here I hooked up a battery and low and behold, there was no spark. I started testing everything I could and still no spark. I replaced the CDI and VRE with spares I had here, still no spark, did the obvious, check fuses etc all good. I did find the side stand switch loom had a broken wire, so I just put the green\white wire to ground and tried again.. doh no spark... I thought I had found the issue, back to the drawing board. Phil came down last night to give me hand and we systematically went through everything, we tested every wire from the CDI back, We dumped the oil then Phil pulled the stator off, it was in great condition, I then decided to pull the pulse generator off, all looked clean... I pull the wires through from the loom and noticed one seemed a tad longer even though it was in the sheath.... light bulb moment ,broken wire I did a quick dodgy repair, grounded a plug to the head hit the starter... woot we have spark, we had been at it for 4 hours and it was after 11pm, so we waited until this morning to see if she would run. When I got up this morning we put some fresh oil in her, poured some fuel in and she backfired big time... I check the coil leads and they were wrong, I set the leads up properly and hit the starter again... she roared into life. The radiator wasn't fitted so Phil and I fitted that up, put in some coolant and let her run. We found the radiator is buggered, its leaking so I will need to source another... Stoked, for a bike that hasn't run in years, she revs very cleanly up to 12000, I will buy a kit from Litetek.co for her as well as some new jets and needle and seat before reassembling her. I have started putting a shopping list together... time and finances will dictate how long this old girl takes to get on the track as I want her built up as a spare bike when I do track days, super happy with progress to date Old Honda's never die !!!!
