    Re: How to test 550SX ignition wires & CDI

    The cylinder at the end of the plug wires is the coil - not the CDI. The coil is pretty easy to test with a multimeter. You do have a service manual don't you? - cause that would explain it.

    but your attachments don't seem to work.

    Any clue *how much* lower?
    Maybe I should try going down one spring size to ~43 psi?

    That's great info Zigler.
    I have always checked spark "out of the engine" like that and thought it was sufficient.
    So now ... what is a spark tester? Never heard of this ...

    Help! superjet bogging in the corners

  16. Re: Launching from a roof rack - is this a bad idea?

    I did carry this ski home on the rack like this when I bought it.
    But it was lighter then - no gas and no engine.
    Maybe I was pushing my luck.

    Re: 1998 900 STX Rebuild

    I think you're doing the right thing splitting the cases to check everything if the motor is 19 years old and has a damaged piston.

    To get the coupler off, you'll need to hold the flywheel with...

    Since I bought my superjet & its engine separately I've never seen all the details on how they go together. Usually it's pretty straight forward - but - these washers have me wondering.

    Since it's a two stroke couldn't it run just as well in reverse? You know, by wiring the starter motor to start it backwards? Someone should try this.

  35. Re: Yamaha 701 engine - washers under the exhaust bracket = head milled?

    This is a twin carb motor, yes. It's going into a 2015 superjet which arrived here with no engine.
    For now I'm trying to stay stock with everything until I ride it.
