not getting spark

bought an 01 bandit 1200

The bike had to be running to get into a wreck, so it had to have spark before. brought it home, had no key, I took out the tumblers so i could get the ignition to the on position. everything turns over I just have no spark.


question: Is there a tip over switch on this bike?

I've had this same problem on a 03 gsxr 1000 I had before. but once I got the ignition turned on it worked just fine.

Noe of the wire harness was damaged in the wreck. everything looks good


thanks for the help.

Albert

Maybe your solenoid ? Check it out and see, I always start from the power source and check up through everything dealing with the ignitiOn source.

Check fuses, of course. Power to igniter box. Wire from pick up coil to igniter.

looked like it might have flipped. forks are tweaked and the subframe is trash exhaust was broken off. bent back rim. nose fairing was bent but not messed up too bad.

no wiring damage including handlebar switches.

everything seems to have power.

Let me do some more digging around and I might take you up on that offer.


I did forget to mention that I took the throttle position sensor of an 05 gs 500 and put on the bandit. the one on the badit was cracked. it was a direct fit including connector

well I walked ou there and I it had spark. It has something to do with the ignition switch. I'm think that is does have a TOS and it has something to do with that. the only think thats moving is the ignition switch. I'll mess with it more tomorrow
