Hi,
I bought an 05 zx6r thats been sitting unstarted for a few years.
Slowly going through the bike. At the moment I'm not getting any spark.
Ive checked and theres continuity from ECU plug to the coils. Coils are in spec as per the manual.
Plugs are new and as per manual.
Im just not sure if theres any more tests I should be doing before I blame the ECU
as being cooked. The bottom set of fuel injectors when theyre plugged in, so I assume thats the job
of the ECU.

Thanks.

Hi
I shouldnt have posted after watching 5 hours of online lectures...
Thanks for the list. Went through and did some checks
Sidestand switch is in spec as per manual and plugged in
Battery is good.
Kill button functioning and is in run position.
I just found that the neutral sensor has no lead running to it.
Could this be the problem?

It could be. If your green neutral light isnt on, the only way the engine could be started is with the kickstand up and the clutch lever pulled all the way in.

So, unplugged everything and then plugged it all back in. Found that the brake light switch for the front brake wasnt plugged in. Then ground the plugs and tried for spark again. Coil number 1. No spark. Coil number 2. spark.......
Coil number 3. No spark. Coil number 4. No spark.
I tried coil number 2 on all the other coils and got spark. So maybe its been the unplugged brake light switch plus bad coils or maybe its black magic. Either way, Ive got 4 new coils on the way.
