hi all i got a 89 FZR1000 basket case .
had not run since 2000.
fresh plugs,gas,fuel pump and a carb rebuild later i got it to start using carb starter.
and it ran fine and settled into a nice idle.

but it wont start now what ever i try.
i suspect the choke circuit is a problem.
but i will not even fire.with or without starter fluid.

any pointers would be appreciated

thanks mark

Hi Jon ,
running on a external bottle for gas.
it had spark before but i am borrowing a buddy's inline spark tester at the weekend.
i priced up new replacement coils because the sparks were lackluster before.
its just odd it wont fire at all.
i have a donor bike as well so i will swap the coils and leads and see if that helps .
thanks mark
